Stroll, shop and dine on the longest wooden pier in California. The Santa Cruz Wharf is the perfect place to take in iconic Santa Cruz views. Walk along the 2,701 foot wharf and marvel at the 360 degree panoramic view of the Monterey Bay, Steam Lane surf spot, West Cliff Drive, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and Walton Lighthouse at the Santa Cruz Harbor. Enjoy fresh seafood, local wines, and sweet treats as you watch sailboats, kayaks and stand up paddlers pass by. If you're looking to get out on the water yourself, rent a kayak or boat and adventure out on the open waters. Cast your line and fish from the pier where no fishing license is required. Whether you're young or young at heart, the playful sea lions will keep you entertained with their water acrobats, barking and lazy sun bathing. Stop in one of the wharf shops for the perfect memento to mark your memorable Santa Cruz experience. In addition to being the longest pier jutting from the Pacific Ocean, the Santa Cruz Wharf is also one of the oldest and 2014 marks a memorable year for the wharf as it celebrates its 100th year.
