This is the new pier that replaced the old one that was heavily damaged during an unusually heavy storm that visited Southern California years ago.
Nice restos and entertainment venues at the pier
Boats readily available to take you for a short cruise
None of these is mine....unfortunately LOL
Crabs, shellfish and assorted fishes you can buy and have them cook for you
We used to catch these kind of crabs at the jetties in Cabrillo beach but that is history now.
Bring a combo of bagoong, vinegar and garlic if you are not too crazy about melted butter and lemon to dip your steamed crabs.
Oysters and other shellfishes are also available for steaming or eaten raw. I love raw oysters on the half shell with a squeeze of lemon, a dash of tabasco and a cold beer.
They even have a gondola to take you and your significant other for a "romantic cruise" while you enjoy your champagne or wine. The gondolero will sing like in Venice to annoy you if he thinks you are a lousy tipper LOL.
