Important Driving Information
Access to the pier is via a long planked causeway, please drive slowly–maximum speed 5 mph.
Parking is very limited on the pier. Do not park inside the building, this is reserved for tenants.
If the parking area appears to be full, or nearly full, overflow parking is on 39th Street.
You can also use the specially marked spaces at the Hampton Inn & Suites lot.
Please consider walking out, if you are able.
On the Pier
Wear sensible shoes on the pier. You will be walking on planks and other uneven surfaces so “watch your step.”
Do not allow children out of your sight. Beyond the Coffee Girl, the dock does not have handrails or barriers.
It is self-guided and you can walk around and touch most of the machines, fish boats and nets.
There is a fascinating 1960 black & white TV program lasting 25 minutes about the cannery and the workers.
