Do any of you Sniffers, in the Monterey/Carmel area, know how many miles it is from Monterey to Carmel by Boat?

Also, which launch would you recommend, Coast Guard or Fishermans Wharf?

If you have any questions about Fort Bragg, please feel free to contact me.

The ride from the CG pier to Carmel Bay is less than 10 miles - I think it is about 8 miles. I used to go down there for rockfish and salmon. On your way down, watch the area around the point near Pacific Grove. The waves get big there close to the point, but if you stay off the point its not that bad.

The CG pier fills up very quickly during salmon or albacore season, so you have to go early. Once that fills up, good luck trying to get parking on the street and bring cash to feel the ticket box to get your parking ticket. Not sure about the Wharf launching, but there is more parking over there and the ramp looked good.
