The Capitola WharfThe riches of river and sea have attracted people to this area for hundreds of years. The Soquel Ohlone Indians once hunted and gathered in nearby valleys and along the shore, Later Chinese and Italian fishermen harvested the bay's fish and shellfish. In the late 1800s, visitors seeking relief from the valley heat were attracted to cooler weather and scenic coastal beauty. These days Capitola's charm is enhanced by its intimate relationship with the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Sanctuary's heath is linked to human activity on land and waterways leading to the bay.
