Aquarium, wharf, Point Lobos ?

Is 1 full day sufficient for the aquarium? How long should we allow for roaming Point Lobos, the wharf and 17 mile drive? We don't want to feel rushed. Thanks for any ideas.

The aquarium can be seen in 3 hours.

Point Lobos needs at least 2 hours

The 17 Mile Drive can be done in less than an hour, but I would opt for more time at Point Lobos or Carmel by the Sea/Beach over it. While there are some scenic spots, you'll see more awesome scenery on the drive up through Big Sur and at Point Lobos.

Thank you so much for the info. I apologize for posting some of the same questions as the other person.

So we'll do Big Sur Drive one day(Moonstone Beach, Pfeiffer state park)

Aquarium one day, roam around wharf in evening or take walk to Pacific Grove

Point Lobos and 17 mile drive one day and retrace any areas(Pfeiffer parks?)

we might not have spent enough time at

From reading your replies to the other person it looks like this plan seem doable.

Thank you again so much.
