This fishing pier is a first class place. You can buy your liscense and bait at the entry. They have food to buy and a small restaurant on the pier. There are nice bathrooms along the pier with easy places to change into your swimsuits and places to clean your fish, park on a bench and watch the others fish.... More

Great Pier for Fishing & looking out into the Gulf Water! Extremely clean. Very Friendly Staff. Not too many hotels nearby. None that are walkable.

Most expensive pier I have ever been on. Just wanted to walk out and look it over but had to pay. This is the biggest disappointment in Orange Beach.

This attraction costs $2 per person unless you are fishing. Then it is $8 plus your fishing license. You can buy a saltwater license on the computer in the bait shop. It is a long pier with restrooms and a snack shop. You can look into the water and see stingrays, fish, and sharks. This lets you realize how close... More

You pay $2.00 to see tons of marine-life. We saw a lot of sharks, jellyfish, and a couple stingrays. Someone caught a kingfish while we were there and that was pretty exciting. Most of the best views of the sharks is just off the beach which is a little scary, but they don't let anyone swim within 100 feet of... More

Loved it! We bought the day pass for $2 each. Since it was already midday, we got to enjoy the pier midday, and then again for sunset and then again for the next day's sunrise (just had to arrive before 7 am). The pier is open 24 hours/day. The employees did a great job keeping it clean and no strong... More

Yes, there is a $2 charge per person to go out on the pier. It's a small price to pay for the beautiful views. It was nice to stand at the end of the pier and watch the waves come in. My husband talked to the fishermen and received some good fishing tips.

Not at all impressed with this pier. Went to do a little fishing with my son and the fee was $8.00 per person to fish. This I can understand. It does cost to keep the pier up. But $2.00 per person just to walk to the end and back is a little bit overboard to me. Doubt if I will... More

It cost $2.00 to out on the pier but it is worth watching and seeing what is being caught. The day I went their were close to 20 sharks swimming around the pier.

This is a very long pier, $2 per person to walk out on it and see all sorts of fish; we saw a couple small shark. A small gift shop and a snack area available as well. Worth the stop.
