If the weather is nice and you fancy taking a walk out onto the fishing pier, it's $2/adult. If you want to fish it's more and of course you'll need a license and gear.

My wife and I paid our $2 and walked out on the pier. First we were greeted by a pelican sitting on the rail. You could get within 3 feet and he did not move. Latter there was a crane also sitting on the railing. He also seemed to enjoy having people stand close to him while both having their... More

Nice walk out over water. I don't think they should charge $2.00 for a walk out to end,they should make their money on people who fish out there. After you get clear to end you can't go to edge as it only for fishermen

The Pier is not just for fishing. It can be a wonderful place to go and just walk out over the Gulf. Can be meditative or fun depending on the number of people fishing.

I brought my dad down for a little fishing. That's really the main thing he had interest in doing while here. We got there about 6pm. The young... More

We went here to do a little fishing because we did not want to go on an overpriced, crowded fishing boat. Once we rented our gear and bought lure, we caught fish left and right by dropping our bait into the water. It was a really fun experience!

Nice but expensive if you were going to fish much. $8.00 day but haven't seen any fish this month. $2.00 just to walk out back.

Beautiful pier, fun place to stroll & observe fishing. Pelicans are very entertaining as they join the people & hope for a generous fisherman to share with them.
