the whole family ages 8-65 stopped and went on pier together. Enjoyed watching the fishermen pulling fish after fish out of the water. Pelicans flew in and landed so close you could almost touch them. Worth the few dollars they charge to go out.

We went for sightseeing and not fishing. It didn't cost very much and it did offer a view of the ocean and beach we didn't get anywhere else on the trip. We also got to see people reeling in fish and even cleaning them which was less appealing but still kind of cool. One word of caution is to watch... More

We got up close to a pelican and got to see the fisherman bringing in fish! Beautiful views! Easy parking and cheap to enter. We didn't try the food, but the bathrooms were acceptable.

I would do this again if it is above 70 but the day we went it was 60 and windy which made it slightly unpleasant From what I understand the water is too cold for any great fishing and it could be entertaining if they were catching some big fish. So between the cold weather and slow fishing I would... More

My husband, daughter and I took my grandsons to the pier. It was a nice walk down the pier and we were rewarded at the end of the pier with tons of small fish jumping, which brought in the pelicans so close we could almost touch them. While there is a small cost to go on the pier, it was... More

Wonderful place to spend family time and let the kids fish. My son caught a sting ray and a spade fish. Great way to learn about the fish in the ocean.

Nice pier to wander down with the kids. Adults must pay, kids don't. Concessions and restrooms available. Kids had fun watching the fishermen and pelicans.
