This is so much fun for families or couples for a nice walk, its only 3 dollars a person and of course more if you want to fish but it fun just to walk out and see all the cool fish people are catching and we most always see fish up near the pier as well.

Stopped here after an early dinner and ended up sitting on a bench watching people fish, the gulf waves, a big blue crane who hung out there, etc Did cost. Think it was $3 per person.

We went to spend the afternoon here and had a great time. We didn't catch a ton of fish but it was cool to see a lot of sharks. People couldn't get their fish in fast enough to keep the sharks from eating their catch. You see stingrays, jellies, schools of fish and a few turtles.

Took 3 teenagers out to the pier for a sunset walk and had a great time. This is a beautiful place to watch the sunset and it's fun seeing what the anglers reel in.

The pier is very long and has rest rooms and food is served. We saw a large shark and a sea turtle while we were out there.

The fishing pier is a very nice attraction. It gives you a different view of Gulf Shores and it allows you to view the water from a different perspective.
