My review is for visitors not for fishermen. Depending on conditions there really isn't much to see. And to pay $3/person to walk out on a pier, with no discounts, no annual passes to purchase. This is a waste of money. The only time it was close to being worth it was when the Gulf as totally calm and the... More

This pier is a Great Pier. I love to take pictures of it from the West. I did find out this year after asking that Veterans can walk on the pier for Free. Lots of birds like Pelicans, Sea Gulls, Red- brested Mergansers, Great Blue Herons & others to photograph as well.

Learned a lot from local fishermen about the area and local fish. Views from the pier were great. Saw Pelicans up close.

If you want a up close view of the Gulf . Take a walk out on the pier if your lucky you may see some shark's from the pier. Small fee to get on the pier bug well worth it.

If the pier receives state funding for it being part of the state park should there really be an additional fee to go on the pier?

Although not as good as a day on a boat, it was still a good day. Caught a couple of fish. The locals were friendly and shared a couple of secrets too. Will be back. Very relaxing.

The view is amazing at this location, prices are OK if u r going to stay all day and fish of the Pier. Not the cleanest place, but it is a fishing Pier, very hot to be on, if u r going to be on it all day, suggest you take sun block and plenty of drinking water
