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.

The pier was really nice. It was $2 per person to walk around on it, but the views are worth it. The pelicans are used to the people. They just kind of hang out. There were jellyfish swimming around. We saw dolphins. There were a lot of people fishing. Several families were on the beach having their photos taken.

If you get a chance to visit here you have to meet "Sam" the resident pelican. He is a really cool dude and seems to enjoy hanging out with the visitors. The pier is very clean and it's a lot of fun just watching the fishermen and enjoying the sea life around the pier itself.

Online said $8 for a fishing license and the sign said $8 for "Pier Fishing", but it was actually closer to $20 per person for the day!!!! We were three adults with one adult male, a 15 yr-old & 7 yr-old who wanted to try "ocean fishing" during our visit and they had their own fishing poles. When we arrived... More

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
