All you need to fish.

Beautiful pier on the Gulf. It's a modest fee to fish and the shop has equipment for rent and bait for sale. It's sort of attached to Angler's Restaurant if you get hungry. Only... read more

We went at night and it was just beautiful. The full moon was amazing. It is $2 a person to walk the pier but it is good for 24 hours. Watch out for all the fishing. You can get a drink and sit by the beach and watch the waves roll it..it is a must see on your vacation.

Our group went fishing off the pier and had a great time. Everyone was friendly and we really enjoyed our time there.

For only two dollars, you get the best entertainment value in the coast. You can see birds, fish and dolphins. You can watch the fisherman catch their dinner. It's the best value in town

We loved going out and watching the sunsets, dolphins, turtles, herons, jellyfish and dozens of kinds of fish. The ambience was ruined because of the 2nd hand smoke. We even had to endure it in the ticket office while we waited. My five kids and I are all asthmatic and it was very unpleasant and detrimental to our health. Please... More

Worth the $2 admission fee just to walk to the end and back. I enjoy the huge birds that hang out hoping for a handout. We saw jellyfish and small sharks. Great views. A fun diversion from the beach.

This is one of our favorite activities in Destin. For a small fee of $2 we walk out on the pier. We saw several Dolphins stealing the fish off of fisherman's lines. We love talking to all the locals. They have great stories. Don't waste your money on a dolphin cruise. Come here first and I guarantee you will see... More

Beautiful pier on the Gulf. It's a modest fee to fish and the shop has equipment for rent and bait for sale. It's sort of attached to Angler's Restaurant if you get hungry. Only negative is the lack of shade on the pier. There's lots of fish there. Just need the right luck.

Loved the pier. Go on a wed night to see the fireworks. Lots of fun little restaurants, bars, shopping...fun for all! Or go down to the beach and play volleyball or hang out!
