SO worth the 2 dollars it took to walk to the end. We saw a sea turtle, dolphin, sting ray as well as three different fishermen catch Tarpins (fish bigger than 4 foot). All of us enjoyed it (husband, me, kids 5, 3, and1)

Kind of odd that you have to pay to just walk out on the pier, but enjoyed the walk out and the views anyway.

We went out on it twice and enjoyed it. Caught some fun little fish and saw a couple dolphins and a really big sea turtle. I really liked that the young people get a fishing discount. Worth the couple bucks for sure.

For two dollars this is a nice walk on the pier. We saw alot of fish and people fishing . It was fun to see people pull up 6 fish at one time.. The water is clear and a nice walk in the morning..

Took a family group to the pier and saw firsthand what other reviewers meant about rude guy behind the counter. Bad attitude and smart mouth. The only reason I am not in jail for aggravated assault is because I had kids with me. With that said, lots of fish were being caught and we saw stingrays, dolphins and a sea... More

We saw concrete, water, and a bunch of folks fishing. Dead fish thrown all over the ground. And the view of the shore wasn't thrilling -- all you can see are condos. Not much to see here, folks. Plus, the guy behind the counter seemed kind of testy when we asked if we could come back later in the day.... More

Saw several dolphins swimming while walking the pier. Lots of people catching fish and having a good time. Inexpensive fun. Beautiful, peaceful place!

As everyone has said it is $2 to walk the pier and $7 to fish from the pier (license included)..my son needed to buy some fishing line, bait, and hooks to fish from the beach in front of our condo. I almost left due to the guy behind the counter being the way he was. He kept acting like we... More

We had taken a long beach walk to the pier, hoping to walk out and see some dolphins. Surprise...it was $2 per person just to walk out to the end. We hadn't brought any money with us on our beach walk, so we had to come back another day with some cash. It was fun to go out and look... More
