Nice fishing pier, $3 to walk on, $6 to fish, bring your own rod or rent one. Many locals go and catch the bait off the pier. Pier is kept very clean and tidy, sign says "NO PROFANITY", nice touch! Good place to walk about, bring kids, or try your luck with rod & reel. Pier Park shopping is just... More

The pier was nice, well maintained, had a great view. It was neat to look through the clear waters and try to find fish below. We saw a sea turtle the day we were there.

This was my first visit to the pier. The pier is for anglers, people watching, and taking in the view! This will be one of my first stops during my next visit. This place has ample parking, a gift shop, and restrooms.

My teenagers wanted to do some fishing while on spring break. Got the gear rental from Half Hitch, right around the corner from the pier ticket office. Had fun even though we didn't catch a thing.

We were here in late March/early April, 2015. I am an amateur photographer and enjoy trying to get the best shot/view/picture possible. My husband and two college age girls walked the pier and took awesome pictures at sunset. There are so many people fishing and catching the big fish. I really enjoyed the time on the pier and will treasure... More

It was poring down rain, so we put on our rain jackets and walked the pier, we were the only people on the pier! It was like our private oasis!

We really liked seeing all the pictures of large fish and sharks that were caught at the pier, quite stunning. When we visited, the sun was setting which made for a great backdrop to some family photos. We also were lucky enough to watch a young man as he tired out a giant fish on his reel, really neat.
