We were a bit disappointed to discover there is a fee to enter the pier but managed to get over it fairly quickly. I recommend going in the evening to watch the sunset, see the views, feel the evening breeze, watch them bait shark and see the dolphins! 4* due to fee to enter!

This is right across from the Pier shopping center. It's 3 dollars to get in per person to just walk. Thu can also fish there too flour a different price. It's a beautifully made pier. Cement and wood mix. Very clean for having so many fishermen. We saw a school of sting rays and a huge school of some fish.... More

We visited on a week day in the afternoon. It was VERY crowded, with many fishermen. It is $3 per person to walk out onto the pier, which offers a fantastic view. I saw a group of stingrays, but that was the only wildlife. Two things kept our visit from being a 5 star. First, there were fishermen everywhere, swinging... More

I always enjoy walking out on the pier and watching the people fishing. The evening I was there the weather was nice, and there were some pretty good catches to see.

Love the view! I'm scared of heights, but I love watching all the people fish & seeing what they catch! And it's only about a 5 minute walk from our hotel on the beach!

Went fishing here in the afternoon. The fishing was fairly good. I apparently had just missed some action as they just caught a cobia, a few kingfish, and a big Redfish in the same area before I got there. We caught tons of hard tails/blue runners using a silver and orange "gotcha" lure. They provided a surprisingly good fight each... More

Great Spanish Mackerel runs on this pier. My kids get nice and tired just walking it one time too. If your ever in PCB, its worth the couple dollars. Take a stroll

My teenage daughters and I visited the pier during a vacation to Panama City this week. The pier itself is exceptionally nice. Super sturdy with a wide walkway that has a combination of wooden boards and concrete paths. Everything was impressively clean, considering it's a fishing spot. Visitors can look down into the beautiful clear water. My only disappointment was... More
