Great views, very long pier!

If you want a good view, take a nice walk, talk to local fishermen, and feel laid back and enjoy the breeze, make sure to go here.

My husband & daughter fished off the pier. They were able to rent the equipment & buy bait. It was quite costly I thought. Even though they rented the equipment there they still had to pay to get on the pier. I thought that should have been included but it wasn't. They had a good time so I guess that... More

$3 for viewers and $6 to fish off the pier. The views are great from the pier, we did not fish. Saw a lot of dolphins and a sea turtle. Got some great pics from the pier. Its a relaxing time good for families and couples. The pier is quite long I was surprised. The only negative is all the... More

We had a blast walking out on it. We also got to do a morning of fishing that was very much fun. The people in the bakeshop were very knowledgeable and helped us out as it being our first time saltwater fishing. It was nice they had bathrooms on the middle of the pier.Trash cans everywhere. Was nice they had... More

We saw a couple stingrays and a sea turtle this year. Also saw a shark at sunset.The fisherman are nice and let you look at their catches for the day. A... More

Did a little pier fishing, it was a nice day. Caught a few small fish, but had fun doing it. I used to pier fish at night, but when they rebuilt the pier, they only put in small lights, making it very difficult to fish at night.

With two of us fishing single line poles, we caught 36 fish and a crab in about 3 hours. They started biting good around 5 PM. There is a bait shop with helpful staff and pole rentals along with cold drinks and other fishing necessities. We could've stayed longer and caught more, but we were worn out from catching so...

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
