Several shops to look at, a few rides for the kids, cost 3.00 a person just to walk out on the pier, we went at night so didn't get to see any Dolphins.

It is 3 dollars a person to just walk the pier or 6 dollars if you are going to try and fish. The 6 dollars also covers your fishing permit for fishing off the pier. It is good for the whole day so you can come and go at anytime. Before you get on the pier there is a store... More

We tried our hand at fishing but didn't catch much. But we did see someone "land" a tarpon that appeared to be in the 100 lb range. He couldn't bring it up out of the water because supposedly that is against Florida law. Go to Half Hitch to get your supplies, they are great.

my family of four walked the pier it had a perfect view you could see the dolphins as they came out of the water, and you could see as far as your eyes could stretch. It wasn't crowded at all and the people on the pier were genially nice.I can honestly say I'll be back.

It's only $3 for the whole day, and you can come and go as you please. It was very clean and kept up.We got to see lots of people catching fish and we also saw dolphins and a shark!

We paid the small fee and walked out on the pier at night. It was really cool to see everything on the shore from the pier in the dark. If you want, you can find a fisherman and watch what they do. Or ask them some questions about what fish they catch and sharks and such. The locals out on... More

We had fun on the Pier. Its the cheapest way to fish! We saw dolphins and a sea turtle and a sting ray all from the pair. Oh and caught a few small fish.

Went to the pier for sightseeing as well as fishing. Caught a lot of small fish, did not see any larger fish caught. However, I am sure there are bigger fish caught throughout the seasons. Good luck, and have fun!

We didn't fish off the pier but we did walk it and got to see lots of people pulling in fish. They were catching them left and right. We saw lots of bull shark pups. That morning a 5-6ft hammerhead was swimming around eating the fish. And there were dolphins too. The pier is very nice and well kept. They... More

Most reviews I have read I believe visitors are getting confused with the other pier. With the bathrooms half way out and ample parking.
