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.

I saw people fishing, but I walked there to enjoy the view from the pier and to take pictures. I ended up under the pier taking pictures, visiting with enjoyable adult as and children and building a sandcastle. I loved being under the pier and was overwhelmed with childhood memories from my youth, but also enjoyed the improvements exciting water... More

great way to view sea life from above the gulf and watch or fish from the pier. Cost only $2.00 for the entire day and you can leave and come back

This pier provides great views of the beach, marine life and sunsets. We walked the pier after dinner and it was a lot of fun, I highly recommend it!

You never know what kind of sea life you will see as you stroll down the pier! From rays to sharks and many different species of fish, the pier offers a fun, family sightseeing adventure! Also, after dark, watching the fishermen catch sharks is very exciting! Just a side note, that if you are watching, keep your distance. It is... More

$3 per person is a very small amount to pay for the amazing beautiful views you will experience. It's a very long pier but has benches all along the way. Views of PCB and the gorgeous beaches along the way. You are sure to spot some interesting creatures along the way in the water. Fisherman are enjoying their daily catches.... More

I know it sounds like a lot from a simple pier, but Russell-Fields City Pier is NOT a simple pier. This loooooong pier is open 24/7 and there is a minimal admission charge to gain access. It's quite popular during the day for fisherman and you might have to endure some "fishy" smells. But just watching them pull in their... More
