We booked the sunset dolphin watch cruise. The captain is clearly an expert in boating and in the area, and gave great descriptions of the local homes and wildlife as we cruised. Trip had to be cut short as a sudden thunderstorm popped up. We headed quickly back to shore, and the crew's skill was clearly on display as we... More

A wood pier with "for rent "tourist boat trips and head boats for fishing. Stop and watch the fish being cleaned or buy some fresh fish right off the boats. A typical tourist pier you see everywhere there are boats. You have to put quarters in the meters to park anywhere around this area which really sucks. Check it out... More

Merry Pier has a fresh fish market but we are not selling fish caught on the boats that do charters from our pier. We buy locally caught whole fish from commercial fisherman and we sell mostly filleted fish but also sell whole fish if that is what the customer requests. You can visit our website (merrypier.com) to learn more about... More

Take a boat to Shell Island, a dolphin cruise, a sunset cruise, a ferry to downtown St Petersburg...sit around and people and bird watch. Purchase fresh seafood directly off the fishing boats that come in (let them filet the fish for you!) Small marina with very friendly staff and great ambiance.

Thanks for the parking validation, but I didn't know about it ahead of time. The dock should be washed occasionally with all the bird poop.

Merry Pier offers beautiful scenery, however use caution when coming by boat. During peak hours, it can become very chopping in this area.

Located in historic pass a grill one can just sit and watch the activities, the birds, the boats, the view across , bring a fishing pole and try to catch one, or simply take a ferry out to one of the many destinations in the area.

Easy parking (meters) and a short walk to the beach. Bout noon and 5pm the fishing charters come in. Stop and book your own trip (the Miss Pass a Grille is GREAT for a 1/2 day trip!) or just check out what was caught.

The people who work there are so fun-loving and were helpful, too. Will always remember using this pier for boat rides.

Dont miss a chance to visit this pier in Pass-A-Grille & definitely take the Shell Key Shuttle! I also loved just walking along the water & watching people catch fish! We spotted a few dolphins,...

Nice little pier on the Bay Side, and great place to fish or catch a ferry, fishing boat, or book a sunset cruise.
