It is well worth the $12.00 for a full day of fishing and NO license is required. It is covered in your admission. Rods are there for rental. This is a great place to spend a... More

I signed my husband and son up for the Catch it, Clean it, Cook it class at $35 a person. I was very excited for them to have this experience especially my son who has always wanted to learn how to clean a fish. Well, they didn't catch anything which is certainly understandable, that happens BUT....there was NO instruction on... More

Unfortunately, the day we were able to visit, the pier was closed due to a private function (only a small note on a set of doors inside to inform the public). Very disappointing. The pier is very nice and we would have loved to have gotten to walk out on it. There is a nice, small fish tank and informative... More

The pier is absolutely beautiful. We aren't fishers but loved being about to walk so far out and enjoy the views. Lots of places to sit. Very clean. The staff was very warm and friendly. Substantial parking too.

We just wanted to walk out on the pier with our little dog to take int he scenery. Not only do they not allow dogs, you have to pay to walk the pier...$2 per person. If you want to fish, it costs $12 a day. it is a shame that a family cannot walk out on the pier without paying.

Being from Florida we had a level of pier expectation and this place exceeded our expectations. It is wide and has wonderful benches and fish cleaning tables- complete with diagrams showing you how to clean fish. The price for a walk was $2 per person and worth it for views of the beach. There are windmills on the pier that... More
