Our first trip here and we had a great time watching everyone. We just paid to walk out on the pier and we got to see the coast guard doing some sort of exercise maybe with the lifeguards along with the helicopter and lifesaving exercises.

We visited the pier in the morning with our children as something to do to keep us busy. We were pleasantly surprised by the pier! Very educational and provided many great photo opportunities. My girls liked the big fish tank and the windmills. Very eco friendly!

Ok folks, it's a pier. But it's a really nice pier! Lots of historical facts available to you and a fantastic view as you walk to the end. Decent fishing at some times of year (not the pier's fault). Across the street from Sam & Omie's so don't miss that either.

We spent a lot more time here than we expected. We thought we'd just grab a cup of coffee and walk the pier. No, no, we learned so much more. The fishermen we found were entertaining, there were infoboards all over. The windmills powered a portion of the Pier's energy needs. There is an aquarium inside. The security and information...

Was cheap and fun! Would be a blast to fish off of. We only took a walk the day we visited. Kids enjoyed it! Was very clean and well maintained. Loved the little gift shop!

Love this newer pier. Great fishing, and walking. Really neat fish exhibits by the aquarium inside. Very clean, welcoming and inviting. Parking can be kind of difficult during the summer though, especially on the weekends!

Super cheap day trip! I think it was $2 a person to walk on the pier and it was good until midnight that same night, so we could come and go as many times as we wanted until then. We were hoping to see the fishermen catch some stuff but unfortunately they didn't while we were there. We did see... More
