You are funneled into a shop and told to pay or buy something in order to gain access to the pier. We bought something for our kids and went out to find there was no place to stand or sit that wasn't covered in seagull poop, and the place smelled BAD. We just left. Maybe it's better if you're fishing.

Not as long as Panama City Beach Pier. It was used mainly by fishermen. Next to rides and attractions on the seawall.

We came last year for the first time and returned again this year because we loved it so much! Tito and I had quite and experience last year, when we had to save a young girl from under the pier, since that time we have had a special bond!

We have always enjoyed coming to our favorite spot, the 61st Street Fishing Pier to see our beloved Tito and friends. The staff are more than helpful and go above and beyond. We have grown very fond of our friend Tito and his service while at 61st.

Great Fishing Spot in Galveston for the Family. Make sure to bring poles or you can get them there. BRING SHRIMP. With the Shrimp the kids and I were catching fish with every line we threw into the water. Was so much fun to keep catching fish each time.

Tito is the perfect person to have working there. He is hilarious, joked around with the kids and made us feel welcomed. We will definately be coming back here next year!
