We are a family friendly fishing pier. We offer rod rentals, bait, cold drinks, sno cones, wine, cold beer, margaritas, snacks, pizza, hot dogs, gifts, and lots of fun. In addition to having a pier for fishing, we also have an observation deck for those who dont want to fish, but want to sit above the water and enjoy the cool breeze of the Gulf of Mexico.

My secret cheap things to enjoy about galveston..61st street pier. Here is the scoop.

I loved this pier. It was a truly great find. We went on a weekday so there wasnt really much of a crowd. I would definitely go here again.

Fun place for a good view or to fish. Usually clean and friendly people around to watch fish. It can be pricey to fish if you have to rent gear.

Me and my husband went fishing on the pier and had a blast! Even when it's really hot outside, it feels really good on the pier cause the breeze is usually blowing. We caught fish like crazy! When we went there was plenty of people out there but it didn't feel crowded like you would think and everyone was friendly... More

This place will try and get every penny from you that they can. It cost $10 just to walk through the door. They say you can bring an ice chest but they search your ice chest. Very unprofessional. The guy workin inside was extremely rude!
