We went here based on reviews and were not disappointed. We saw a pelican just sitting on the pier side almost like he was waiting on someone to take a picture with him, which we all did. We saw someone catch a small shark which they have to cut loose by law and saw a bunch of manta rays. It was definitely worth the $2 to get in. If you plan on fishing definitely bring your own poles and such. Very expensive to rent.
