“Great...Long Pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Great is the only word I can think of.One of the longest piers in the U.S...very reasonable price to fish and I think it's only $1.00 to walk out on it.You can buy your bait there or rent your gear to fish.When we were there in September 2013 they were catching a good amount of different fish such as Amberjack and many different ones! Go, you won't be disappointed.

“Loved the Pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

On recent vacation on Okaloosa Island, we visited the pier several times. So well worth the $2.00 fee per person to walk & watch. My husband & I were very courteous to the folks busy fishing, & they in turn were so friendly & nice to us. And that was true each & every time. Loved the up close view of the many dolphin, various species of fish, occasional sting-rays, sea turtles, etc. Water was beautiful & clear during our stay from Sept 7-15. The pier offers beautiful views of both the gulf & the beach itself.

“Dolphins Dolphins Dolphins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This was one of my favorite things we did on our recent vacation. It does have a $2 charge per person but it was worth it. We did this twice and just watched to Dolphins swim and play for a couple hours both times. While I was watching my husband was able to talk to some of the fisherman.
