I love Okaloosa pier fishing. I believe that it's $2.00 or $3.00 to walk the pier. I only go there to fish, and that's $7.50 this year (2013). I have been several times and have always caught fish. The Spanish mackerel and King mackerel are great fighters and good to eat. I hear that you can get sheepshead and pompano and red drum here as well as a lot of other fish that aren't so good for eating. Don't pay for the dolphin cruises, come to the pier, pay your walking fee and get within 20 feet of the dolphins. They're everywhere, much to the fishers chagrin. During the handful of times that I've been I've also seen several large sea turtles, lots of pelicans and herons and an occasional 7 to 8 foot hammer head shark. The staff have always been courteous and and are usually good at providing information. This is definitely an amazing location and a family friendly area!
