“Great for bird-watching and dolphin-spotting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

It was fun watching the dolphin tease everyone by swimming under the pier, making the humans race from one side to the other to try to photograph him... He had a downright mischievous look in his eye as he popped up each time.
The waterfowl are so used to being photographed they're completely blase about humans, you can get quite close. Pelicans are tremendous.

“Heart of Naples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Had a great time on beach then walked to end of pier. We all enjoyed watching dolphins playing and pelicans "dive-bombing" for fish! My 2 year old grandson loved that!! Only complaint is that parking was awful!! I know this is a busy time of year

“So impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Was so in awe of the birds and the beautiful sunset. The pelicans were diving for their dinner and they are totally talented. Beautiful day and beautiful beach. Difficult to find parking...had to scratch hard for quarters and then had to walk quite a way, but well worth the extra effort.

“Must Stop for Anyone and Anytime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The Naples Pier is not only beautiful but also historical. The surrounding environment is beautiful and boast many different options for anyone. While at the pier you can be entertained by the local pelicans, see the local catches and almost always see dolphin. The sunsets are unreal, and among the best I have seen on any coast. You can stay for the day, and be able to have facilities, food and drink, cover and activities. Or you can stay for an hour. Walk the pier, take in the sun and sights and be on your merry way. New Years Eve fireworks are beautiful set behind the beach.
