This place is wonderful. You need to pay 2 dollars to stroll the pier, which is open from 9A.M. - 6P.M. Fishing is allowed in the area for pay. You will definitely enjoy the view and sunset from this place. You’re lucky if you will encounter Pelicans along your path. There are good restaurants and shops if you suddenly crave for food and drinks. Never miss this attraction if you’re around Okaloosa Island. I definitely recommend this place to all.

The glass bottom part was Overrated. We did see dolphins and a pucker fish. It was a nice ride. There is a bar on board. Pictures are a little expensive $15 for a 5x7 and $10 additional. The staff was really friendly. The boat was huge with a lot of rocking Lord Jesus. I was almost scared. Lol.

We were here in June, 2019 and stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort, right down the street within walking distance. We walked to the Boardwalk and visited all the shops, and ate at the restaurant there, on the beach deck. Lots to see and do.

Okay...so, we decided we wanted to walk on the fishing pier and after that we walked around this mostly deserted shopping - dining area. Perhaps in the summer months - in season, this may be a fun and active spot but to us, it just gave us the creeps.

The rental company on the beach that rents the chairs and umbrellas employ the rudest people. My husband and I were sitting under one of the umbrellas…we had been for hours, we were unaware that they were rentals due to the fact there were NO signs saying so. Some “employee” walked up to us and asked us if we wanted to rent the chairs. We said we were did not know they were rentals and that we would not like too. ( Plus we were not going to give some random guy who walked up to us money. We would have rented the umbrella from the booth if it was clearly labeled) The employee then told us to “get out” not to please move or anything remotely polite….just get out. I told him that in the future it would nice if he remembered to be polite to potential customers and he told me he did not need to be nice to me because I was not a customer. We won’t be going back and I will be spreading the word no one should rent from people who treat other people like trash. Maybe you should train your employees to be respectful if you actually want to stay in business.

Paying the $2 to walk on the boardwalk was worth it! You get an amazing view! But walking around in the shops/ resteraunt area is a waste of time. It's smelly, there is no ventilation, and it consists of only 4 resteraunts and 2 shops.

We go to the boardwalk at least once a week, either by walking or driving for the food and the fun little souvenir shops. There are also sand volleyball courts and a small playground.

Tourists can spend a pleasant afternoon at the boardwalk. There are several stores which unfortunately all sell the same souvenir stuff, and several restaurants that would be good for lunch. Next to the boardwalk is the Gulfarium which i a great family outing and also the long fishing pier is right therer. For a minimal charge you can walk out to the end of the pier and see what's being caught. If you want to fish, there is a store that rents everything you'll need and several local restaurants will actually cook your catch for you~!!! Call ahead to be certain before you walk in carrying a mackerel or something.
