Great Sunset

My wife and I watched the sunset, It was very nice. Their were a ton of people fishing off the pier and catching fish like crazy. We loved just watching them.

Great fishing and very friendly community $2 to walk it would go towards fishing if you opt to do so.

Took a stroll on the pier. The breeze on the pier was wonderful. We saw dolphins trying to snag the fish being reeled in. Lots of fishermen and women trying their hand. Be careful of the flying hooks.

We had the greatest time at the pier. You can rent poles and buy your bait right there at the little shack. There were dolphins and a hammer head feeding while we were there. We caught several small fish. Hope you have fun!

Recently on a Wednesday evening while staying on Okaloosa Island our family decided to visit the pier after dinner. We were only expecting a pleasant stroll and some nice views.

Wife and I took a leisurely stroll on the peer. Good people watching of some seasoned fishermen/women. Spotted some Dolphins near the pier. The fish were biting. $2 per person admission.

My husband and son had great luck fishing off that pier. Just for sport, not for our dinner :) That's all that mattered, they had fun!

We went at night and it was just beautiful. The full moon was amazing. It is $2 a person to walk the pier but it is good for 24 hours. Watch out for all the fishing. You can get a drink and sit by the beach and watch the waves roll it..it is a must see on your vacation.
