“Loved the Pier”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“It's a pier”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

You pay $2 to walk the pier and you can (at times) get a closer look at the Dolphins. People are fishing daily and tourist are a brother to these folks just ignore them. If you don't get around to it, you are not missing much.

“Fun for awhile, watch out for hooks!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

While staying on Okaloosa Island, we visited this Pier one evening to watch the people fishing and watch the sunset from afar. It was fun for awhile, a good stroll and saw a few guys catch a stingray and some smaller fish. But didn't feel to comfortable walking around too much with our 3 year old due to lots of foul language and flying hooks and poles. They would sort of watch out for you while casting, and we certainly tried to watch out for them, but mostly I felt we were invading on their territory.
