You have to pay $2 to walk the pier but fun to do. You can watch all the people fishing...didn't get to see anything big caught but was fun to anticipate!!

Why pay $2 per person to walk on the pier? Depending on the weather the views can be terriffic and the sea life abundant. We've seen dolphins, sea turtles and sharks in addition to the schools of fish. There is also fishing on the pier. You can bring your own gear or rent it for a reasonable fee. Lots of colorful folks fishing - we fished but didn't catch anything and it was mid July so we about fainted in the heat this year. I'm always suprised to see how crowded the beaches around the pier are given bait is being thrown in the water all day long and we have seen sharks around the pier frequently. Each trip to the Emerald Coast we take a trip to the Pier, spend a few hours walking the length, enjoying the view, sometimes fishing and always enjoying the people and the atmosphere!

We enjoy walking piers along the cost, watching fishermen and enjoying the view. We've always paid a fee to walk piers but $2 each was more than we have ever paid. The fee is good all day but if most are like us, you only go once so even though $2 each isn't much, we didn't go back.

Take a walk on the pier - the view is fantastic and the crowd is colorful. Great experience. I like to see what is being caught and look back and see the beach from a different perspective.

It is beautiful, but when we tried to "walk the pier" it was closed. I think it's a little silly to charge non-fishers. It's something you should check out if you have plenty of free time, but I was only mildly impressed.
