“Living pier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

I liked this busy place,which is absolutely not boring, very much. Hundreds of anglers, strollers and bird watchers. If you are lucky, you can have the dolphins show for free.

“Always something going on!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

I've visited Naples Pier several times and each time something different. On every occasion we've seen dolphins playing undisturbed and free. Fishermen a plenty, and catches frequent. On our last visit they were catching pelicans, cormorants, a gull and a dolphin but precious few fish!! The birds were treated gently and well, each checked over before being released. The dolphin had the last laugh, the fishermans line ran out and everyone shouted "Dolphin". Much excitement ensued with instructions being yelled loudly to ensure his safety. From the outset it was clear the dolphin was not a trophy. Suddenly the line went slack, the dolphin flipped his tail, cleared the water and swam off. The fisherman realed in his line to reveal a very neatly severed, large fish head on his hook, hook still firmly attached!! The dolphin had stolen his catch!! One for the dolphin!!! They reckoned it had been a very large fish! There was a lovely senior lady, appeared to be the matriarch of the fishermen, who ensured each fish caught met the statuary size and was treated respectfully, but after all, fishing is a sport and most are fishing to eat later.

“Dolphins and pelicans a plenty.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

I just love Naples Pier. So much bird life and fish. If it is spoilt, it is by fishermen a plenty, who have no care of the fish, they pluck from the sea, often leaving them on the pier without removing hooks and putting the out of their misery, or throwing the back!! if you visit as the tide is coming in, late afternoon, the dolphins are there in big numbers, also plenty of pelicans, even the odd osprey. All delightful.

“Scenic Pier--Saw dolphins playing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

This pier can get crowded, but it is a great wooden structure where it is fun to watch the waves and to watch dolphins swim and play. The beach is nice around the pier. While the place can be busy, it is also peaceful and worth some minutes of your time if you're in town.

“It's a Pier”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

You walk out, you look, you walk back. If you want to, you buy something to eat or drink from the concession. You can buy bait and fish (the only place to fish w/o a permit in Naples.) You can people watch and watch the sunset. Hopefully, you enjoy doing this with hundreds of other people.
