“Nice”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Husband and son went to fish. Be prepared to spend extra on bait. The bait shop employees were super nice. My son saw dolphin and stingray. They caught a few fish. Not bad for the price.

“Fun to watch, more fun to fish.”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The serious guys and gals line up at the end of the pier and most days pull un some serious fish. I saw a 12 year old pull in a fish at long as the kid was tall! It is fun drop a line and pull in what ever swims below. Most folks fishing are friendly, maybe not so friendly to share their secret if they are having a big day, but will typically engage in some conversation. Others are there to put food on the table and don't want to be bothered, Respect their space and let them be.
$6 to fish and no license necessary-its included in the fee. I think it is $3 to walk on the pier. There is a bait and tackle shop near the pier entrance. All bait is frozen, use one of the many sinks on the pier to thaw.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

We were a bit disappointed to discover there is a fee to enter the pier but managed to get over it fairly quickly. I recommend going in the evening to watch the sunset, see the views, feel the evening breeze, watch them bait shark and see the dolphins!
4* due to fee to enter!

“Lovely view!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

This is right across from the Pier shopping center. It's 3 dollars to get in per person to just walk. Thu can also fish there too flour a different price. It's a beautifully made pier. Cement and wood mix. Very clean for having so many fishermen. We saw a school of sting rays and a huge school of some fish. The fishermen seemed to be proud to show you there catch which is fun to see. Something to check out at least once.
