The pier is very large with adequate space for fishing and the store and restaurant are nice and convenient. The fishing at the time we visited wasn't very good but at the right time with the right bait it should be better.

Would recommend you visit the pier if your in town. It is a very nice place. We saw sharks swimming around in the water. That was so cool!!

Super friendly staff, who made two old vets day. The fishing was outstanding both day and night. Even the sight of sharks and turtles made it worth the visit.

We were there around 10:30 am and was able to see several sharks which is why we went to the pier. 3 dollars each for adults. Seeing the sharks made it worth the stop.

We took our kids here to see the fish, and maybe a shark! Dolphins showed up late in the evening. The sunset is nice. There is a cost to walk on.

We do this every year. It's definitely worth the $3 per person. The ones under 12 are free. If you go in the evening, you will most likely see dolphins this time of year. If you choose to fish, it's $9 per person. You will...More

It depends on several factors. Oxygen in the water, bait, weather, tide and temperature. Usually crabbing in the park is good
