I thought $2 was pretty cheap admission to walk out along the pier and to see the most beautiful sunset. We also got to watch the dolphins!!! Sadly, we only did the pier on our last night in Fort Walton, otherwise it would have been a nightly event!! We fell in love with this area and are already planning our... More

Another check off on our fishing pier list! The weather was not the best with a major cold front coming thru while we were there. The wind blow 20 with 30 mph gust. Needless to say the fishing was not the best but we did have fun catching bait. I did see one blue and a gulf flounder caught. The... More

I always love piers but this one cost $2 just to walk in it and it wasn't worth it. There were a lot of people fishing but we didn't see anyone catch anything.

Its a nice little stroll out onto the pier... The view up and down the beach is amazing. We didn't fish as the guy in the office said it was a slow day...

We paid two bucks each and walked out on the pier. Saw lots of very small fish in the water. No dolphins. We asked when was the best time of day to see dolphins and they just said anytime. Several people were fishing from the pier, but no one was catching anything. Nice way to spend an hour or so.

This particular pier I did not walk out on but enjoyed as a opportunity to photograph. They simply make great photos.

Not sure it was worth $2 to walk out and look at water. Great for fishing I guess. Good few of cranes.

Spent the afternoon, fishing pole in hand, people watching. A bargain for the fee paid. If not interested in fishing, just simply an afternoon of people watching is well worth the trip! Beautiful view, beautiful pier...don't miss this attraction!
