Gave great advice and allowed the kids to fish for free for 1 hour, to know if they would be interested in renting poles for longer periods. Must see for any fishermen... More

My in laws and family had fun walking the pier and seeing everyone catching fish. It is quite a bit of walking but there are plenty of benches along the way to stop and just enjoy the view.

I visiting the park on Easter morning. There was a great crowd of visitors and anglers on the clean pier. My cost to walk the pier was $4 -- and it was good until 7 a.m. the next morning. Next time I'm bringing my fishing gear.

We walked down to the pier from our condo and then walked out on the pier. It was fun to see the people fishing reel in fish. Also, the pelicans and herons were right on the pier and were entertaining.

Went with another family and had a great walk out onto the pier. It was fun to watch the birds and fisherman. Saw a shark jump at some fish. We watched the fisherman test their luck, not much happening that day. The views are spectacular. Can't go wrong by visiting here.

Just 5 min from the campground. The peir is open all the time so you can fish around your schedule. Your pass is good for 24 hrs from the time of purchase.
