Our anniversary evening ended with a a stunning sunset display! Most people were gone as they were about to close at sundown. Plenty of places to dock boats, and various amenities make Pete's Pier a place to park for a perfect evening wind-down.

We called the Marina and inquired about a boat slip and were told that they had 1 slip left so my husband and I drove 31/2 hours to see the slip and Marina . When we called the person we spoke to gave us the price and when we got there the price was conveniently doubled. We have 3 boats that are all insured and in great shape and were planning on eventually moving them all there but I was so upset that we weren’t told upfront that there was a $1200 deposit on the slip until we have decided to take our business elsewhere.The person that we spoke to knew how far we were driving and I was terribly annoyed that my only off day this week was ruined by someone who isn’t open and honest. I am a manager over 10 hospitals and long term care facilities and feel that it’s bad business not to disclose all fees up front. I hope other people have a better experience than I did.

Full disclosure , we didn't go there but did take a river cruise past it . It appears to be in a good location and seems like a lot of people go there. I did however take a selfie of Pete's Pier from across the bay because my name is Pete

Great place to launch kayak/paddle boards. Very close to Three Sisters. Expect however not to get a detailed explanation of where to go from the guys you pay. We got "go to the right you can't miss it" & "go to the left you can't miss it" Well, they don't know me... I could have easily missed it with all the inlets and options. -To get to Three Sisters, put in where the boat ramp is. Paddle out and to the left. Go under the bridge. You may see mandates anywhere along this paddle. Continue straight till you see all the boats anchored. Three sisters will be to the left of all the anchored boats. There is a tie up spot for your kayak/paddle board past the roped off area on your left. You are allowed to tie up to the white boeys and rope. There are volunteers in yellow vests floating around. Just ask. -note there is one spot on the left in the river before Three sisters that boats may stop. You will see manatees there too, but trust me, keep going to Three Sisters too. -To get to Hunter Spring go right out of the boat ramp and right again, hugging the huge pier building. As you get to the end of the pier building, you will continue straight. You will see a boardwalk straight ahead in the distance. THAT is Hunter Spring park. You are aloud to pull your kayak/paddle board onto the beach and use the restrooms or go out to the swim beach that had manatees in it both times we were there. There are WAY less people here so the experience with the manatees is much more intimate. -paddling from Petes to both locations I mentioned, and back to the pier was just over 2 miles.
