Okaloosa Island Pier, Fort Walton Beach
Famous for big fish, Okaloosa Island Pier draws fisherman and spectators alike to marvel at the fish that the Gulf of Mexico produces in this region. Large tuna, king mackerel, and cobia have been reeled in here. The pier extends more than 384 m (1,262 ft) into the ocean and serves as a great place to watch the sunset, observe those fishing, or catch glimpses of dolphins, stingrays, and sea turtles. You'll find a tackle shop on the pier, and if you forget your gear, you can rent equipment. A beach grill is located at the end pier, and the Gulfarium next door hosts live marine mammal performances. There is a fee required to walk out onto the pier; it costs more if you would like to fish.

Okaloosa Island Pier Reviews
Nice walk. $2 a person. We are interested in fishing, otherwise save the money. Very windy. Fishing pff pier is close to $30 a person. Renting fishing pole over $20. more »
Gorgeous views. People mostly catching fish. Next to Gulfarium and the Boardwalk restaurants. Neat clean and fishing poles available to rent. We usually see Ray's or turtles or schools of fish. It's always a great day in nature. $8 to fish $2 to stroll.
Only $2 bucks to see dolphins, sharks, and stingrays? Yes please. Pier was extremely long and wide for multiple families to walk. I definitely enjoyed walking the pier in strong winds. Watching people struggling to catch fish gave me some good laughs. Sat out there for about 3 hours enjoying the sight. Also got to see really cool jets fly in the sky.
