Gulf State Park Fishing Pier attracts avid anglers, as well as tourists interested in seeing marine life. Opened in 2009 to replace the original pier destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004, the newly rebuilt pier features indoor seating and a retail shop for stocking up on bait and tackle. At 470 m (1,540 ft) long, the pier is the largest on the Gulf of Mexico, offering you more space to fish and look for sea life down below. Watch sharks, stingrays, and jellyfish swimming underneath you and keep an eye out for pelicans and cranes flying nearby.

  • There is a nominal charge of $2 to walk on the pier, unless you are a veteran and then you are free! It was very interesting to walk out on the pier and view the sights. We really enjoyed watching...  more »
  • Fee based Pier (3$ each) but worthit. Watch pods of dolphins and shark. Fisherfolks were catching and cleaning. Pelicans were begging. I have some wonderful pics! Glad we walker there.  more »
