  • Fished here for 3 days and facilities are very good. Pier not as long as some we have been on but great. Bait and tackle and gift shop that is very big. All the staff inside were incredable to work...  more »
  • You have to walk through the store to get on the pier. It is free, and a nice walk to the end. Saw several pelicans and had fun watching the fisherman.  more »
  • This is a must do for this area! A favorite for our family is to browse the shop, get an ice cream cone, then take it outside to walk down the pier. (The peanut butter chocolate is amazing)! There's always so much to see from people watching down the beach to lots of fishing activity along the pier. We've fished off the pier ourselves sometimes. Note that if you do this, you'll have to safety pin the fishing tag they give you to your shirt! You may want to plan ahead for that. Be on the lookout for the resident pelican roosting on top at the far end of the pier. It's cool to see one so close up and you'll get great pics! But be warned, it's not so friendly. Keep a respectful distance and eye on him and you'll be fine! Beautiful views all around here and great photo ops along the sides overlooking the water and coastline. An easy, fun time not to be missed!
  • Its beautiful and it had a pelican who was at the end just hanging out with the people fishing. The gift shop could have been bigger to accommodate the visitor traffic or less cluttered with isles and product. You have to weave through in such a way when people start going through, that if you have childrwn with you, small strollers or harnesses are a must. You can lose small children or wheelchair bound people in the crowd and isles. Other than that, its an exceptional and very nostalgic experience.
