Surf City Pier Reviews
Great pier for a photo shoot! Would be good morning, midday and evening - we got some fun shots there! more »
Only $1 to walk out on pier good for 24 hours. Watch people fish, chase birds and saw multiple types of aircraft fly over the pier from the military base near by. Great sunset views. Nice breeze. Benc... more »
I love looking over the pier to just watch the waves splash the shore, or see the jelly fish swim deep within the ocean. The pier is just a really cool and fun place to hang for any age. If your a bit squeamish, try not to watch the fisherman demolish the fish they catch, slicing them into fillets 😵. Anyways. I got to experience many other cool things. Someone even caught a pufferfish! And it can be really entertaining to see if someone reels in something epic! Mind you the cost is one dollar for anyone over 10 I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong. Have fun! Highly recommend if your looking for just a cool place to chill and relax. Or even fish! 👌🏼🦈
Everyone there was very helpful and nice. My son and I was there and had a great time. We had no problem getting fish. Can't wait to come back for our next vacation. Thank you!
