Loved the pier experience. Beautiful scenery and enjoyed watching fishermen. Saw a shark, jellyfish and sea turtle along with fish! 3 dollars to get in to walk the pier.

Our son caught a few small fish, but this pier doesn't even compare to the one in Gulf Shores, Alabama! I did enjoy the ambiance just outside the gate to the pier, lots of snacks, shops & beverages ;)

We didn't see any dogs on the pier but can't remember if they "allow" them.
