a walk on the pier is warm and relaxing, you might even see someone catch a fish, the ambitious pelicans can be fun for kids as well.

What fun it was to go on this pier. It was worth the price of admission. Pelicans were in abundance and afforded lots of photographic opportunities. It was very relaxing and peaceful and we enjoyed walking the pier.

You have to pay to go out here and we just walked out for the view. You can fish out here if you have a salt water license. we saw three dolphins while we were out here. It's the longest pier in the gulf.
