Merry Pier is just across the road from the beach and while it is a fully functional place to fish and book water trips, it is also a lounge for pelicans. They just rest and so encourage you you to take their picture. And don't forget their buddies, the egrets, who occasionally perch on the roof top.

The staff is friendly and informative. You can rent a fishing set-up, bicycle. Or you can charter a boat for a personal experience. They have everything you need. Also, they have fresh fish to buy if you choose to cook.

Great spot to get fish spread and many other kinds of fresh catch fish/seafood! Can't get much better than this! Plus the boat tours are great - try the shell island, you won't be disappointed!

We were looking for bikes to ride around St. Pete's beach and found Merry Pier. The guy there was very friendly and helpful! Gave us two bikes and they were only $8 an hour. He told us where we could ride which was along the bay and beach. Very beautiful! He gave a lock for free so we could stop... More

Lovely setting..you can almost hear that famous song "SITTING ON THE DOCK OF THE BAY" ...Lots of beautiful birds, fishermen,and watercraft. Also a fresh fish store right on the dock! Dockside benches with an absolutely beautiful view.You can take a cruise here also! Bait and tackle sold at the store..or bring your own..a visit you'll remember.

Small pier, hometown feel. They sell everything from bait fish to fresh seafood. You can fish there or take a charter boat. Across from the Seahorse restaurant where we were and had breakfast. Nice tourist spots for pics.

This is a nice little pier where you can fish. I don't fish, but my husband and I enjoyed watching the sea birds who sit on the mooring posts and walk around the pier. It's in an out of the way area near the far end of the island Take binoculars so you can watch the birds out on the... More
