It might be Higgs, but the Pier is closed due to Hurricane Irma damage. Also, there are signs there prohibiting jumping or diving off the pier due to shallow water. i don't know of any Pier in Key West where you can dive into the water. Maybe it was footage from elsewhere in The Keys.

Higgs, or maybe South Beach as well.

Isn't there one at Simonton Beach? North end, where Lagerheads is located?

The water might be deeper there than off the ones on the south side.

South Beach's concrete pier, even at high tide, won't be deep enough for me to risk diving off.

Simonton is exactly what I was thinking although I couldn’t be sure there aren’t ‘no diving’ signs but I have seen people jumping off the pier numerous times.

That’s a great little beach and very close to the house I stay in so I go there often when in town.

The pier off the Hyatt Centric Orion?
