Stopped by and spent a few hours watching the locals and non locals fish. Very relaxing place to hang out. With admission being 2 dollars why not?

We didn’t go out on the extended pier because it was so windy. The whole concept was great! It is a green pier that uses recycled water and no electricity! Reading about it made me feel wonderful. Beautiful and fun place!

Our recent visit was with a school field trip. We have the best time! The staff put on an excellent program for our large group. The facility was top notch and the view from the pier was worth the cost. Totally worth the money.
