Snorkeling and scalloping out of Pete's Pier was very efficient for everyone, with a man directing traffic to keep all moving. Only $5 for launch fee, very reasonable! Rest rooms available.

We only use the facility for live shrimp and frozen squid. The shrimp are lively and large. The location is convenient to our ramp down the road. The parking lot is easy to get in and out with the boat.

Went on a manatee swim and this pier was easy to navigate and easy to walk on, even in the wind. Great job!

As many charter boats that come into Pete's pier would be nice if they had a few decent bathrooms or a place to change after being with too much nature!

Be careful parking lot has dangerous giant holes that can not be avoided when lot has trailers in it. Some are hidden by the water and you don't realize it until you drive into the holes. General condition of the facility is poor.

Yes they do to include shore power if you need it. Call ahead, spaces are limited this time of year due to scalloping season. You can also anchor in the bay with the sail boats for free. Capt Jeff Towboat.US
