  • The absolute best pier I've ever been too! Every single staff member is respectful and helpful. I've caught drums, reds, stingrays over a foot big, sharks of different species no smaller than 3 foot, ...  more »
  • Nice Pier to fish from. Right across the stree from our hotel. Reasonably priced, they set you up with everything you need to spend a nice long afternoon fishing, if that's your thing.  more »
  • On this day we went to Galveston too windy and while my husband and son were playing mini-golf I went for a walk on the pier 61. Paid $3.00 to enter the pier and go to the tip of it. There were many fishermen.

  • This was certainly the highlight of my trip. The price was reasonably and I loved the friendly atmosphere. It was so peaceful and I really got to enjoy a peaceful day out on the pier. The staff and people fishing there were the friendliest people I have ever met, a fishermen let me hold a baby shark he had just caught. This was a pleasant place to spend my day at, I would recommend it to anyone else if they ever visit Galveston.
  • The Pier was a fun experience. First, you walk into their little shack and it has a cute little beach atmosphere. As you walk around, there are little areas where you stick your head in and take pictures. The dock is great for fishing. When I was there someone caught a shark. Overall great.
  • My family and I has made the 61st street pier one our favorite family outings. We average six to eight times per year. We live in Tomball, Texas. When we have the time on our busy schedules, we will fit a trip to the pier. My wif will watch the Web cam to see how the water is and to watch people fishing. Ithe would be nice to have a family package with unlimited fishing.
  • We had the opportunity to go and checkout the view on top of the Pier and it was quite a sight to see. The atmosphere was quite breath-taking and all the vibrant colors of the walls made a pretty backdrop for pictures!! When entering back into the first floor we were greeted by the friendly staff and for sure has made it a place I would return to and recommend strongly to anyone who visits Galveston.
  • being on this pier was a great experience it was fun and interesting. Also the art work is amazing. I would totally recommend this pier to a friend and also this a we had a great time. I would defiantly visit that pier again for sure.
