  • Before going to Galveston I watched the Pier 61st Street on its web cam for weeks before going there. It is a 24hr fishing Pier. Down side the entrance fee is $10 per person to enter. If you are fishi...  more »

  • Great fishing pier, better fishing and service than the competition. Had a blast and almost always guaranteed to catch something other than hard-heads. Brought my girlfriend's nephew (5 y/o) and he had a blast catching the whiting and baby black drums. At night you have a shot at nice speckled trouts and red drum. Went in the morning and caught several small sharks (bonnet heads and sharp-nose). Staff are always really friendly and helpful, will always help you get what you need and tell you what's been biting and where.
  • I love this place. Cheap beer. Gorgeous place to hang out. Great fishing, souvenirs, and, you can buy a yearly parking pass for only $20. That lets you park on Seawall, Strand, or anywhere else in Galveston that has a parking sign. If you're here for the week, it makes so much sense!
  • My wife & I were there on Sunday May 7, 2017. The tall lady working the counter was not friendly at all with us. Wanted to get my senior discount since I am the age to get the discount & tried to show my ID & she asked what was that for & told her for the discount. She was not nice how she explained that the discount is only god on Monday - Thursday, on Friday - Sunday was full price & she needed $20 for the both of us. I have no problem with that but if the discount is only good for certain days it should be posted on their facebook page so people will know when wanting to get the discount for the first time so people will know. We like the pier, good place to fish but not sure if we will be back. Also, there are sometimes a rude person there getting in my face because he messed up.
  • The perfect fishing spot. The customer service is everything. The pier is comfortably not over crowded, yet the perfect place to meet new friends. Everything you need in 1 spot; bait, polls and drinks ♡
  • 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, speckled and sand trout, flounder, and of course bait fish!! Oh one thing I do recommend changing! Season bands or tickets! Its a great price for tourist but I come so often it gets out of my price range sometimes.

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
