Pier Facts

Access to Pier

Wooden stairs and an ADA ramp are available. The pier deck also includes 16 handicap accessible railing locations.

 

Height of Deck

The deck height is located at 30 feet above the water. This height is the same as the Okaloosa County Fishing Pier and necessary in order to maintain the integrity of the structure during storm events with high waves.

 

Pier Lighting

Lights are integrated into one-foot thick concrete bollards spaced every 35 feet. The top of the concrete bollards are flush with the top of the railing. Only turtle friendly lights are used.

 

Pier Railing

The rail height is located at three feet, six inches above the pier deck in order to comply with the Florida Building Code. The railing thickness is six inches. There are no obstructions located above the railing that would interfere with fishing. Two inch by two inch plastic coated wire mesh is stretched between the railing posts.

 

Pier Walkway Surface

The decking for the pier is wood. During high wave events, the wood panels can lift out and float away to relieve pressure on the pier. The wood panels are constructed of three inch by six inch pressure treated southern yellow pine structural grade 1. The panels are six feet long with a maximum width of 12 feet and a minimum width of six feet. The use of grade 1, not grade 2, wood will help with warping as will the weight of the panels.

 

Angle of Piles

In order to maintain the structural stability of the pier during storms, the pilings enter the sandy bottom at a 20 degree angle. This results in the outer piles extending out one foot for every five feet of drop from the decking. The outer pilings extend out six feet from the pier at the water surface.

 

Protection of Wildlife

Signs are posted with safe fishing guidelines for the protection of sea turtles, birds and dolphins. In the event that a sea turtle, bird or dolphin is hooked or entangled in line, phone numbers to call are posted on the signs. The pier is located in a federally designated critical habitat for the Gulf Sturgeon. Signage is located on the pier educating fishermen about the Gulf Sturgeon. Discarding fish wastes, bait and monofilament line is prohibited. Monofilament recycling stations are located on the pier.
