The Ocean Beach Pier Welcome to The Ocean Beach Pier, the longest concrete pier on the west coast. The Ocean Beach Pier is the home of The Ocean Beach Cafe, a snack shop and plenty of seagulls and pelicans. Visitors enjoy watching surfers, eating lunch, fishing and enjoying a relaxing walk in the fresh ocean air.
At 1,971 feet the Ocean Beach Pier is the longest concrete pier on the west coast. It also has a T-shape at the end extending 360 feet to the south end and 193 feet to the north end. The far end extends into the Point Loma kelp bed and is blanketed by kelp much of the year. This can attract some kelp resident species but can also cause a lot of tangles, usually at the most inopportune time -- such as when you have a large fish attached to the end of your line. At this far end, where the water is 25 feet deep, the most common species are kelp bass, sand bass, several variety of perch, bonito, mackerel, scorpionfish, halibut and, quite often, California lobster. Occasionally a black sea bass (giant sea bass) will also pass through this area. In August of 1997, a 9-pound baby black was caught and quickly released back into the water. Who knows, mama and papa blackie also might be around.
