We spend a lot of time at Jennette's pier while we are in obx. It is a great place to fish or just see who's catching what. It is a great family pier. The fish tanks inside are fun for the kids and educational. We love to see the fish that are found in OBx. If you travel there, be... More

The pier is a step up on pier fishing with shelters and bait cutting tables and water hoses. The only down side is they don't have 24 hour fishing.

As far as piers go, it's the nicest one around. But it almost feels fake. You know...like that person who is always overly nice to you and you don't know why. It has more than your typical pier, such as an aquarium (aka, a fish tank). It's longer than the other piers and has a second floor observation deck. It... More

My girls and I took walk on the pier. Beautiful view, but it cost us $2 a person to do so. There were a lot people fishing. They have a beautiful aquarium inside and a gift shop.

Our family visited the Jennette Pier, for the Creatures of the Night Tour! What fun had by both the adults and kids! We were given nets with lights, and buckets to use. The kids had a blast running all over the beach and catching the ghost crabs. It was definitely worth the $5. The guide was great. The power point... More

Very disappointed to see that it cost money just to walk out onto the pier We only had a little time today so paying for a ticket didn't seem like much of a value. I can understand paying to fish etc but not just for a quick walk.

This pier was so well-maintained and it was just relaxing and cool to watch all the fishermen & the kids with all their gear catching fish. Walked to the end and back just to look around. Beautiful views from the end and you can see the entire shoreline when you look back. Plenty of parking.

I bought $30 tickets for my kids to catch some fish, guided by the staff in "Family Fishing". The 2 hour fishing program on the pier is described as: "Learn basic skills necessary to catch fish. Topics covered in the program include species that are commonly found around the pier, a lesson on fish identification, how to cast and tie... More

I have fished on this pier since I was a kid. The new rebuilt pier is magnificent. They did a great job of designing a pier to withstand the furry the Atlantic Ocean can bring. The fishing was not great, maybe because the area around the pier hasn't recovered from the changes caused by the construction yet. I'm looking forward... More
