I was traveling slightly off season and signed up for a stand-up paddle board tour. It turned out that I was the only guest, but they ran the tour anyway which was a pleasant surprise. The guide was very knowledgable and the tour was great. I would recommend it!

You have to pay 2$ to go on the pier. But there is lots of things to learn, it's pretty to take photos, it has a cool gift shop.

On vacation, decided to fish with the kids off the pier. The nice thing is the fee paid allows you to fish up until midnight. Though we fished early morning and close to midnight, we didn't catch anything. However, we did have a great time. I'd suggest getting your bait elsewhere if you can. I also saw that they have...

Nice pier to walk around and fish - lots of fishing off of pier. Nice aquarium inside and a little shop to purchase items. Good environmental messaging throughout.

We have done this two years in a row with our boys. The two gentlemen that are great when helping the kids catch fish. Our boys love doing this every year.

Beautiful view! Lots of people fishing. We brought some takeout food and sat in the rocking chairs on second deck. Great people and ocean watching. Elderly woman working ticket counter was especially helpful. Pier was very well maintained. Cute gift shop.

Good spot to walk to in the mornings. During the summer it opens up at 5 am. Has a gift shop that offers cold and hot drinks and snacks. Great for a cup of coffee on a brisk morning. Wednesday's they have a night session called creatures of the night: flashlight, net and bucket plus a docent who leads for... More

for a small fee you have access to this great pier. We didn't fished, just enjoyed the view. Nice facility, fun place to hang out for a while.

If you're in Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, or Nags head, you should make an effort to go out on Jennette's Pier. First off, it's this gigantic concrete structure that must have cost millions to build. There's a storied history behind it that you can read about when you are there, but the State currently owns it. Well worth the... More
