Looking for new things to do on our visit to OBX, I dug deeper into Jannette's Pier and discovered a series of short classes available. My wife and I decided to take their shore fishing class, since I've wanted to try this out for a long time. We were taught the basics while spending four hours fishing on the beach.... More

Crowded and nothing special. I can understand paying to use the pier to fish, but to charge just to enter the pier is nonsense. Longer and nicer piers in Santa Cruz, CA and no fee to walk on it......

Really nice pier, just make sure to wear shoes due to loose boards and fishing hooks. No pets allowed. My son with special needs really enjoyed shop and walk on the pier - really nice people work there.

This was definitely a swankier pier than most NC coastal piers. It had a nice twist in that it was partnering with the NC aquarium, and did a lot for conservation and had wind power turbines. It had good facilities for the beach access nearby, and would probably be great to fish from.

Having never fished before, I had no expectations as to what the pier would even look like. It was wonderful! It was large enough to accommodate lots of people, but didn't feel too big. There were lots of filtering and washing stations, lots of people who walked around to help and just beautiful views all around!

This was our second time taking the class with my niece & nephew, the first was 2 years ago. I registered and paid online, which was super convenient, and easy. We got there on time & the gentleman at the counter waved us out to the pier. Jim was our instructor, and he has the perfect personality for this type... More
