I fish off the pier 10 - 12 times a year. Good solid pier with plenty of spots to fish and sit. Pier is clean and the people are very friendly.

This is one of our favorite "must see" spots when we're down at the Outer Banks! (OBX) There's NO CHARGE for either parking or entry ... 'tho there is a voluntary donation box if you choose to go out on the pier to sight-see. When you get out to the end, you'll be over 300 feet from shore! Along the... More

Very nicely done Pier. The views are awesome. There are educational displays that are interesting. The folks who work the Pier are very nice and helpful.

We go to OBX a lot as we have a second home. We usually visit Jeannette's pear while there and before going out to dinner. Its a great place to take family and walk down the pier and watch others fish.

Nice store and great spot for pictures. Nice to see the Wind turbines to produce electric. Info about them on pier. Watch out for people fishing if you are just going for the view. Sad you have to pay when not fishing.

I was amazed at the beautiful architecture and the massive pier construction. It seems as though the engineering feat will last through the hurricanes.

We stopped by here on a windy afternoon. The pier is very nice and the views were wonderful. We talked to some of the people fishing and one gentlemen let me son hold his fishing pole, he was thrilled. My daughter enjoyed chasing the birds around that love to hang around the pier and it was a nice experience for... More

My daughter and I had a private fishing lesson on the pier in Nov. 2014. The NC Aquariums own/run the pier so you get an Aquarium staff member (we also had an aquarium volunteer help us) teaching you how to fish for two hours. The sea creatures weren't biting too much on a cold afternoon but my daughter caught a... More

Spring break and Jeanette's Pier...can't get any better that this. We enjoyed watching all the fisherman (and women) even if they didn't catch anything. We enjoyed the sea breeze and the gulls. What a way to relax!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watched others fishing on a beautiful off season sunny afternoon. Locals were catching dogfish off the end of the pier. There were the typical beggar pelicans and gulls. Just a great place to sit and feel like a small being in a big ocean.
