Great little spot! Friendly staff and regulars. You can rent fishing poles for $10 for the day and fish for the day for $12. We even got to see dolphins! I definitely recommend checking this place out!

The Avon Pier is a great place to go fishing for the bounty that the Atlantic Ocean Holds. These include: puppy drum, blues, spots, crackers, trout, sea bass, sheep head and much more!

Cheap entertainment and bait. Affordable equipment rental. Kids loved catching and releasing the baby sharks. They were plentiful, to say the least!

Worth the price to just take a walk and sit and relax! Odd, but the pier did sway a little, but we felt safe! Store as you enter sells bait, snacks and souvenirs! Not too many people on the pier and not much were catching...More

Easily one of the best parts of the trip - whether fishing, feeding the fish,watching others fish for sharks, or simply enjoying the sites. Not the best constructed as far as piers go, but that just adds to the character and uniqueness! Fishing licenses, poles,...More
