We could see Jeanette's Pier from the motel we were staying at, so decided to go to it. It was a fun & interesting experience. We got there at around 5 in the evening, paid $2.00 per person plus tax. Several people were fishing. There are several places to sit. We were so glad we went. I would highly recommend!

This was close to our motel, Dolphin Oceanfront. We would walk there every evening. $2 to go out on the pier for the day. Small aquarium inside and gift shop. Fun decor and statues to take fun pics!

Be sure to pay the $2 "walk on" fee just to walk to the end and see all the fishermen along this pier. But there's nothing else to see though the signage is interesting about the history here.

We arrived when the sun was setting and we caught a couple of different fish and some crabs with shrimp bait and one foot wide sting day with octopus. It was a lot of fun!

Jennettes pier is the newest pier on the outer banks. It's one of the best too. It has a big gift shop inside. Fish tanks and interactive screens to learn about the pier and the ocean. For a few dollars you can walk out onto pier. My kids love it. There is also fishing and pole rentals. If you are... More

We made a family trip to Jennettes Pier in Aug 2016. Beautiful place and it was fun watching the fisherman all along the pier. We could see schools of fish around and under the pier-even saw a good size stingray. We could see dolphins further out too. Lots of historic information in the visitor center and of course a little... More

Sounds funny to say this place is too nice, but I love the rustic and more "authentic" feel of the other piers. This one is very nice, and I'm sure will withstand storms much better, just seems to not have the same character.

My husband and I walked to the pier to see what all the buzz was about. I must say that it's a nice place. The gift shop is cute and the staff were helpful. The $2 isn't that bad. Probably goes to upkeep of the pier. You can also rent fishing gear for the day. The crowds weren't to bad.... More
