The pier and pier house were completely rebuilt after a storm took a large part of the pier. Now a concrete pier with wood decking and a nice gift/tackle shop, it seems sturdy, quite large and has all updated facilities. It's run by the NC Aquarium and has a moderately sized veiwing tank in the lobby, and a lot of... More

We had a few extra minutes before breakfast and visited this fishing pier I have been on fishing piers all my life but this one was really unique. Owned by the state of North Carolina it is educational and informative

Jennette's Pier is a concrete pier that is beautiful. They have a gift shop and an aquarium inside. Great place to fish or just walk out onto and get a great view of the ocean.

...beach, wave crashing, fishing, surf, shower house and bathrooms, gift shop... Jennette's was a busy beach area, but not so crowded that it was distracting.

Rebuilt with concrete, with 3 wind mills generating power and lots of information about the area!! I really loved reading all the information displayed from the old photos of the original pier, maps and story's over the years to the informational plaques along the pier! Next time I'll bring my fishing pole and stay a while:)!

The aquarium inside has a number of fish from the Atlantic with a nice chart to help you identify them. There are snacks but no food service. Plenty of souvenirs to buy.

I visited during a surfing competition so the pier was busy. The employees were friendly and the gift shop is lovely. I was very impressed by this big, sturdy, beautiful pier.

We drove down for the day to get some sun and enjoy the local seafood. We had excellent weather and the people were great.
