This place is more of a brutal butchering block. I saw fish being hooked through their backs to be used as bait as well as a live stingray being cut up. It was horrific! The pier appears to be beautiful until you walk out, see the blood smeared everywhere and fishermen dominating the pier. They're truly heartless people!

Fascinating to hear the story of the building of this state of the art pier. Cute gift shop and nice stroll along the pier.

The pier has been beautifully rebuilt. The displays and fact sites are very interesting. The exhibits were closed to be repaired in Oct. I have been there in the summer when the fish were in the tanks - there was a huge eel. The windmills are interesting. They were put up by Dominion. However, it is disappointing that the 3 windmills cannot run the pier 100%. The seating is nice. However, the rails along the sides need cleaned more regularly - the fishermen cut their bait on the rails even though there are places to cut bait. Yuck! The bath houses are very nice. There is a request for a $2. donation but it is worth it.

We enjoyed walking out on the pier, there's a great ocean view. It was crowded with a lot of fishing going on, we saw quite a few fish being caught. It's also a great way to see the coastline.

Spent a few days in the Outer Banks and stayed only a couple blocks away from this pier. The pier is very nice we thought. Aquarium that is found on the inside was under repair at this time. Gift shop was nicely layed out and had quite a bit of stuff. The walk on the pier itself was nice although this past weekend the weather was far from desirable. Were lots of people fishing on the pier. The restaurant on the upper deck of the pier house appeared to have a lot of people inside so I would assume that it may be one of the "favorite" places to dine for some.
