Trip Planner: USA / North Carolina / North Carolina Coast / Outer Banks / Nags Head / Jennette's Pier
At Jennette's Pier, stroll along the boardwalk and cast your line into the Atlantic Ocean. Originally built in 1939, this pier offers a chance to catch king mackerel, cobia, flounder, and many more species. You can book a stand-up paddle-board tour or private fishing lesson. The new pier and pier house were constructed in 2011 after the original pier's destruction during Hurricane Isabel in 2003. Visit the pier house to see the aquarium and educational exhibits focused on ethical fishing, marine science, and conservation. The area also offers surfing, kite-boarding, outdoor music festivals, and food festivals. Plan to visit Jennette's Pier during your Nags Head vacation using our convenient Nags Head day trip site.

Neat little place to go. 2 big aquariums inside. Gift shop. Huge, long pier. $2 a person to walk out on the pier and sight see. They rent fishing rods. Solid, well built pier.
Nice, long pier. Good fishing. Very well thought out, with cutting boards on the back of all benches for bait. Lots of room to walk and cast. Parking lot fills quickly though in season due to beach goers. Fairly well stocked tackle area in the store. Employees were super friendly and helpful.
