Went for a walk on the pier and was surprised to see an aquarium inside. It was a fun, family-friendly place to visit.

Beautiful view. Take your time walking and viewing the surroundings. Educational opportunity for kids and adults if you take the time to read and learn. An inexpensive family entertainment at $2/adult and $1/child.

I have to say this Pier is stunning. Very long and Eco friendly. Wind turbines actually power this pier.

This is a beautiful pier. 2$ to enter with a nice aquarium inside and a shop. Lots of fishermen and locals, it's a great local attraction.

Daughter and her friend participated in the family fishing class. Had a great time while learning to fish. Caught a total of 12 fish. Couteous staff for classes are very professional and make the experience fun. Highly recommend visiting Jennette's Pier aquarium and gift shop.

Nice afternoon to fish. Great facilities, very clean. We went at dinner time. Would have been helpful if they prorated the cost (like an after 5 special). Almost $70 for 2 adults and one child to fish with rod rental and bait.

Do you need a special net or is the distance from the pier to the water short enough for a 4-6 foot long net to bring in fish.

Sure. Just don't get caught drinking it.
Is there still a Fish, Filet & Fry event on the pier?

That we don't know as never did that, and we've had our little beach box since 87. Go to Fish Heads at Outer Banks Pier
