The 1,000-foot-long pier is a popular fishing spot for locals. Additionally, $2 will get you access to the pier and the aquarium but you'll have to pay more to fish. You'll see plenty of marine life such as manta rays and jellyfish. You can rent poles and buy bait and even get fishing lessons. The pier is open every day from 7 AM to 9 PM. Parking is located right off of S. Virginia Dare Trail.
