Yes.  When you purchase a walk out pass, we will stamp your hand so that you can come and go all day long and enjoy the pier and all that it offers.

Due to loose hooks, rods, and the such, for the animals safety, only service animals are allowed on pier.  Thank you for understanding.

There is pay parking, operated by the town of Wrightsville Beach,  located at the pier and along the side streets at Wrightsville Beach.  Parking is $5 an hour or $25.00 for the day.  Paid parking is enforced from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm seven days a week.  Metered parking is in effect from March 1st through October 31st.  Any issues you may have with parking or the parking app can be directed to the town of Wrightsville Beach.

Our gift shop, conveniently located in the pier house, offers a wide variety of sun screens, towels, chairs, bathing suits for men, women, and children, hats, games, floats, boogie boards, skim boards, clothing, souvenirs, and more, all at great prices.  Be sure to check us out.

No.  The pier has a blanket license that covers all who fish there.  However, for those who want to fish in the surf (from the beach), a fishing license is required.

Our operational hours now are 6a am – 11 pm daily.  Due to staffing shortages we are not able to run 24 hours.  However, we will occasionally try to run an overnight shift.  If we do, it will be posted on our Facebook page.  

We hope to open on the weekends in April, then daily soon after.
