About the Pier

MP 6 Beach Rd, Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, USA, Planet Earth

Is there a map to the pier?

What are the pier hours?
The pier is open from 5:00 am - 2:00 am during the summer months. In the Spring and Fall, we open at 6:00 am and close when it slows down,usually before 10:00 pm.

Can I park in your lot to go to the beach?
Parking is limited and we must strictly enforce that only Pier customers may park here. Sorry. There are numerous free public beach accesses nearby.

What are your prices to fish?
The daily rate is $12.00 for adults, $6.00 for age 12 and under, and that is good from when you get your stamp(5:00am at the earliest), until 5:00am the following day.
A 3-day pass is $33.00, while a week pass is only $69.00. Season passes can be purchased for $300.00

Do you sell bait?
Yes. Bloodworms, squid, mullet, shrimp, plus the artificial lures. We will have what you need to catch fish.

How deep is the water off the pier?
Of course it will vary due to the tides and storms, but right now it is about 12-15 ft off the end of the pier.

When was the pier built?
The pier is the "newest" of the northern beach piers(and of course the best), and was built in 1958.

Who owns the pier?
The pier is owned and operated by Dare Resorts, Inc. They also own a laundromat located at MP8. Click here for more info: Coin-op Laundry in KDH

How long is the pier?
696 feet. We found out the hard way. We had one of our co-workers go out and count all the spaces between the deck boards from the beginning of the pier to the end. Well, he had his head down counting the slits one by one, ever so careful not to miss one. Unfortunately, when he came to the end he didn't look up and flipped over the railing into the water below. The moral of the story: When you're out of slits, you're out of pier.

I need the directions to be more specific. What is the GPS of the entrance to the pier?
36.02.638 N
75.40.494 W

Do you have a phone so that I can call you sometime?
Yes. Dial 252-441-7494 to get an updated report. If you get Howard, please be patient, as his hearing is going. (But if you whisper, "The fish are biting", you better believe he can hear that!)
