Fishing Pier


The Ventnor City fishing pier, located at Cambridge Avenue and the Boardwalk, measures 1000 feet and is the longest of the state’s ocean fishing piers!  We are open 24 hours/day for fishing and sightseeing. 

Our pier is staffed from mid-April thru September from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Beginning July 1, 2022, the pier will be open until 12 AM on Fridays and Saturdays only. 

The pier boasts benches, cleaning tables, and lighting for night time fishing. Come on out and enjoy a beautiful day of fishing or just taking in the sights.


The city of Ventnor has long enjoyed having an iconic pier grace its shores. At least three piers have previously existed; the first pier was built around 1914, but was replaced by a larger pavilion. Fire destroyed the second pier in August of 1940, after which a third pier was built to replace the damaged one. That pier was destroyed in a storm in March, 1963.  The current pier underwent a nine-month $3.2 million renovation project in 2007, and reopened on July 4, 2008.
