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/days for yearly keyholders for fishing and sightseeing. The pier boasts benches, cleaning tables, and lighting for nighttime 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.       


Our Pier is staffed from mid- April-thru September from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Beginning July 1, the Pier will be open 8 a.m. to 12 Midnight Fridays and Saturdays.
