“Poor Pier”

Let me tell you this pier is not what it used to be. They charge you just to walk on it and start hollering at you for the money as soon as you walk in the door. There used to be a snow cone place inside and guess what that man pulled out because his customers were being harassed to pay to walk on the pier as soon as they walked in the door. Most of their drinks are out of date. This pier needs to be bought out by someone who cares about people and the area and keeps the spirit of the beach alive and well in Oak Island.

I was given a pole and brought it back. I was charged for it and it was obvious it was broken beforehand. They claimed to inspect all poles and upon looking g at the rest in our group another wasn't even strung corrrctly. Rude employees. The worst was a lady that was training who called me a liar not realizing I was standing close by. This was my famikies b third year there. We always bring 15-20 people. Never again.

Out in the Atlantic Ocean, on the rustic strip of beaches called Oak Island --- looms the Ocean Crest fishing pier. A nice restaurant is attached, as is a small gift / tackle shop. I particularly liked the walk out on the pier (at $1 per person) - and at the end, the fishermen were after 8' - 14' sharks! King Mackerel were out there too. All of it was very cool. If you like piers, I highly recommend this quiet but charming one.
