The Ventnor City fishing pier
is located at Cambridge Avenue and the Boardwalk. It is one of the states longest fishing pier measuring 100 feet long. You can photograph the dock 24 hours/day all year long. The dock is staffed from mid-April thru September from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You may need beach passes to get on the beach to photograph this pier. We do not promote fishing in any way, so you will have to go to another page if you want to kill fish. General Advice Exposure to low levels of some contaminants in the environment may have long-lasting health effects on people. Mercury, PCBs, and dioxins are among the major pollutants found in some New Jersey fish in portions of the state; hence don’t eat fish.
This is the third time the Ventnor City Pier has been rebuilt. The first pier was built around 1914 but was replaced. The second pier was rebuilt in 1940 after a fire destroyed it. It was destroyed in 1963 by a ferocious storm that came through New Jersey. The dock you see in our images was a 3.2 million dollar renovation that was started in 2007, and the pier opened again just in time for the Fourth of July in 2008.
Belmar New Jersey Fishing Pier
You can also see our Full Page On the Belmar Fishing Pier with a bunch of fantastic images.
Belmar has a fishing pier at 100 Ocean Avenue. The pier was damaged during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Repairs were finished in 2015. It was destroyed again in 2017 by Hurricane Jose. The pier is currently open and in perfect condition for some fabulous photography.
Sunrise is usually the most colorful time of day to photograph this pier. Sunset can also produce some spectacular colors. Daytime photography after you have photographed it during these times can seem quite dull.
You will want to do long exposure photography because we believe the blurry waters make for a much more mind-blowing image. Add in color to the long exposure and voila, an incredibly dynamic potential award winner. If you do just plain old shots, don’t expect any awards from us.
To get the incredible shots we are talking about, you do need a tripod, use your 2-second timer, and during sunrise and sunset, you may need an ND filter for when the sun is bright. A
See our How-to Section on Waterfall Photography then check out our Neutral Density Filters Page if you are not familiar with long exposures.

You can do long exposure night photography at this pier with the amusement park light trails. You can get the milky water effect on the waters and do sunrise photography at this great location.
If you have a ten stop ND filter you can do milky waters in the daytime. We stayed at a hotel right in front of the pier so parking was not a problem for us.

Avalon Pier New Jersey
East 30th Street Avalon, New Jersey
It’s not easy to get the milky way above the pier due to the two very bright lights on the dock. We went back a second time since this image was not very good, and it wasn’t any better. We went down to about 12th street and did our milky way photography there. You can get some milky water fishing pier shots here. The sunsets on the bayside, but on a good night, the colors just might burst on the ocean side.
