A new webcam was recently installed at the entrance to Bonner Bridge Pier, located at the southern end of Oregon Inlet, according to an update from the Cape Hatteras National Seashore (CHNS).
New webcam images are uploaded approximately every 15 minutes to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Bonner Bridge Pier webpage at https://www.nps.gov/caha/planyourvisit/bonner-bridge-pier.htm. (Due to the remote location of the webcam, there may be intermittent image upload delays and times when the camera temporarily disconnects.)
Webcam viewers can also browse all previously uploaded photos, check local weather conditions (which are sourced from Manteo airport) or simply enjoy the view.
The 1,046-foot Bonner Pier is a remnant of the old 1963 Herbert C. Bonner Bridge, which was intentionally left intact to serve as a viewing and fishing pier. Visiting the pier is free and the pier is open to the public 24 hours a day. The site includes port-a-potties, a dumpster and ample parking, although visitors should watch for continued construction activity and/or signage indicating closed areas.
Rules for using the pier, along with additional information, can also be found on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore website. Bonner Bridge Pier Webpage.
