Anglers may leave the boat at home and enjoy fishing year-round from the Sea
Gull Pier, which extends from the southernmost of the four man-made islands at
the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel.
The 625-foot, wheelchair accessible fishing pier at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel extends into the Chesapeake Bay and allows fishermen to
experience deep-sea fishing, 3.5 miles from the Virginia Beach shoreline. Cleaning stations, as well as a certified weighing station are
available. A one-way toll of $12 per car is collected to access the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel; there is no additional fee for unlimited
use of the fishing pier. A fishing license is not required; however, anglers must register with the Virginia Fisherman Identification Program every year at www.mrc.virginia.gov/FIP or by calling toll-free 1-800-723-2728. For more information on this program, click here.
