Just a short drive north from Atlantic City definitely try to stop in to see this recreation of a historic seaport town and museum. Plenty of things to see and look at and certainly if you want to shop

Simulates a small Baymens Village, complete with lighthouse, documenting the history and culture of the South Barnegat Bay area of NJ. There is also a very nice Exhibit by Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Reserve on top floor of visitors center. Concerts, festivals, classes on local folklore and skills run throughout the year. 1/4 mile loop walk through maritime forest. Excellent... More

Mariner history of the bay area and the people who fished, clammed, and harvested oysters in this area. Good for kids, a real hands on learning center. Check the schedule, there are often carvers and other artisans doing demonstrations.

We are members and enjoy all the events held at the Seaport. We especially enjoy the Food and Beer Truck events. I love they have events throughout the year. I look forward to us being able to attend more in the coming years.

Maintenance. That seems to be the problem here. Don't blame Sandy for what appears to be a lack of basic maintenance. An orange plastic construction fence is what is used for the "children's maze". They should be ashamed calling that mess a maze. It would take a few bucks for some PVC pipe to create a real, stable and fun... More

Don't waste your time. I live near, have gone each summer since 2001. I tried to like this place. But it's boring and the people who volunteer and work there are not nice

There is so much to learn and to do here. They offer classes and tours. Since the place is open year-round, there is always an opportunity to stop in.

A real treat! Very nice displays about the various aspects of the life and work of the baymen. There are several buildings open with displays about decoy carving, surfboards, clamming, ocean rescue, wrecks on the Jersey Shore, and other things of local interest. I thought the $8.00 admission to be very reasonable. Some reviewers left negative reviews because not all... More

While I grew up on the Jersey shore, I moved away many, many years ago. On a recent return trip to NJ, I had my first visit to the Tuckerton Seaport. My visit was an great way to both see and hear about the history, heritage and stories of Barnegat Bay. I enjoyed the re-created Tuckers Island lighthouse and the... More
