I moved to the Jersey Shore two years ago and was looking forward to my visit to the seaport. It was unlike anything I expected. It is totally destroyed from Sandy and 90% of the buildings are closed. I can appreciate the fact they need money to rebuild, but should be forthright in their advertisements. Anyone who gives it a... More

The seaport offers an educational and historical look into the rich past of this area while totally entertaining children and adults alike. There is miniature golf, boat rides, entertainment, food and turtles!! Also a great exhibit by Jacques Cousteau!!

I was a little disappointed. I arrived when it opened on a Saturday and it was a ghost town. I'm guessing, the best time to visit is when they are having an event, which they do frequently. I believe the place will be more alive. Sandy took it's toll, many structures still closed. They love their duck decoy's. Plenty on... More

A quaint little boating village with a beautiful museum. There are docks and animal tending areas to view. A wonderful duck-boat maker in a separate building, love the smell of fresh-cut wood. We had gone for the duck-hunting and boat event. Lots of fun dog trials, including "dock dogs", to watch.

Neat area, not much was open due to still being closed from Hurricane Sandy. Still some parts in disrepair. A nice drive if you are not far away and looking for something to do rather quickly.

This area offers something "neat" various times of the year and the Christmas Holiday time is one of the better ones.They have a Christkindlmarkt theme during the early part of December which has vendors and food for sale which is when these pictures were taken.

What a charming place by the shore to visit. Interesting museums at the Tuckerton Lighthouse and the Seaport itself showcasing and demonstrating the local area and the Pine Barrens. Great for kids and families and for all! The restaurant is good too. Sit outside on a warm sunny day. The Tuckerton Seaport has fun events scheduled all year long. Visit... More
