About
Jenkinson's Aquarium opened in 1991 and is a proud member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). This indoor facility is dedicated to educating the public on various aspects of marine life and conservation. From Atlantic Sharks to Coral Reef and Local Fish the Aquarium has a variety of marine individuals. There is a Rainforest area with parrots and monkeys and a Pine Barrens area with turtles, frogs and even an owl. Touch tanks, Harbor seals and African Penguins are also included. Check out our Penguin Web Cam on the Aquarium website. You can come and go all day once you pay, so enjoy our exhibits then go out to the beach, rides, mini golf and return later in the day to see some animal feedings. Open year round.

Small local aquarium
Jun 2021
Small but quaint aquarium which beyond fish includes a wide array of reptiles, some birds and marmosets.
While the seals look tired the penguins appear to be doing well

Unusual fish
May 2021
It is a small aquarium on the boardwalk. It has sharks, seals and many types of unusual fish. It also has a small python, owl and a snake from the New Jersey pine barrens.

Columbus Day Outing
Oct 2019
We took our grandchildren to the aquarium on a beautiful day. We have been here a few times but the kids never tire of visiting here. The facility is clean and the guides are fantastic. The aquarium is just the right size for younger kids and they never tire of seeing the wonderful exhibits. They especially like the sharks and penguins. You can’t go wrong with a 1 ½ hour visit here.

Good place to bring the kids
Aug 2019
Well laid out with ots of stuff to see in a small space. Depending on what you do, can take from 45 to 90 minutes to go through. Kids love it. Good to use to get out of the mid day heat in summer but they also put on nice program with decorations for Christmas.
