Camden Aquariaum

Does anyone know about a ferry to the aquarium and is it worth going to? Can we just drive there instead?

I haven't rode the ferry in over ten years but I found on the website ( www.riverlinkferry.org ) and adult tickets (age 13+) cost $6 and $5 for kids ages 3-12. Or you could take the PATCO hi-speed line ( www.drpa.org/patco )from 16th and Locust and connect free - at least for the summer) with NJ Transit's River line which will take you to the aquarium. Looking at www.camdenwaterfront.com , there appears to be a parking garage near the Aquarium. But of course, being from NJ you know you will be paying a toll to come back from Camden into Philly. So it depends on how you define convenience.

Yes, you can drive to the aquarium yourself. There is ample parking across the street in the public lot. The aquarium recently underwent remodeling and from what I understand it is well worth the trip. While there, you might also consider touring the SS NJ (a battleship only about a block or so away).
