“water world”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The Viking village is not a town, but a small group of shops situated in what were once
fishermen's shanties where nets were repaired and gear was stored.
In addition to the shops, there is a coffee shop, restaurant and a fresh fish market.
The area also includes a large recreational fishing fleet where you can go fishing for 4 hours or all day.
Of course the most important part of this development is the second largest commercial fishing
port in the state of New Jersey. It is definitely worth visiting after a trip to Barnegat Lighthouse which is just a mile away.

“Take the Friday Morning Tour!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Bring the kids and the grandparents! Take the FREE Friday morning tour of the fishery. This tour is informative, interesting, you will learn something and fun. Carter, the tour guide, is a wealth of information and history. Viking Village fishery was the scallop capital for many years and is now the tile fish capital. Learn all about the different fish that are caught off the NJ coastline. I have been vacationing on LBI for 40 plus years and this is the first time I took this tour. Well worth you while, kid friendly and they save the best for last. An award winning chef prepares a dish for all to taste of the catch of the day. This is not to be missed. Afterward you can walk around the docks and visit the small gift shops at the village. Enjoy!
