The Tuckerton Seaport is located along the Tuckerton Creek, at exit 58 on the Garden State Parkway, 30 miles north of Atlantic City. This one-of-a-kind attraction brings the Jersey Shore’s maritime traditions of the past and present to life through people, exhibits and hands-on activities.
We had the pleasure of Visiting Tuckerton Seaport and Baymens Museum during the Bluegrass and Barbecue Fest. I mean, really, the barbecue would have been enough. But the fun didn’t end there. We strolled the Seaport boardwalk and experienced life on the Tuckerton “Crik. The boys had a blast talking to the decoy carvers, boat builders, basket makers and baymen who were on-site to entertain, educate and delight visitors of all ages (including me and my hubby).
When not listening in on some of the educational tours, we were able to walk around and enjoy some areas on our own. I particularly enjoyed the NJ Surf Museum and checking out the view from the top of the Tucker’s Island Lighthouse.
There are 40 Acres of Barnegat Bay Traditions to be enjoyed. Visiting Tuckerton Seaport and Baymens Museum would be perfect for school tours, scouts tours, senior trips and anytime you and your family are looking for some hands on fun you can see, feel, touch and experience. The Tuckerton Seaport and Baymens Museum has a bunch of upcoming events at the Tuckerton Seaport that would be great for everyone, including the Privateers & Pirates Fest on June 8, 2013 from 10 am to 5 pm. The event will include pirate history, scavenger hunts, games and crafts, costume contests, food, crafters, vendors and boat rides.
