How to Visit the Tuckerton Seaport Like a Local

Living very close to a major attraction has its perks. But just because you may not live right next door to the Tuckerton Seaport, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your visit like the Locals do!

Our Story

Here are some insider tips from a Little Egg Harbor resident to help make your next trip to the Tuckerton Seaport the best one yet:

Become a member – Not only does purchasing a membership help fund the Seaport’s many exhibits and attractions, it can also save you money in the long run. If you plan on visiting the Seaport more than once in a season (which we hope you do) purchasing an individual or family membership will pay for itself after just a couple visits.

Get there early for events, bring comfortable lawn chairs, and relax! – Every event at the Seaport tends to bring in numerous people looking for a great time. You will want to get there right at the start of the event so you can enjoy every minute of it. After checking out all the vendors and exhibits, sitting in your lawn chair is a great way to “people watch” and take in the beautiful scenery. Some local favorite events include the “Truck”erton Food Truck and Brew Fest, The Privateers & Pirates Festival, and the free summer concert series that features a new band each Friday evening throughout the summer. For a complete list of events, visit our events page.


Bring the kids– Kids of all ages will love visiting the top of the lighthouse, playing on the wooden pirate ship, knocking a few golf balls around the mini golf course, and walking the boards to name a few activities. There are many hands-on exhibits as well as crafts and fun things to see for kids.

Wear your learning cap– There is so much history and knowledge to be learned at the Seaport. Many local family names listed on the exhibits are still living in the area. In fact, some of the names featured are still operating businesses in the same manor as portrayed in their exhibits. Parsons Seafood for example is still in business just down the street from the Seaport.


Take a class– the Seaport offers fun and informative classes on everything from decoy carving to surfboard carving to chocolate molding. You might find yourself a new hobby.

There is always something new and exciting at the Tuckerton Seaport. We hope to see you there!
