Property Description

A 40-acre working Maritime Village with 16 restored and replicated buildings, including the Tucker's Island Lighthouse. These buildings preserve maritime history, heritage, and lifestyle of baymen. Tucker’s Island Light is a re-creation of an Atlantic Ocean lighthouse that fell into the sea in 1927 after years of pounding surf and beach erosion. Originally erected in 1848, the re-created lighthouse now stands in Tuckerton Seaport, serving as a maritime interpretive center. It houses exhibits telling the history of the U.S. Lifesaving Service, Barnegat Bay pirates and the bay itself. Open daily 10 am - 5 pm. Closed major holidays. Admission fee: $8 adults, $6 seniors (62 and older), $5 children 6 - 12, children 5 and under free.
