Atlantic City Surf and Sea Adventures

This ocean side resort town offers residents and visitors many high seas and surf adventures, including dolphin watching, deep sea fishing, surf and reef fishing.

For fishermen, the state offers an amazing variety of fishing choices due to its strategic location. New Jersey is on the edge of tropical waters to its south as well as on the edge of the cold waters of the northeast. Due to that positioning, New Jersey anglers can take advantage of fish native to both areas.
