Prior to becoming Tuckerton in 1789, this town in the southern tip of Ocean County had quite a few other names including “Middle-of-the-Shore”, “Clamtown”, and “Fishtown”. These are all appropriate names as the town is centered around the water. It was one of the first summer resort towns, a port of entry, and a thriving seaport. In fact, the seaport is still open and welcomes visitors all year round.

The Tuckerton Seaport covers 40-acres and includes a decoy gallery, a working boatworks building, and 17 historic and revived buildings. People of all ages can come take classes in things like basket making, decoy carving, and baking. They also have a Lunch-and-Learn series featuring a different topic every month. If you love maritime history, appreciate the unique environment you can only find in this area, and enjoy learning about the legacy of the Tuckerton Creek area, the Tuckerton Seaport is a must-see.

Tuckerton is also home to the Rutgers University Marine Field Station (RUMFS). The research being done here focuses on fish ecology and life history. The key to the location here is its proximity to the Little Egg Inlet which is a highly protected estuary making it one of the most untouched estuaries on the east coast. If you love fish, ecology, and learning, you can volunteer to assist the research projects.

Multiple marinas and a town beach in addition to the seaport and research station make Tuckerton the town to visit if you love all things aquatic.
