Step back in time at the Tuckerton Seaport. The seaport is a newly built recreation of a maritime village. The buildings are replicas of the Bay's earlier days. At Perrine's Boat Works, you will see volunteers demonstrate the building of small boats call sneakboxes. Out side the boat works is Gus Heinrichs Sr.'s sneakbox built in 1951. Other exhibits include clamming and oystering at Parson's Clam and Oyster House and Decoy carving at JC C Parker's Decoy Shop. Also of note are Joe Dayton's Sawmill, Napolean Kelly's Oyster House, and much more.The Tuckerton's Light House and Museum has exhibits of early sea rescue, the Light Houses of the Jersey Shore, the lives of early Native Americans and the Pirates that once visited the area.
A visit to the Tuckerton Seaport is educational and relaxing.
