I've visited this place since I was a kid. I absolutely love it. As I got older and more aware of what kind of cruelties zoos and aquariums, I became strict on what places are in it for the money and what places do it for the love of animals. I feel jenkinsons aquarium does it to share the beauty and to educate people on how amazing animals are. This place definitely influenced my passion for animals as a kid and I still enjoy going as a young adult! All the staff I met always knows their stuff and really seem to care for animals! I love this place and will continue to visit whenever I go down the shore!

Really nice local aquarium, but not small or cheesy at all. Have some great displays. They have a seal show, huge shark tank, penguin, and lots of other fish and displays. They have video shows and tours. Kids love watching the seal shows. The ticket prices are good to considering what you're getting. Well worth taking the kids if your their in Point Pleasant.

Nice place. A bit of an issue when parking because I was in a passenger van and the staff wouldn’t let us park in their lot. Not to mention, they closed off half of the lot for something else with all this traffic. Turned out to be really nice inside. I wish it was bigger and had more animals or events to see.

You would never think that an Aquarium on the boardwalk would be interesting but this place is. They have a decent amount of different fish and wildlife. It’s a small place but they have enough to keep you busy for an hour or two. Parking is a little tight. If you go in the off season chances of finding a parking spot in their lot should be easier. But good luck during the summer. It is a two story place and there is no kid friendly elevator. What I saw were people leave their stroller on the first floor and walk their child up stairs With that said there is an elevator for those who are handicapped. But it’s tucked away by the stairs to go to the second floor. If there is one thing they could improve upon is to have people take strollers upstairs. Not sure how they would do it being the place is rather small.

My family and I had a great time. Nice place to for a day trip. The aquarium is great. On the small side, which is not a negative. Its not overwhelming and gives you time to explore other things.
