Jenkinsons Aquarium

Friday, Chuck and I visited Jenkinson's Aquarium,
a small Aquarium in Point Pleasant, NJ.

It was so nice to get out of the house and walk around
this tiny, beautiful aquarium, located right on the beach in Point Pleasant.
So clean and well kept, we had the place all to ourselves.
The staff was so friendly and helpful,
filling us in on all the "dirty details" of taking care of the critters.
We had a blast.


 I had a really hard time getting any good pictures.
There is a long green eel in this one.

 This "shipwreck" is in the center of the first floor.

 A nurse shark.

 The hubs...

 Turtles sunning themselves!!


 The Bounty Ship


 The seals live here in this newly renovated area,

  Luseal and Seaquin, both rescues,

 this is Luseal.


 The view from the top floor,

 a screech owl,

and a cute penguin!!

You have to walk really slow and read every sign to spend an hour here.
It's small, really small but perfect and delightful for me!!

  6. That looks luke a real nice aquarium for a small one! Love the pictures. We went to our charleston aquarium this spring to celebrate our little granddaughters bday and we enjoyed it so much and the mermaids were there from florida. Aquarium s are fun and i always learn something. Atlanta has a real big and nice one too and they have whales

  13. There's a small, family run aquarium in the FL town that my daughter and son-in-law visit each year (his uncle has a home there.) We went with them once, and just loved it! This place looks so well maintained ~ and the penguins are to die for!!
