Historic Gardner's Basin
Spend the day at the bay at Historic Gardner’s Basin, nestled on a protected channel along the back bays, directly across from the state marina and Coast Guard station. This bayside park offers bayside dining, fishing, and sightseeing boat rides for all ages. For the more adventurous type, parasailing is offered from Gardner's Basin through out the summer.
From dolphin-watching and sunset cruises, to Tiki Boat fun! Historic Gardner's Basin is the perfect destination to spend a delightful hour, an afternoon, or the day by the bay.
This maritime park on North New Hampshire Avenue replaces the hustle and bustle of the Boardwalk with a different type of activity. Sightseeing and fishing cruises come and go from the docks, casual restaurants serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner with cocktails and brews plentiful. The Atlantic City Aquarium (temporarily closed) offers an interactive aquarium, and special events attract thousands to this scenic area of Atlantic City.
