Visiting the Seaport Pier in North Wildwood

The Seaport Pier in North Wildwood, New Jersey
The Seaport Pier in North Wildwood, New Jersey was scheduled to open for business around Memorial Day in 2018. However, due to some delays and issues, they finally opened their doors in July 2018. This new pier was developed to offer various entertainment venues to locals and tourists, year-round.

When we were down last June the pier was still being worked on. However, during our return visit in early October they were finally open for business. The restaurants & bars are open to the public. The Starboard Swim Club requires a membership.

On the pier you'll find:

* The Green Eggs Cafe - A brunch restaurant providing decadent eats with the freshest local ingredients.

* The Sand Bar - Located just steps from the beach...this bar offers a gathering space to meet, eat and drink. It will be a venue for upcoming entertainment events.

* Starboard Swim Club - You will need to buy a membership to use the swim club pool and services. Both residents and tourists can purchase a membership. It's a private beach-side pool with a swim-up bar.

* The Dive Bar - Incorporates southern New Jersey history and vibe.

As I previously stated, we visited the Seaport Pier in early October and there were less than 25 people there. The weather was decent, but we were visiting during the end of the tourist season. If you plan on dining at any of their establishments...we found their prices to be expensive for what you get. If you're traveling on a budget, you'll want to dine elsewhere.

While they boast that they're kid-friendly, I would say that children are welcome but personally I don't like having young children around adults who are consuming alcohol. In addition, kids can't roam around unsupervised, so please keep an eye on your children and keep they nearby.

To use the pool you'll have to purchase a membership to the Starboard Swim Club. We heard from several locals that these memberships are around $750 per person, per year. Wow! Yes, I was told that was per person. If you have a family, that could be a pretty hefty membership. With that said, we did view the pool area and I have to was quite beautiful and inviting. There were private lockers for you to use, plenty of seating and cabanas around the pool for you to use.

While the Seaport Pier in North Wildwood, New Jersey really isn't my cup of tea...I think it would appeal to the younger generation of adults and for those who aren't traveling on a budget.
