VIKING VILLAGE SHOWS
Historic Viking Village...
A visit to Barnegat Light's historical Viking Village will take you back in time to the early days of a quaint fishing village. For your pleasure the tiny fishing shacks have been turned into shops with something special for everyone: clothing for the rugged Viking in your family and Helga too; antiques and architectural finds; and toys and candy. Newly expanded is Wink which carries junior urban casual clothing, jewelry, and beach accessories. There is Off The Hook, a fresh prepared seafood takeout shop that now features a new outdoor seating area and catering. Ready for its third summer season is Village Brew, offering gourmet coffee, espresso bar, pastries, fruit smoothies, and Edy's ice cream. Visit the shops, watch scallop boats or longliners sail in the harbor and take home some fresh catch of the sea from the fish market. Come take a walk through history and even take a tour of the commercial docks. The dock tours run from July to September. Contact the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce at 609-494-7211.

Viking Village is also home to the fishing vessel "Lindsay L" owned by Kirk and Pam Larson. The scalloper portrayed the "Hanna Bodan" in the movie The Perfect Storm. Warner Bros. leased the boat for nine weeks and son Capt. Kirk Larson, Jr. and Capt. Larry Walsh were at the helm behind the scenes.
