|Historic Gardner's Basin features the Ocean Life Center which is a nice aquarium and is rarely crowded. The Basin also offers deep-sea and back bay fishing charters as well as a variety of cruises offered by Atlantic City Cruises, among them dolphin-watching cruises. One neat attraction is the Diving Bell, once an attraction at Atlantic City's Steel Pier. Among the special events held at Historic Gardner's Basin is the New Jersey Fresh Seafood Festival, celebrated every June. Historic Gardner's Basin even has its own artists' colony.
