We are now a private membership supported facility. Bruce continues on-site as bait shop manager and Bruce Smith has an expanded role here as membership manager as well as operating his own charter business here.

We are now accepting marina memberships and taking reservations for boat slips and dry dock for boats from 18′ to 60′. Call 856-447-3576 for rates and specific slip availability. See the 2018 rental page to make a reservation.

Money Island Marina was formerly a recreational boating center that is being converted to support a wider range of educational, recreational, aquaculture and commercial fishing industries. Money Island is the primary oyster landing port for the state of New Jersey and we are pleased that the marina now marina hosts and partners with a variety of commercial fishing and aquaculture businesses that complement our recreational fishing boats.

Make plans now to join us this season by reserving your protected deep water boat slip now for your recreational or commercial boat. We have brand new 4′ wide floating finger docks available for boats 17′ and up.

MEMBER EVENTS: In addition to our own series of membr barbecues and educational programs, and can offer our deck or gazebo to churches and community groups that may wish to host a service or an outing on the bay. Our deck seating accommodated about 40 and our two barbecue grills and other amenities are available. There is a small charge to cover the extra costs incurred and provide help for setup and cleanup.

GREAT DOCK RATES: We have docks available for both commercial and recreational boats. The basic short season (12 week season from Memorial Day to Labor Day)  rate for an average small recreational boat was just $600 before Memorial Day and is $800 before July 4 and $1,000 after that. (Pricing for some docks and boat sizes vary). Commercial docks are also available. Preference is given to boats selling catch through a local watermen’s cooperative who qualify for a no-fee dock arrangement. Dock assignments are made on a first come, first served basis so make a reservation now by calling Bruce at (856) 447-3576.

GREAT LOCATION: Centrally located in the middle bay for fast access to the productive Nantuxent oyster beds and many of the popular fishing and crabbing spots.

FUEL DOCK: Our newly rebuilt fuel dock is now able to handle all size boats. Gasoline is available daily and even after hours on an emergency basis by calling the marina. We take pride in not running out of fuel during peak use periods (as sometimes happens at other marinas) but in rare occasions this may mean limiting the amount sold to each customer. Price is maintained at $1 per gallon above the local street price.

FISHING DOCKS: We have three sections of docks open to members for dock fishing. Cost is $5 per adult, kids are free. Includes use of marina facilities, rest room, fish cleaning tables, and picnic area.

CRABS: We sell hard and soft shell crabs. Advance ordering is usually required. We do not stock overnight inventory here. Market prices vary. See www.moneyislandseafood.com.

GREAT SERVICE: Money Island’s reputation attentive service is unparalleled. Full time on-site management makes all the difference.

GREAT AMENITIES: Clean running water restroom, hose hookups at the dock, fish cleaning tables, plenty of parking, ice, gas, bait, tackle, cold drinks and fresh coffee. Relax after boating on our scenic deck.
