Flounder fishing is better than it has been in years, both in the number of fish and size of fish. The only complaint is that sometimes it is necessary to release a few dozen "shorts" before finding a keeper. We estimate that 3 out of every 4 boats this summer has come back with keepers over 16". Large minnows seem to attract large flounder, so we keep plenty of jumbo-sized minnows as well as pro-cut and tube squid on hand every day for our boaters drifting in the bay. Meanwhile, perch and croaker keep the dock and pier fishermen busy. Bruce charges just $4 for a whole day which includes use of the marina rest room, fish cleaning tables (pictured) and other facilities.
We've started with a strong spring striper season and flounder season is around the corner.

We offer the longest season in the area (March 15 to December 15), competitive slip prices (most are $1,000/slip, $500/dry dock regardless of size) along with fresh/live bait, fuel, tackle and the best coffee in the area!

Is it worth a drive all the way to the bay just for coffee? It might be if it is the best coffee on the bay. We import Philadelphia's LaColumbe brand as served in the best city restaurants, only $2.00, that can be enjoyes while taking in the amazing view from our sun-screened deck on the beautiful rural Delaware Bay.
Money Island is in rural Cumberland County, New Jersey on the southwest tip of the state with the Post Office of Newport NJ 08345. We are the smallest community in Downe Township, promoted as "the nature lover's paradise", on the Delaware Bay shore. The community consists of two roads, Nantuxent Drive and Bayview Avenue with an additional unpaved spur officially known as East Nantuxent but locally referred to as "shell lane". The marina bait house is the first building visible as you approach the island from the causeway.
The marina is located on Nantuxent Cove, where the Nantuxent Creek enters the middle Delaware Bay. We are about 60 miles directly south of Philadelphia via Route 55 and about 16 miles southwest of Millville New Jersey. We are 8 nautical miles east of Dover Delaware. Get driving directions from Google Maps.
