Money Island Marina 2020

The marina business is closed. The facilities are available for recreation, boating, docking, education, scientific studies by private arrangement.

Welcome to Money Island Marina. We are New Jersey’s first soft footprint marina leading the way for environmental sustainability for the decades ahead. The bay, the world and our expectations are changing and so we are changing with the flow.

The marina is owned and operated by Baysave Association, a 501(c)(3) registered New Jersey charity. Money Island facilities, fishing rafts, boats, equipment, mooring and boat launches are available to members by advance arrangement for recreational and educational use, regenerational aquaculture and sustainability research, in addition to commercial projects. Floating docks and other boat services are available at our sister marina about 5 nautical miles to the north but are no longer available here at Money Island. Money Island is no longer a public marina and facilities are no longer available for public use. Speak with us for membership options.

Money Island is being redeveloped as a multi-use facility in cooperation with the State of New Jersey and other private organizations. Some of the former recreational marina facilities are converted to private use and others will remain closed, including the fuel station and floating docks. Non-ethanol boat fuel is available for delivery by advance arrangement from an off-cite carrier. Delivered fuel, dry dock, fishing and boatyard services, the boat launch, bait coolers, cleaning tables, picnic areas, and boat wash are usually available to members by private arrangement. Public walk-on services are not available.

Activities that are already already permitted (aquaculture and research) or activities that do not require a government permit are authorized through Baysave.

Year-round boatyard services are available. Please let us know how we can make your outdoor season more enjoyable.

2020 marina rules

Money Island welcomes you for the upcoming season as we make sweeping changes under new management. We are positioning ourselves for the future as a sustainable NJ Clean Marina working waterfront community; a process that may take several years. We are committed to serving all stakeholders: commercial watermen, crab and oyster aquaculture, recreational boaters, environmental tourists, dock fishermen, government, educational institutions and local residents. The marina is now a private membership-based facility operated by Baysave, a New Jersey charity.

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 is the primary oyster landing port for the state of New Jersey and the state’s second most productive seafood landing port overall. We are pleased that the marina now hosts varied programs and partners with a variety of educational, government, commercial fishing and aquaculture businesses that complement our recreational fishing activities.

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 16′ and up.

MEMBER EVENTS: In addition to our own series of member events 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 season rate for an average small recreational boat is $1,000 before July 4 and $1,200 after that date. (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 may 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 fuel dock was rebuilt after superstorm Sandy 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 consistently maintained at $1 per gallon above the local street price. (The fuel dock is currently closed for repairs).

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

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. Bruce with fish20130817_015211000_iOS bunker2 fishing eel-Money-Island-Marina perch fall 2015 spring-2013-striper-season spring striper small striper released at Money Island
