Guest policy

The former Money Island Marina property is no longer a public business. It is currently used by several private businesses and as a private residence while waiting for stabilization and sustainable redevelopment. The property is managed by Baysave Corporation, a 501(c )(3) New Jersey registered charity.

Guest use of the property and equipment is welcome under specific requirements. This guest policy is meant to assure safety and security. Use of facilities by guests presumes familiarity with and agreement to abide by this guest policy. The highlighted statements require guest response.

TEXT MESSAGE BASED – For convenience and efficiency, all guest communications are based on text messages so you must have a device capable of sending and receiving messages and we must know the number. Use 856-265-0306 (business text) or, if no response, use 856-237-9199 (personal cell) to reach Tony Novak via phone or text message. If you cannot send a text message, call instead.

4) IDENTIFICATION – We must have the identification of the responsible adult in each family or group of visitors. Please send a text message photo of your driver’s license one time before your first visit.

5) RELEASE OF LIABILITY – Marinas and waterways are dangerous. Our facilities are dangerous. We are not insured for these risks. You must assume responsibility for injury or property damage and hold us harmless. You must acknowledge this responsibility for all members of your group who travelled with you to Money Island.

7) NO COMMERCIAL OFFER, BUY/SELL/BARTER/TRADE – It is historically common for the members of this community to share resources, extra supplies, bait, food and drink. This is not a commercial arrangement. This is just a personal thank you by Tony Novak to the community for supporting Baysave.

It is common to share extra live bait and seafood but no assurance that these are always available. Always ask about availability of specific items. Do not use things without asking. Other businesses operating here may establish their own separate fees that are not part of this agreement. For example, we may host a boat rental business or charter boat business in the future. These services would not be covered by this guest policy.
