Yes...definitely...there are marinas in Atlantic Hichlands behind "the hook".
This is a good place to wait for the right weather before heading down the Jersey coast. After that you have day trips to:
Manasquan...Atlantic City...Cape May...then you go out the back channel from Cape May and catch the tide up the Delaware Bay to the C&D canal and into the Chesapeake.
