Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Thanks for the reply. I was looking at Great Bay Marina, which is right on the bay. I agree with you, the marina near the Viking plant is too far from the bay for me. Were the greenheads and gnats any worse there than OC? I hated the gnats this spring! Once we were under way, it wasn't so bad, but they were brutal at the marina until I got bug spray on! I really liked the back part of Great Egg, it was very quiet. We'd see maybe 8-10 boats in many of the 2-3 hour sails we did. That made it easier for my family to get comfortable, which was good. I am worried about traffic getting to the central and northern parts of Barnegat Bay, plus I have family members with houses in OC and Avalon, that's why I am trying to stay south if I can. I had considered the Tuckerton area on the extreme southern end of BB, but I'm guessing the bugs aren't any different there, and I had hopes that Great Bay would be a little quieter and more protected than Barnegat Bay. Great Bay also seems to have enough water for me most of the time, but so would BB.
