Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Granted my current boat is only a GP14, so I do not draw a lot of water... I have found Brigantine a nice place to sail too. A lot of the home owners also rent out dockspace for the summer. If you feel like going out into the ocean.. Absecon Inlet is right there and pretty much a straight shot out

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Yeah Absecon Inlet is one of the only three really safe ones in the NJ Coast. No reall shoals on eaither side extending out for a mile like others. We are wondering what effect Sandy had, especially on the anchorage across from Clam Creek.

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Jim,
If you are still thinking about Tuckerton, try going north a few more miles and think about Barnegat area. I am at the Mariner's Marina. Easy exit off of the GSP (E67) and straight into the marina. Mariner's is a sailing marina right on the bay. A short ride through a channel and your sails up. I sail across to LoveLadies on LBI or north to Forked River.
Of course, this is a few month old thread so maybe I missed where you settled.

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Ward,
Thanks for the reply! When I visited Mariner's, the employees made it sound like it wasn't a particularly kid-friendly marina. I was disappointed, because the location was great for us. So, we wound up at Tall Oaks/Southwinds (forkedrivermarinas.com).

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Jim,
We don't have kids or grand kids to entertain so I sometimes lose track of their needs. The FR marinas do seem to have a lot more to offer for younger ones.
We chose Mariner's because of the location and view.
Glad to hear you settled on the BB. Will probably see you out sailing sometime.

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Hope Tall Oaks is working for you.

We've been mulling over picking up a 30 to 35 ft monohull and keeping it on Barnegat. I love that bay!!!! Mariner's was an option and still may be. We found a small marina up the bay in Bayville with great bay access. The Cedar Creek Sailing Center. Cedar Creek Sailing Center Marina The prices are reasonable and the people friendly. And though is would seem to be further from our suburban Philadelphia home than Mariner's, it's not.

BTW, my Brother has his power boat at the marina at the Viking Plant. I kept my Boston Whaler across the Bass River at Allen's Dock in New Gretna. There are sailboats in the area. Actually, the Mullica is quite sailable in that, east of the parkway bridge it's wide and very deep. Deeper than any of the bays with soundings of 30 feet or more in some sections. In fact, when piloting my brother's SeaRay the navigation concern is exiting the river and entering the bay. How weird is that? That said, the water is clean clean clean and the area beautiful. And yes, with the wrong wind, it's definately buggy!!!!

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

Tall Oaks is our ultimate destination; we're still waiting to get there due to technical difficulties early in the season that had us out of the water (in the Chesapeake) until 2 weeks ago.

I checked with Cedar Creek early this season, and they were full. Has that chnaged?

Thanks for the feedback on the Mullica!

Re: Great Bay, NJ and the Great Bay Marina

I took my ASA101 at the school at Cedar Creek Marina. I liked the location and it seemed like a friendly group. It would be an option if we ever want to move further north on the BB.
