Sandy Hook - NY harbor

I am going to be crusing through the area this summer and am wondering about morings/anchorages that are available. Is there any reason to go behind Stanton Is?

Sandy Hook - NY harbor

Great Kills on Staten Island east shore south of VN bridge is good. Have not used those along sandy hook as they were out of the way and looked exposed on the chart. Behind Staten Island covers a lot of ground but it is very busy with commercial traffic and I know of no good anchorages there.
They may well exist but would be out of your way I would guess.

Sandy Hook - NY harbor

From what I''ve heard (from several sources) is that two of the best achorages are the Perth Amboy (or is it Raritan?) Yacht Club on the NJ side where NJ and Staten Island meet, and Great Kills Harbor, about halfway up Staten Island''s eastern shore. They''re both easy to find on Maptech''s New York Harbor & Approaches chart.

Atlantic Highlands Municipal Marina offers moorings and also has a safe protected anchorage. There is launch service too. It is about 1 1/2 hours south of the Verazano Bridge. Also might check Liberty marina on the NJ side of the Hudson across from NYC. Check your Embassy Guide.

Sandy Hook is by far one of the most beautiful settings to anchor out in--peaceful, secluded and you can see for miles. We anchored there for the 4th of July and were able to see fireworks for at least 20 towns--not to mention the breathtaking sunsets...I am going to post a pic!!!

Atlantic Highlands has plenty of space to throw the hook or you can rent a REALLY expensive mooring (think it was $60 last time I used one). There is also a little anchorage in Horseshoe Cove, about halfway between the point and Atl. Highlands but you have to be careful of the bar and fish traps going in. It's also exposed in a W-NW wind. I usually use it if the forecast is good. Right behind the Statue of Liberty is a nice, completely protected spot for two or three boats. Follow the channel in S. of the statue and then HUG the bulkhead all the way in. Don't think I'd try it if the tide was dead low. It's a good stop if you're going to proceed through the E.River to LI Sound and are waiting to catch the current going through.

What is the anchorage at Horseshoe Cove like these days? Someone said that the sand spit that used to protect the anchorage has mostly been eroded away.

Where is your concert? That might tell you where to park.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Couple notes. First, the thread is nearly 10 years old, but wanted to make sure the info was correct.

Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club (ahyc.net) offers moorings with launch service to non-members for $50/night. The town also has a marina and I believe the rates are under $3/ft for transients.

You may also anchor inside the breakwater, outside the marked channel. New markers were installed in 2011 as many cruisers were anchoring in the channel. The club will provide launch service for $35/night.

The town is a regular stop before jumps south, to Bermuda or across the Atlantic due to the ease of resupplying. There is a small, but well stocked chandlery, auto parts store and large supermarket all within walking distance. The restaurants (particularly the Flaky Tart bakery) make it a nice weekend destination as well.
