Central Jersey Cruising

Anyone done any longer cruises in the central Jersey Area. I've been sailing the area for about 3 years but just day sails. I'm wondering if anyone knows some good places to hang out. Obviously docking in Atlanitic City for a night or two could be fun, and there is Tyses Shoal which is a big hangout. Anywhere else people have had some good times?

Re: Central Jersey Cruising

I used to head up forked river to the Captain's Inn. Have dinner, spend the night in one of their guest slips and sail back the next day. Last time I went there via auto, I noticed they built a Tiki Bar..outside. I think they used to have about 20 guest slips. They were pretty reasonable in the 90's. and you got a shower key. Sorry, but, I have no idea what they charge now. I've been up north for awhile. Give them a call..they'll fill you in.

In the right weather on a clear night...It can be fun to do a night sail around the barrier island.. Head out Barnaget and back in through Manasquan...or visa versa. If you head north, you can drop an anchor in the metedeconk or in the basin behind Bay Head Yacht club and wait for the currents in the PP canal...

I spent a number of years on the bay, those were two options. For a longer weekend, you could head up to Atantic Highlands..and back

Captains Inn and Silver Cloud Marina in Forked River are cool. You can anchor acroos the inlet into Gardiners Basin ( Farlet State Marina and Trump Marina in Absecon Inlet- Clam Creek), Great Bay is shlaoow but sailable.

Re: Central Jersey Cruising

Thanks, Sounds good. I actually have been to the captains Inn one time, but it was on a power boat. That is also a good idea about rounding Island Beach. Probably would be a nice sail on the typical summer day/night going out of Barnegat and catching the south wind up to Manasquan.

Dave thanks for the info on Great Bay, Haven't been down there yet and was wondering if it was sailable. I don't trust any of the charts when it comes to the barnegat bay.

Re: Central Jersey Cruising

Manasquan is awesome!!!! I swear they have an amazing firework display every night there in the summer. They also have a very cool floating party boat that makes its way around. Just be sure to pay very close attention to the channel markers, otherwise you'll hit bottom (sand/mud, but still) and get stuck! You can also sail down to Cape May, lots of cool stuff there as well!
