Reviews for Lighthouse Marina
Rustic and expensive, 2016-05-25
Captain: , North East, MD (346)

To select this marina, you need to want to be near the Barnegat Lighthouse. Not much else is in that area. We paid $2.50 per foot including electric. A deli is a block away. Several restaurants are nearby but open only on weekends before Memorial Day. There is one women's restroom, one men's restroom, and one shower, all rustic. Staff is helpful and friendly. No piers so you need a stern exit on your boat, except for the one slip at the far end that we used. Waters are calm at that end.

Handy stop, but it is a commercial dock. 11 June 2015, 2016-03-06
Captain: , Westbrook CT (277)

We stopped to wait out weather and enjoyed the stay. No services except power and interesting fishermen. We traded beer for fresh fish and explored the Barnegat breakwater and light. We would stop again if needed.

Safe Harbor, 2015-10-23
Captain: , San Diego (30)

Our 43 x 13 foot sailboat with 6' draft fit just fine into this safe spot. Just watch the usual guides and you will do well. Facilities are spartan, but we needed the rest, unable to make it from Sandy Hook to Atlantic City due to rough seas and heavy headwinds.

KEEP OUT!!, 2014-06-07

TowBOAT US brought us here after we had an issue. Dockage was crazy overpriced, staff was rude. docks were covered in bird poo, and I mean completely covered. Two days set us back $300 for a 45' boat.

For an overnight only if you can't get to Manasaquan, 2012-08-03
Captain: , Manhasset Bay (20)

Stay here if you like bird crap and crab parts on the dock, being waked in the morning by fishing boats and want to deal with staff that does not understand basic things like current needed for a boat or where you can get a sandwich to take to the beach. Go to Hoffman's up the coast for a class act

Avoid this place!, 2012-05-24
Captain: , Washington, NC (50)

We came in on a Sunday afternoon after sailing S into a strong N wind and getting our butts kicked for about 8 hours.
We were exhausted and needed a break. After docking into a 20+ knot headwind ( with no help from the men on the dock) we were told that it was 2.50/ft . I paid and the guy left immediately. He gave us no info about showers, bathrooms, water or anything else. These folks clearly don't want the business of pleasure boaters.
Avoid them!

Not accomodating, 2011-06-08
Captain: , Aquebogue, NY (130)

We stopped here for fuel and to sit a few hours. We were timing our departure to arrive in NY Harbor at sunrise. After topping off our tanks, around 80 gallons, we asked if we could tie up for a few hours. We were told it would be $20 an hour charge. We then asked if we could stay tied up long enough to grab a bite at the restaurant down the street, same answer. The kids pumping the gas were nice enough but the owner needs to get a clue. We ended up anchoring SW of the marina. Keep in mind, there was NOBODY else tied up along the outer or inner wall at the time...

Caters to Commercial and Charter Fishermen, 2010-11-02
Captain: , Wilson, NY (432)

The ladies on the phone did not encourage us to bring our sailboat here, but since we needed power for heat and they were the only place we found that could accomodate a 44.5' sailboat and give us 30 Amp power, we came. Docks not set up for pleasure boats (pilings on the outside of docks), but the young man on duty was very nice and we managed to secure without incident. Dogs not allowed on docks due to commercial fishing, but they were OK with us carrying our small dog off the dock.
