Reviews for Nichols Great Kills Park Marina
Why has no one Posted in awhile?, 2016-06-18
Captain: , North Myrtle Beach, SC (3210)

We are transients from SC. The docks are pristine and there is a very long fce dock for transients, but also slips are availablw, which we used since we were there for a week. 50 amp power, great local boaters who helped us, staff that was first class. Yes, there is no easy access to town or transportation to NYC, but the park is great to walk around and bike. Security guards at night, and very safe. Another thing we like abou it is that it is easy in/out and more convient for us on a slow trawler for traveling from the Hudson or from west end of Long Island Sound to and from Manasquan inlet, or even Barnegat. Good protection from almost all winds unless strong NW. But, if in a slip even with the 30 kt winds we had from NW, we were fairly snug. It would be five stars if we had easy access to the village. At $2/ft for NYC, darn good. BOATUS. We asked them about Active Captain postings, and they are not famililar with it. Hopefully this will get better with time.

It's a city parks dock. $2 per foot, electric $5
Very friendly and helpful staff. We were welcomed very well by other boaters at the dock who provided a lot of information regarding the area. National Sea Shore Park, a beautiful beach is just east of marina gate



Nice Place..., 2012-07-29
Captain: , St. Catharines (498)

We stayed for a night. It was easy to get in and out of. Didn't use the showers or washrooms because we have everything ono board. The office staff seemed friendly enough. Good shelter when the wind picks up.
Friendly folks.. There are no stores or restaurants anywhere close. It's a few miles to hike to the end of thepark road, and then another few miles to get to a restaurant.. Or use your dinghy to motor accross the harbour. :)
The beach is accross the street..

This was not a real good stop. Came from Atlantic City and arrived late in the afternoon close to closing time. The staff was very clear that they did not want to do any overtime. The docks were adequate. Only 30 amp service was available at my slip. The showers and facilities were marginal at best. Not my favorite stop.

Captain: , Lake in The Hills, Illinois (542)

Not many amenities, but a nice stop before heading down the coast. Channel markers are easy to follow and the marina is very peaceful. Facilities are in need of improvement however.



OK, but not many choices, 2011-07-06
Captain: , Austin, Texas (1774)

There are not many choices in lower New York harbor, so this was an OK stop. The docks are very old. Wear shoes, because if you are barefoot you will immediately have splinters. The bathrooms are really bad. Staff is friendly, and you can walk to the beach, such as it is. Much less expensive than up in New Jersey or New York.




A Good Buy, 2010-11-02
Captain: , Wilson, NY (432)

This was a nice place at a nice price fot the NYC area. We came here instead of Atlantic Highlands and I think we saved time and $. Bathrooms are locked at night. They are small for the number of slips, but since we came through very late in the season, it was hard to tell. They were clean. the docks are nice and the power was good.



Great Stop, 2010-08-29
Captain: , Tequesta, FL (20)

Nice marina in a protected cove. Called and made a reservation.
Nice beach across the road. 30 amp. only, need a reverse Y for 50 amp--$5 for elect.



Algae Bloom..., 2009-08-11
Captain: , Chesapeake Bay, MD (311)

No fault of the marina but we pulled into dark brown water with tons of floating and stinking debris on the water surface. It was too late to begin searching for another mooring so we are here listing to the slipholders complaining about this smell and mess. I'll be out of here at first light after a night of cleaning out AC strainers. YUK!



Nice overnight, 2009-07-06
Captain: , New York, NY (470)

Nice place to spend the night. The beach, although not as pristine as NJ shore or LI beaches, is a short walk from the marina. The park is quite pleasant, and the walk around the harbor is very nice. The dockmaster was surly at best, however he did show us our slip and help us in and take our money. We tied up on the face dock in an empty spot, someone (who wasn't an employee) directed us to another empty spot, then the dockmaster found us and directed us into our slip. The walk to the restaurants on the other side of the harbor is scenic but long (maybe 30 minutes or so). If you walk back at night, the shortest route has a wooded stretch that is not lighted, so some people may not be comfortable with that. You can also get a taxi back to the marina. There are no breakfast restaurants close by. All of the locals at the marina were very friendly, gracious, and helpful. The bathroom/shower facility is basic, and clean enough to use if you aren't too particular. Ice was $2.50 a bag and only available if you can find the dockmaster.



Friendly staff and customers, 2009-06-07
Captain: , Miami, fl (3544)

Staff is friendly, as well as annual customers. only twin 30amps, no 50amps... so bring a smart Y and if you need twin 50s you're out of luck... good protection. It's along way around the harbour on foot to get to the main street with a few stores but you can get some good NY pizza delivered...

a good stop to wait for weather before heading down the jersey coast.

Approach into the harbor is straightforward, the channel is well marked and carries 10' MLW. When entering the harbor, leave the line of NWZ markers on port. Plenty of water in the harbor, along the SE shore line to the marina, obvioulsy stay away from the well charted shallow area just to the SW of the center of the harbour



Nichols Marina, 2008-03-20
Captain: , West Point, NY (34)

This marina is in the Gateway National Park. It's well protected. As a transient sailboat I'm always on the face dock which is easy docking. The harbor is a no wake zone so it's comfortable. 50 yards east of the marina is the beach along the harbor for walks. The marina has a list of cab services and pizza/food delivery possibilities. The town is on the other side of the harbor. One time I was there they had no ice in spite of two large freezers. I think that was unusual there are a lot of local fishing boats at this marina.

Captain: , Austin, Tx (1257)

Great well protected marina. Services not outstanding but fine.
Most of the center of the harbor is taken up by moorings with some room on the edges for anchoring.
There was ample transient room immediately prior to memorial day. I got the impression that many seasonal slipowners were not in the water yet.
