Reviews for Shelter Harbor Marina
Next door to Beach Haven attractions, 2016-08-30
Captain: , Princeton Jct. NJ (30)

We stayed 3 nights in early August, traveling down from Island Heights. Nice marina with adequate shower/locker facilities and a roof top pool. Marina personnel were all very nice and helpful. A bit pricy at $145/day, but you can't beat the location. Right next door to Beach Haven shopping and attractions!

We decided to "voyage" from Toms River down bay to Long Beach Island for an early September beach vacation. We chose Shelter Harbor based upon suggestions from LBI residents, and we were well pleased. We think you will be also.

Nicest place on LBI south of Manahawkin Bridge, 2014-08-21
Captain: , Brick, NJ (193)

We've stayed at all 3 Beach Haven marinas and this is by far the nicest one. Pool, hot tub, available floating docks, dockside pumpout, well protected and calm, shortest walk to beach and shopping/dining. Staff is great and very attentive. Flat rate this summer is $145/night. Dog friendly. Approach is skinny this year but it will be dredged this fall. Until then best to plan entry and exit at high tide.

nice location....but, 2013-07-07
Captain: , staten island (511)

location was great in midst of lots t do but the dock master was not very helpful as in this is your slip and vague instrutions on its location , by phone we where told floating dock on arrival it was stationary , no one to help our tying lines or show us location ,granted it was last season , but we are goin down next week and will dock elswhere 2 stars reflect location only

Shallow channel & rude staff, 2012-08-28
Captain: , Barnegat Bay (30)

The channel into Shelter Harbor is badly shoaled. Boats drawing more than 2 1/2 ft should proceed with caution, especially at low tide.

Once in you'll deal with office staff that are odd and a dockmaster who's difficult and rude.

I'm in no hurry to go back.

Great transient stop, 2011-10-02
Captain: , Waretown, NJ (344)

Spent two nights here for the weekend of the annual Chowderfest. While LBI is relatively quiet this time of year there was ws plenty of open restaurants and bars open. The fairways to the slips are tight to turn into the slips if your boat is on the larger side but there is protection from wind and currents. Cable TV was available and good water pressure at the docks.

Great stay, 2011-07-31
Captain: , Mystic Islands, NJ (22)

My wife, two small kids and yellow lab stayed over at this marina in our very modest 30ft chaparral. I say modest because we were the smallest vessel around. But everyone was very nice, nice staff, nice captain from a couple of slips down that helped us tie up. Like everyone else says great location. Very clean and maintained, pool was nice. Definitely will be coming back even at $145 a night

Great marina if you can get a slip, 2011-07-03
Captain: , Beach haven NJ (510)

This protected marina is one of the best ever. It has a pool, inside and outdoor jaccuzzis and new floating docks. There are pumpout facilities at each slip and there are modern and clean bathrooms with showers at several locations in the marina. High defintion cable TV is avialble in every slip.The best thing about this marina is it's location. You can walk to the beach, has an amusement park, water park, miniture gollf, shopping and many great restaurants within a five minute walk from the marina. On Sunday mornings the club house is open for free coffe. The Shelter Harbor website has pictures of all amenties that can be viewed on line.

Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale, FL (100)

Nice facililty. Pool is nice. Dockside pumpout is handy. Bathrooms are not a 10 but I've seen worse. Very walkable to lots of restaurants, shopping and a water park a block away.
