Reviews for New York Chelsea Pier Marina
Great place to pick up guests from NYC, 2015-08-18
Captain: , Ft. Lauderdale (42)

We really enjoyed the ease of being able to pick up family and friends who live on the UWS of Manhattan. A bit too surgey for our taste if we had to overnight there, but we're guessing the rolling is primarily from water ferries and not too hurrendous from the wash of the Hudson at night.

This is our preferred marina in Manhattan given all of the amenities in one location as well as all the cool places only a short walk away. Our recent stay had us arrive to pick up guests and then go out for an all day boat tour of Manhattan from the water. They put us on the South side which was relatively stress free once you stop looking at the submerged pilings to your right. I had plenty of room at the end to spin around and dock my 63 foot vessel. The dockhand was very good at handling the lines. It really was easy in and out. The only negative thing to say has nothing to do with the marina and that is the roll from ferry wakes. It is part of the Manhattan experience so enjoy the motion.

Chelsea Piers is a great place to stay if you want to swing the golf club, bowl or just enjoy the sights. There is current and you need to be careful on the south side entrance as there are submerged pilings so you do not have as much space as you think. It is easy to cater a party while at Chelsea and convenient parking for guests. Ferry wakes do give you a real roll.

Great Place to Stay in the Big Apple, 2012-11-06
Captain: , Pilots Point (466)

Stayed there for three days this past Sept ('12) in a 38 ft. sailboat. Never received arrival directiions like this: "Travel North up the Hudson then turn right at the golf driving range". These were remarkably good directions though the darkened sea-level pilings immediately to the right of their fairway scared me silly.

Marina is rolly but not much of a chore and is well located so that anyplace in Manhattan is easily reachable by cab or nearby subway. The Highline is also a few blocks away, a must see. Hearing golf balls whizzing thru the air the first thing in the morning was surreal but not unpleasant. There is a security guardhouse but I wouldn't put much faith in them...never felt unsafe though.

All in all, much better located than North Cove and in much better shape than the Boat Basin. Only downside was the lack of shower facilities nearby.

Nice Marina To Stay For A Night, 2012-09-04

As previous posts stated, watch your starboard side on the way in. Dockmaster is very helpful with setting up your lines and bumpers as the wakes from the ferries and water taxis will toss you around a bit. Can beat the access to Manhattan!!

Ferries create wakes. I do tie here to pick up my friends for day sails.
Current runs through the marina and make it very tricky.

NYC rocks and rolls all night and so do the docks at Chelsea Piers, literally. With that said Surfside3- Chelsea Piers is still the best place to dock and explore the island of Manhattan.

Only if you want short term access to dock attractions at very high price, 2007-02-18
