Liberty Landing Marina is located on the lower Hudson River; this well established marina provides an array of services for boaters in the area. Reservations for slips are easily procured from their website. Any finish or mechanical work is welcomed and no job is too big or too small. This is also where you catch Statue Cruises to go see Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty! Parking fees are about $5.00 a day, if not coming by sea.
Writer’s note: The Liberty House Restaurant is close to Liberty State Park and the perfect place to have brunch! Try their famous Double Banana Pancakes, Eggs Benedict or Lobster Crepes. This one of a kind New Jersey restaurant and banquet facility is surrounded by water on three sides, affording stunning views of Manhattan and Lady Liberty, herself.

Writer's note: Island Beach State Park is close by and with over 10 miles of sandy shoreline along the bay; this is a sun tanner’s paradise! Rolling sand dunes, tidal marshes and home to hundreds of species of plants and wildlife, this is a ‘not to miss’ spot. The southernmost tip of the state park borders the inlet and offers spectacular views of Barnegat Lighthouse.


Main One Marina is perfectly located, about ½ mile from the ocean and Main One has been serving the boating community in New Jersey’s Shark River Inlet Area since 1978.
