Cape May, NJ - Access to diverse waterways sets our Cape May Marina location apart.

Head out into the ocean to catch what’s running, cruise up the Delaware River to the Maurice River, cross the Bay and circle the lighthouses, stay inshore and boat the back bays on endless miles of waterways, and cruise the many islands and sounds. The intracoastal waterway provides safe and leisurely boating all the way to Atlantic City and beyond! With so many places to go, you’ll have a new experience every trip!

Here's How the Club Works

We Take Care of It All...Including the Boats

We’ve taken care to select a variety of quality boats. And we always keep them clean and maintained. We also take care of the storage, insurance and repairs. So you can just focus on the fun!

Pay a 1x Entry Fee and Monthly Dues

Just pay a 1x entry fee and choose one of our membership plans. Boat every day of the year. Or just weekdays. Some clubs may even have 3 and 6 month plans. And you can change your plan as the need arises.

Get Unlimited Training from Licensed Captains

Your safety is our No. 1 concern. So we give all our members unlimited training with USCG-certified captains. And if you wish to boat in a new location, they’ll show you the waterways.

Take Any Boat Out as Often as You Wish

Reserve a boat by phone or online. Then go fishing, tubing or head to a restaurant with friends. When you’re done, just bring the boat back and pay for the fuel. We take care of everything else!

Boat Ownership vs. Joining the Club

Boat ownership consists of much more than enjoying the water: cleaning, storage, maintenance and repairs, not to mention depreciation. The hidden costs of ownership can quickly add up, as can the time that is spent not enjoying the boat.
