Fantastic place. Absolutely stunning view over Manhattan. Super calm water. Very well sorted store. Highly recommended as a destination for a cruise in NE. Hint. Time it and go through Harlem river to get there. The most tranquil place on Manhattan.

Donovans is a great place to stop. The staff if very nice and helpful. The regulars are welcoming and the place is clean and nice. We like it as starting point for upstate trips since we trailer our little Albin trawler and they have a great ramp and good parking. And best of all, they have a very nice restaurant on site, Boathouse Grill, with a great patio overlooking the Hudson and nicely prepared food. Don’t miss out on the sweet and hot calamari with the fancy sweet drop fruits.

Really nice location inside the very busy NJ harbor. Can be a bit rocky at times when tugs are going by but the upside is the free marine show when a swarm of tugs turns a large container ship around right in front of you. We loved it. Restrooms and showers are very nice. The docks are new and the property is shielded by high end apartments and is gated. The owner is new and have not yet figured out how to run it so its hard to communicate with them by phone or Dockwa but I would assume that will resolve itself soon. They have recently hired an office manager that was super helpful and kind. I highly recommended the place if you like to have a different experience than the “Safe Harbor” /Resort style marinas. This place is mainly a fisherman marina and the seasonal people we met were friendly and helpful. There are good places to eat within $10 uber fees. Getting an uber to Manhattan is $50-75 depending on time. Make sure you are not waiting to the last minute to book and keep texting until you get a response to make sure they are ready for you when you arrive.

Very nice and clean marina/boat yard. We were coming in late and they arranged for a reflective cone marker for our spot. Very nice and clean bathrooms/showers. Would absolutely go back next time we are in the area.

Very nice marina! So glad we came. Friendly staff. Immaculate premises and the location right in historic Essex makes it extra special. Hope to be back soon!
