Boaters Choice 2020


The Marina at Southwinds offers a bountiful array of goods and services to attend to all of your needs. Slip-holders enjoy the perks of "membership" discounts off of ship store merchandise, fuel and the Waterfront Restaurant next door. Gas and Diesel are available from Valvtect premium fuels, which have additives that will provide protection for your engine.

There's NEVER a reason to be bored at the Marina at Southwinds, as the inviting town of Forked River lies only 2 1/2 miles away complete with shopping centers, bars, restaurants, and local flavor in terms of arts and crafts shops. But you really don't have to go anywhere to find yourself in awe-inspiring activity. The Forked River itself is a picturesque scene of tannic waters surrounded by cedar pines, ripe for a day of exploring, and the 10 minute ride to Barnegat Bay offers tons of fishing, crabbing and lounging opportunities, namely at the aforementioned Tice's Shoal (N39 50.41/W74 06.281) on the backside of Island Beach State Park.

Transient Boaters may check-in anytime between 6:30 am to 4 pm.

Southwinds Marina is BY FAR the best Marina in the area! The office staff is extremely friendly and the service department is outstanding. We always look forward to our weekends at Southwinds. I mean where else can you go that serves breakfast every weekend AND there is always fresh coffee!
