Great stop close to good restaurant Memphis Maes. Steve Dockmaster was most helpful even with a after hours arrival.

My wife, Pat, and I have been to Half Moon Bay Marina on several occasions on our 48’ motor yacht, Reflection, and our most recent visit was in July of 2018. We have always found the marina to be an excellent place to stop and the marina manager, Steve Plotkin, to be extremely helpful in any way he can. Half Moon Bay is a very safe and well - protected marina with floating docks and an excellent view of the Hudson River. It lies on the eastern shore of the River in Haverstraw Bay over 3 miles away from the main ship channel, thus eliminating the rolling from wakes that can be experienced at many of the marinas in the New York City area. Some of its other features are: It is in close proximity of the Croton-Harmon Metro North train station where you can take a very scenic 45-minute train ride to Grand Central Terminal in New York City. Car rentals are in walking distance of the marina for those boaters who may want to visit West Point, the Culinary Institute of America, or other historical homes on the Hudson. Those boaters who enjoy hiking can also visit the nearby Croton Gorge Park at the base of the New Croton Dam, Falls, and Fountain. There are many restaurants also within walking distance of the marina. It has well-maintained wide floating docks with long finger piers. The manager has a list of independent mechanics that are available, in case your boat requires repairs. We highly recommend Half Moon Bay Marina as a wonderful stop on the Hudson River.

I rented a slip for a weekend. Very nice marina! Perfectly situated on the Hudson. Beautiful view. Right next to the Croton Point Beach. Very calm water especially for the Hudson. Plenty of places to eat nearby. The manager/dockmaster, Steve, couldn't have been more helpful and attentive when needed. I'll surely return next year.

Lots of amenities at Half Moon Bay Marina! WiFi was very fast. This is an excellent marina with great views, direct access to walking paths and parks on either side of this award winning marina. Walking distance from the train station. Half Moon Bay is very safe, secure and protected with deep water. Received a 50% Off Rental Car at Enterprise. All of these criteria have become next to impossible to find on the Hudson. The management as well as staff at Half Moon Bay Marina, (led by Dockmaster Steve Plotkin ) is exceptional ! Highly recommend.

Coming up the Hudson, we were looking for a anchorage or marina that would allow us a close connection with the Trains to NY. Calling Half Moon Bay, Steve made it clear his marina would be a better choice than any anchorage! We took his word and stayed there 3 days. This allowed us a short visit via train to our children in PA. The marina was just the right size for our needs and everything was clean and easy. Steve was great and I think he would have been our personal tour guide if he wasn't the only one working when we were at the marina. Steve was always on the go in the marina helping all the boaters and residence there with their needs and requests. Great guy! Thanks Steve!

Dockmaster, Steve Plotkin, is terrific. He has bent over backwards to make our trip to Half Moon Bay Marina very enjoyable. He is quick to respond to any questions. (my favorite amenity so far is we had our laundry picked up at boat, cost $1/lb. and was delivered back to boat in less than 2 hours!) Try Half Moon Bay!

Came in after hours. The marina manager Steve was very helpful in getting us tied up. We've come to Half Moon Bay several times before and were always pleased with the facility and the service. Short walk to BBQ, fresh donut, pizza, and a diner. NB - strong wind from the west results in a lot of rocking and rolling in the marina despite the sea wall - pay special attention to lines and fenders under these conditions.

Marina Response:
Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately we experienced a severe 45+ mph wind storm that started early in the morning during your stay. That strong a wind is very rare in mid November. We always love having you both here, and we have already begun adding a lot more attenuation to our sea wall. Many improvements to our seawall will be continuing over the winter and into the early spring of 2018.

Very protected from a major wind storm. Nicest staff with incredible customer service. Outstanding Shop Rite supermarket is a close by walk and has absolutely anything and everything you could want in the way of food, provisions, and even had quite an extensive wine answer section. Nice and inexpensive restaurants abound all over the town which is a block or two walk from the marina.

Half Moon Bay Marina is not to be missed! Plenty of deep water all over the approach as well as inside the marina. Steve Plotkin, their manager, couldn't have been more pleasant or friendlier. Very funny gentleman as well. We enjoyed many excursions from the marina as a starting base. Enterprise Rent a Car is next door and gave us 50% off on our rental. We checked out the awesome sights at the Croton Dam, which is only 2.7 miles from the marina. Don't miss going to West Point and the Culinary Insitute also. Both have outstanding campuses to tour. Endless presidential estates around the marina too, such as the Rockefeller and FDR estates. TeaTown has really gorgeous nature preserve trails, but since we stayed for 9 days, we were able to check out the phenonenal walking trails that started at Half Moon Bay Marina , and went straight into the adjacent Croton Point Park. Be sure to check out the Ocean House for seafood, and also the A&S deli for all sorts of delicious and fresh Italian and Mediterranean foods. (1/4 mile from marina). The Shop Rite supermarket is Huge and has everything - including a giant wine and beer section.

Outstanding views. Super clean facility with almost all brand new docks for transient boaters. Docks were all immaculately clean during the entire week we were at Half Moon Bay. Marina is in an ideal location-- an easy and short train ride to and from NYC. Croton Harmon Metro North train station is next door to marina, although you can't hear any of the trains from the marina. And, it's only a quick walk. We also visited West Point military Academy's gorgeous grounds, with a 50% off car from the Enterprise rent-a-car agency, that's located next door to marina. Highly recommend Half moon bay marina to anyone traveling the Hudson!

Steve will be your best friend and is very helpful and working very hard at making this a wonderful Marina. We were tied up along the sea wall and it was bouncy, but no complaints. Beautiful dog friendly walking areas and a great pizza shop just down from the marina.

Half Moon Bay Marina is by far the best marina we've been to on the Hudson, by a long shot! Stayed a week there, and we're still not sure what the agenda of the prior reviewer was! Very short walk to the A&S deli for groceries, and Shop Rite supermarket isn't a bad walk. We found Steve and his assistant Ricky to be so helpful and offered outstanding customer service. Our Boat US discount was applied. Many laundry options are there. There is a great self serve laundramat next door, and at least 4 or 5 great, and very inexpensive dry cleaners who offer free pickup & delivery of your clothes. The top Zagat rated Ocean House Seafood restaurant is only a very quick stroll along an amazingly scenic riverwalk from the marina. So many other great restaurants within a half mile such as EATalia, Raga ( Indian restaurant), or Cappriccios II. Even the Croton Diner has terrific food. One of our favs though is the Tavern, which is an enjoyable 1/4 mile walk from the marina along the new bicycle/ dog walking greenway pathway.

Dockmaster is very nice but strung me along until I actually docked before he would tell me what the rate would be for a weeks' stay. No discounts for Boat US, etc. Didn't believe it fair to others who wouldn't qualify. In the end, we paid for 6 days and got 1 free. Last day he really discounted the dockage to entice us to stay 8 nights. Very far to walk for groceries. No loaner bikes. Convenient to the train if you have a car. No laundry. Pool not available to the Marina, which was a disappointment.

Great marina - lots of amenities -Beautiful Swimming Pool - We rented a car from Enterprise (just outside of their driveway) and were able to tour the sites from West Pt. to the Culinary Institute. They also were able to rent us bicycles from a great cycle shop nearby. -- Definitely a very clean, well run place. We found the docks to be very stable, and were glad to finally find a very Deep Water marina. Great that the high speed Wi-Fi and Cable TV were included in price. There is a staggering array of restaurants to check out on the way. Steve, the dockmaster as well as their dockhands were all extremely helpful. Will definitely return on a future trip visiting the Hudson. Next time we'll take advantage of the huge train station a mile away. There's a free jitney service or taxis that can take you to the train station- Friends have told us that it's a quick 40 minute express train into midtown Manhattan or you can also try going north for 15 minutes to check out Coldspring.
