Escape, relax, and unwind at one of the finest marinas on the Hudson River. Set in a breathtakingly beautiful area of the Hudson Valley, Half Moon Bay Marina boasts unparalleled views combined with deep water and a safe, secure environment for you and your boat.
Conveniently located on the east shore of the Hudson River only 25 miles north of New York City and about 12 miles south of Bear Mountain and West Point, Half Moon Bay Marina is the ideal home port for varied boating trips. The adjacent Croton Point Park, with its sheltered cove and sandy beaches, provides a perfect spot for swimming. Shopping and many great, and inexpensive restaurants are within a short 1/4 mile walking distance.
ATTENTION AGLCA MEMBERS: We do offer dockage discounts for AGLCA members. The discount will be applied by marina staff upon confirmation of your reservation request, even though it will not show in the original pricing quote.
Great experience and great location. Dockmaster Steve was a pleasure. From helping with the landing to giving great info for places to get good food a short walk away we could not have asked for more. This is a great place to spend the night or the season. Looking forward to spending more time here. Eric
Amazing location - adorable little town and some great restaurants nearby. Check out Flame, Tavern at Croton and TapHouse at Croton. The dam / waterfall is worth a visit as it’s a nice hike and very scenic. Amenities at the marina were on point. We had a great stay.
Great marina. Well protected, comfortable floating docks. Restrooms clean & in good repair. Nice facilities - pool, sauna, exercise room (closed due to covid & change of season). Walked to town (about 15 minutes). Found Duncan Doughnuts (good coffee) and some nice restaurants. Steve, dock master was amazing. We called for transient dock reservation about half hour out while coming down Hudson. He texted marina map with our slip highlighted in yellow, photos of our dock & surrounding landmarks. We would definitely stay again.
Had a lovely two night stay at half Moon Bay Marina. Slips, docs, and facilities are well-maintained. Steve was very welcoming and responsive. He immediately provided his cell phone if we needed any additional information and helped with local knowledge. He Even recommended an excellent Greek restaurant within walking distance. Many dining options within walking distance of Marina which is a big bonus. Keep up the good work Steve.
Helpful and friendly staff, beautiful surroundings on the Hudson River. We visited to see the Jack O'Lantern Blaze in Croton on Hudson - highly recommended if you're here around Halloween.
Great marina. Steve and team there are extremely helpful and really went out of their way to accommodate our 3 boat group.
Great location!!! Easy trip from NYC. Convenient to transportation, provisions, and many of Hudson Valleys’ treasures (Bear Mt, Sleepy Hollow, numerous parks. We stayed a week to soak it all in. Marina is well protected from wakes, safe, and quiet. Steve and Margaret were welcoming and quite helpful. We’ll be back
Stayed for 3 nights and loved the Marina and location. Steve was the best and looking forward to visiting again.
Stayed here for a week in September 2020. Great place to stop when traveling the Hudson River. Easy access to rental car, groceries and restaurants. Train station is 1.5 miles. Pretty walk or you can call local taxi for around $7 one way. Steve was so helpful and accommodating. He checked in regularly with us. We needed a part delivered for the boat that he accepted for us. Highly recommend staying here.
We loved this marina so much we decided to stay twice in 1 trip. Steve was helpful and welcoming as was his assistant upon our 2nd night. The marina is quiet and protected . There is a lovely waterfront path for a little exercise . We ate at a Greek place and an Italian place walking distance from the marina. I have no hesitation recommending this marina
This is a great place. The services and amenities are first-rate, they really treated me well here.
Great harbor master who was very helpful, extremely friendly and went out of his way to make sure we knew the area. Located next to great restaurants, grocery store, pharmacy, rental car and train station. Super location!
Steve is fantastic, and he works very hard to ensure that you receive excellent service. Professional and conscientious, he goes the extra mile to make your stay perfect. (He even offered to drive us to see the Croton Dam!) Good stores nearby for provisioning, and a number of restaurants. We really liked Piato Greek Kitchen- service and food were great. This will definitely be our stopover point on the Hudson in the future.
Great stop on our way South aboard our 34 foot sailboat. Steve the manager went above and beyond to help us with arrival and during our stay. We were assigned an easy access slip. This modern facility is well kept and well positioned for visiting the village nearby. We will stop in again.
Nice clean facility, Steve couldn’t do enough to try and please us. Had a great time. We will be back
Steve is the best Great views All is convenient Perfect stopover up the hudson
To be honest, this was one of the best marinas we have been to. It’s very quiet and scenic. We went biking to Croton Point Park and barbecued off the deck of our boat at night. Also, we took a scenic boat ride up the Hudson River past West Point Academy, etc. It was great!! Steve, the dock master, was so very helpful too. He was always available for any questions we had. It’s our first time from Long Island up this far, and we will definitely be coming again!!
absolutely AWESOME!!! Highly recommend this Marina, whether it’s a first/last stop, or a week(end) long stay while on the Hudson. Marina is well maintained and includes all the amenities you could want with wifi and an amazing dog walking trail right along the river. The marina staff and Steve are simply the best, and go beyond out of their way to ensure everything you could need was attended to, and more. In short we were making plans to come back before we left the slip. HIGHLY recommend this marina to anyone (sail or power) looking for a great place to stay! Steve, we can’t say enough good things about Half Moon Bay!!
Whether you are purchasing a dockominium for your forever boat home, spending the season, or just coming in for a few days. Half Moon Bay Marina is the place to be in the Hudson. Great location, great docks, amazing staff. My new boat home 👍🏼
This marinas is beautiful for just sitting on your boat while you watch the sunset. Steve who over sees the marinas is truly a remarkable person, always available nd ready to help at any time. During the storm Steve made sure all boats were tightly roped up. This boat master truly knows his craft.
We enjoyed our stay @ Half Moon Bay recently. Steve the Harbor Master was there to catch our lines when we arrived. Steve attentiveness was above and beyond what you see @ most marinas! Steve was able to help us secure a rental car during our stay. The pumpout was handy. Power & water were great. The Marina was situated in a beautiful spot on the Hudson. Very convenient to parks, shopping & restaurants. Our visit coincided with tropical storm Isaias. Another reviewer wrote there were waves inside the marina...this is not true! We understand that reviewer has been asked to leave several marinas In the area and he was VERY rude to me personally. We fared just fine with Steve checking in on us from time to time through out the storm. Love this marina and will definitely return!
Beautiful marina, good location and very friendly and welcoming dock master
Saved our boat during Hurricane Isaias. Great marina with very Deep water (9 feet at Low Tide), with superb floating docks and amazing sea wall protection. We stayed for a week to shelter from Hurricane Isaias and it was the best decision. The marina never lost power the entire time and the water within the marina remained calm. Steve, the dock master provides excellent service for dock tenants, and visiting yachtsmen. The docks are extremely well maintained and the wifi is at a very fast speed to allow for streaming. Great variety of local restaurants in the nice town, within a very short walk. We will be back in the fall!
I am perplexed by an earlier review. Until this year, I’ve kept my boat in Newport, RI, so I can be a harsh critic. But I’m very happy at HMB where I have experienced nothing but friendliness, fairness, and high functioning services. I thank the earlier reviewer for reminding me that high winds create waves. I’ll have to ask Steve to fix that. Maybe he can build a dome. Friends’ boats kept elsewhere snapped dock lines and sustained lots of canvas damage. As far as I can see, nobody at Half Moon Bay sustained any serious damage. I’ll credit their location and giant sea wall. My WiFi works well, especially considering that it’s shared by many. My pricing is exactly what I was quoted when I called. If you want no waves and perfect WiFi, it sounds like a backyard pool might be a better option than a boat. The power to review directly to a business’ audience is one of the few great characteristics of the internet. Let’s all try to be fair and realistic.
Best marina on the Hudson River. Great marina experience. Very clean. Excellent WiFi and restaurants deliver quickly to boat slips.
PROTECTION FROM WAVES: It was Tropical Storm time. When wind rotated they were 2-3 feet waves INSIDE the marina. If you seek refuge AVOID this place. Better protection in the 2 marinas in Osining, near by. DEPTH: At a regular low tide is 7 feet in docks D, 6 feet or less in A,B,C. Not as advertised. SLIP finger was full of dove poop and feathers. Imposible to step on. Also is full of green and black mold. They cleaned some and I finished cleaning. Mold still there. WIFI: At 07.00 AM their high speed wifi showed (google test) 0.56 Mbps upload. Disconected after that. Bad or non existent. PRICING:They tried to charge $2.85/ft plus electricity. Active Captain said $2.40. I was told the add was old (2 weeks!) and the right price was in dockwa. It was, but not 2.85 but $2.40 after discounts offered by the marina. Felt that Marina tried to cheat me. No discounts offered for Active Captain or repeat customer.Left a bad taste.
Steve was so helpful and friendly! Emmitt didn't even work there, yet he rushed to help us tie up. This marina has one of the most scenic views ever.
Best spot in the area. Excellent communication from Steve who provided marina maps and a video to make the arrival very easy. Quick cab ride or walk to restaurants. Will definitely stay again.
Beautiful spot. No current. Easy in and out of the slip. Dockmaster Steve was very helpful. We rode our bikes into town, had an excellent lunch, and found beautiful produce at Apple Farm. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Half Moon Marina
Very accommodating and friendly
Steve sent us a marina map marked with our slip so we were completely prepared to dock when we arrived. Fenders on the proper side and all dock lines ready. He recommended places of interest and places to eat. Had a great time ; he was a great host. Loved it and wished all marinas would text a map showing slip assignment.
We originally planned to anchor just North of Crompton point on Saturday night June 27th. However a generator breakdown the night before prompted us to contact the Marina in transit to ask if they had a mechanic who could help us. Steve Plotkin, the marina dock master, was SUPER HELPFUL in putting us in touch with a mechanic read to work on the generator Sunday morning; Steve also offered us and directed us to a perfect transient slip ($2.40/foot), helped us with our docking lines, short power, etc. The Marina itself is decent sized (170+ slips) And docking behind its protective wave wall was very easy. It restrooms were very clean, but contained only one shower; I'd hate to wait for the only shower during the busy season. Sadly, the Marina does not give transient boaters access to its swimming pool; that was disappointing, for sure. Steve was very friendly add very eager to serve but was busier than a one armed paperhanger from the moment we arrived through the moment we left. Hopefully the Marina would be more appropriately staffed during the busy season. All in all we had a very pleasant stay and can recommend this Marina to anyone.
It was a great stay. Steve the dockmaster was extremely helpful and accommodating. Would definitely return to this marina in a heartbeat!
Thumbs up to Dock master Steve, who was impressively attentive. He gave us allot of tips with Restaurants and surrounding attractions! We travelled 14 hrs. (97 miles) in order to get to this well protected Marina along the Hudson River. Nice bike ride to provision, and really enjoyed the surrenady of the beautiful Croxton Point Park!
Steve who runs the marina is very attentive and helpful. We were just looking for a quick one night trip to start off the year. This is a great spot for a scenic trip to a quiet town on the Hudson. Plenty of take out restaurants nearby (walking distance). We didn’t get the opportunity to check out facilities. Hoping to gather some friends with boats to join us on a return trip when weather warms a bit. Next time we’ll cab it to Croton Dam and take the long walk to Croton Point Park.
This was our first trip up the Hudson River. Our original plan was to travel to Albany and back but we decided to cut the second half of our trip up the Hudson short and instead spend five days at Half Moon Bay Maine. It was the absolute best decision we made as it is beautiful here! Staff is excellent, area is perfect for walks with our three dogs and lots of places to explore and provision. The marina is super quiet and the views are stellar. We highly recommend staying here to simply decompress and relax. We will be back!
Very clean marina with beautiful views. Steve, the dockmaster, was so helpful and courteous. We will definitely come back again!
Steve is great and the place is beautiful! We will be back for sure.
Great location. Secure dockage and welcoming staff
Steve called to make sure he would meet me at the dock. We had an awesome stay here. No rocking, No Noise! Great restaurant nearby completed our Hudson journey. Thanks again Steve for everything......
We called ahead to let Steve know we were going to be early. He was very apologetic because he wasn't going to be there to assist us. We didn't have long to wait and he arrived and directed us to our slip. There is a breakwater to reduce the wave action. The marina is quiet except for the geese that our dog ran off. Steve was very helpful, giving us the lay of the land. The facilities were very nice. We walked to the local shopping plaza for ice cream and water. There is no grocery store there, but we had sufficient supplies. I would definitely stay there again and take advantage of the car rental or train into NYC.
Our stay at Half Moon Bay Marina this past weekend was fabulous. We didn't notice any movement on our boat despite a fairly strong northwest wind. Many new finger piers and unlike most marinas on our two week trip, Half moon marina is very clean and well taken care of. Had a fantastic dinner at the seafood restaurant, Ocean House and the Tavern next door is awesome too. Steve got us a luxury car from Enterprise dealer next door, for $35. Great place to linger and explore the Hudson Valley. Thanks steve and crew!
If you want to visit Croton-on-Hudson but don't anchor, there's no choice but HMBM. Steve does what he can as dock master but facilities are limited: one shower each in men's and women's rooms; same mildewed curtain as 3 months ago. Condo association does not allow boaters to use pool. Piers not well maintained; some areas covered in guano. Reasonable shelter from east and south winds but if there's any 'west' in the wind, it's not comfortable.
We stopped at Half Moon both on our way up to Lake Chaplain and on our return voyage down the Hudson. The nearby train station and rental car office made it a convenient location to visit nearby friends and NYC. The marina is located in a bay with a wave wall that limits wind and wave action from the river. This is an important feature not enjoyed by many marinas along the river. Shoreside facilities are shared with the private workout room but the heads and showers are limited but clean. The walking and biking trail along the shore provides an opportunity to get some exercise. We found Steve, the manager, to be very helpful and made he very effort to make certain we had a nice stay at this marina.
Very resort-like marina, and lots of choices in restaurants to walk to. All are a block or two away so easy walk for sure. Ocean House for seafood or the Tavern bar and pub next door are our favorite so far. Love the the new produce market place that opened next door called Apple Farm. WiFi is very strong here. Clean restrooms and nice, wide, full finger docks. Half Moon Bay Marina also got us a half off Enterprise Rental Car to tour West Point and the Culinary Institute. Thank you Steve & staff!
when cruising north or south on the Hudson River this is our preferred stopover. Steve, the Dockmaster could not be more helpful . Only thing preventing a five star is the lack of amenities. Good job Steve.
Good stop. Dockmaster Steve is helpful with docking and recommendations. Docks are being re-decked. Shower (only one in men's room) is clean.
We enjoyed our stay at Half Moon Bay Marina. We took a train into the city and spent some time there before returning to Half Moon Bay. Steve was very accommodating and we were confident our boat was secure and safe while we were away. The only down side was the wakes from the boat traffic kept us rocking and rolling until late in the evening. The night traffic was far less so no rocking and rolling through the night.
Awesome Lovely spot!
Overall we were pleased with Half Moon Bay. We were there for 10 days as we left our boat to go home for a few days. Steve the dock master is very good. Attentive, friendly, always willing to lend a hand. The docks are currently under repair and some are a bit rough, but that's being addressed. The seawall works pretty well except in very strong winds. We experienced 20 knot North Winds, that really rocked the docks. One note, the advertised 1/2 mile to town, is closer to a mile. However the new Apple Market is very good. Enterprise car rental was great, will pick you up, and gave us a great deal on a car. The only other comment is that even with staying 10 days, we didn't get a weekly rate, just the discounted AGLCA daily rate. (See Update below!) A good alternative to NYC rates, and does have good access. (Note that the train station is about 1.5 mile walk or a quick Uber ride. ) We would stay at Half Moon Bay again. UPDATE: The dockmaster reached out and adjusted the billing to a weekly rate, it was an oversight, and he was very gracious! I am changing the rating to 5 stars due to the excellent customer service!
Great location and very convenient to rental car, groceries and restaurants. Steve does a great job to assist in any way possible. Not the calmest waters sometimes - not sure why.
Stopped here on our way up the Hudson. Steve directed us to the dock and gave us a lot of help getting in. The docks are wooden floating docks, bathrooms and showers are also nice. It's protected from the East, North and West. If there's a south wind, you may rock a bit but not bad. I would definitely stay here again.
Nice stay. Steve was great and helpful.
Clean, well maintained marina. Dockmaster Steve was very helpful even after hours- sending me txt picture of layout and slip for my nighttime arrival
This is the third time I’ve stayed at Half Moon Bay and I’m sure I’ll be back on my next trip on the Hudson. The head and showers are always clean and in good condition. For the most part, the piers are in good shape as well. On both of the last two times I’ve visited, the manager and I conversed before hand to discuss which slip we’d tie up in and to ensure there was assistance available when docking. One real benefit of this marina is the proximity to a good grocery store as well as the MetroNorth station for trips into New York City. Plus - there’s ice cream within walking distance. As I said, I’ll be back.
Great stop close to good restaurant Memphis Maes. Steve Dockmaster was most helpful even with a after hours arrival.
Great stop as it is central to Croton Gorge, BEAR mountain State PARK AND AN EASY TRAIN RIDE TO THE CITY. well kept marina, friendly boaters.
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.
Friendly and helpful dockmaster. No amenities on site-easy 1/2 mile walk to restaurants Would be nice if pool was open to transients
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!
Had a great experience. Steve was very accommodating .The location makes for easy travels to NYC.
Steve went WAY beyond great service during our stay. HIghly recommend and will stay there again. Thumbs up - way up!
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.
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.
Very relaxed and very convenient to amenities. If only the dock master could have staged a jazz set. 👍. Lol
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!
Good Location. They need to work more at staying ahead of the geese poop.
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.
What a great place ! Clean , Friendly peaceful.Steve does nothing but go out of his way to make sure your stay is nothing but perfect Make a point of staying there
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.
Marina is secure and clean. Not much in the way of amenities. Steve is extremely accommodating so he gets an extra star.
