About


The Senator Frank S. Farley State Marina is a public facility owned by the New Jersey Division of Parks and Forestry managed by the Golden Nugget. This marina in Atlantic City offers 630 floating slips and has the capability of docking yachts up to 300 feet in length. The marina is approximately 44 statute miles offshore from Cape May and 60 statute miles offshore from Brielle, NJ - Manasquan Inlet. The harbor is well protected with little current and no wakes; dock attendants are available to assist boaters as needed. The marina offers connections for water, cable, telephone, and electric service up to 100 amps. The fuel dock offers 24hr self service for both gas and diesel and has high speed pumps for gas and diesel and has a pump out station. Bathrooms, private showers, and laundry facilities are available to registered marina guests. Also, enjoy access to our outdoor pool.

Approach


After entering the inlet, you’ll see a red buoy fairly close to shore. Keep the entrance buoy to starboard to enter the deep water canal. Farley State Marina is located just past the US Coast Guard Station on the starboard side. The basin is dredged to eight feet at mean low tide. For local weather and tide information from NOAA, tune to VHF Channel 2.
Minimum Approach Depth:9.0 Feet

Very good staff and clean facilities. Dock planking needs to be replaced (H dock)or at best power washed to remove dirt and mold that can be very slippery when wet. Overall, good experience.

The docks are in poor shape. There were nails sticking out of the rub rail on the finger dock that scratched the side of my boat. I have a Formula that has painted sides. It’s not just an easy gel coat repair. I filed a claim with the management. We will see how it goes!

The docks need some repair. weeds growing between the boards. Self service fuel is an issue. The pump says $100 max, but the computer will only give you $75. I needed $1000. Took 45 minutes for an attendant to get out to me and then told me about the high speed pumps. They should tell you then when you check in. Don't know if I would go there again

Disappointing. After returning from St. Michael's, Baltimore, Annapolis and Cape May, it was depressing to see the condition of Farley State Marina. No transient should be assigned to D dock unless they are warned in advance of the terrible condition of the dock. It was the first time on my 10 day trip that I decided to lock the boat before I went to dinner. The season long tenants treat the dock as their own space to keep their junk. You have to walk around boat owners that have gathered in their beach chairs to party. There are multiple boats that have obviously not moved all season. Admittedly I had asked to be near the near boat that I was traveling with. However, I should have been given a choice; be separated from my travel companions or be assigned to a dock that looked like a dump. My female guests told me their locker room was deplorable. In addition to how dirty it was, it appeared that a woman with several young misbehaving children, was living out of a camper and utilizing the ladies locker. If it wasn't for White House subs and the fact that I grew up on Absecon Island when the marina was far nicer, I would never stay at the marina. Farley, Liberty Landing, South Jersey Marina and the Canyon Club should be the premier destination NJ marinas. The one that comes no where close to the others is the Farley Marina.

A Great weekend get away. Austin (dock master) was very accommodating and placed us in an open slip near friends of ours that dock there for the summer. The deck hands were very nice and helped us locate our slip and get tied up and hooked up to water and power. The weekend was 100 degrees, so we didn't do to much outside but there is a real party/relaxing atmosphere. Bathrooms/showers are quite a walk away, but were very clean and secure. We'll definitely be back. And using Dockwa to arrange everything was very easy.

The docks were in very good condition. They were well protected and the dock hands were on the spot in helping getting into the slip. The showers and bathrooms were clean and convenient to the transient dock. The washers and dryers were not. It was a long walk to get to them and then only half of them worked at a time. Also, they were located in the men's and women's restrooms which meant unless you had both genders on board you could only use half of the machines. The restaurants at the Golden Nugget were very convenient, a bit over priced but then it is a casino. The jitney service was great making it possible to travel without any hassle. We also made use of Uber for grocery purchase. The Uber was only minutes away when we needed them.

The amenities of the Marina are excellent but control of the parking around the marina is a mess cars park in areas for boat owners. Cars that don't display a parking permit should be towed but security manager refused to enforce parking rules. Boat owners pay a large sum of money for their slip and parking privilege this is why I give three stars in two weeks. and then consider raising or lowering.

Our experience was less than great! The docks are in poor condition with protruding nails and loose power stantion. One water faucet was frozen shut. The dock attendant was a passive observer rather than helping to fend as we docked. This resulted in a scratch in our top sides from one of the protruding nails. If I can avoid it, I won’t be back.

Im not an Atl City kinda person, but setting that aside, sooo this marina if you can. Staff is non-existent. The guy at check-in was clueless. Dock conditions are hit and miss. Ours had rotted boards, popped nails and a loose cleat. Facilities are clean and suitable. But for $3/ ft, I expect more.

6 years we have been going to Fakefest, with about 7-9 boats and about 40+ people. This is the busiest weekend of the year according to the dock hands. THERE IS NEW MANAGEMENT. The location of our group was as expected, except for a large abandoned boat which separated our group, which has obviously been there for a very long time by our understanding. The floating docks are old, lots of splinters, loose boards and overall not maintained. The dock boys were great. We had an 80' Hatteras on the other side of the main dock, which was allowed and not corrected to winch up the craft so the entire main dock was raised up on the side of the Hatteras and was low on the other side, which made for the dock to be very uneven and rub the pilings continuously, making an annoying noise with every motion of the water from boat wakes. The music awesome. The pool at the Golden Nugget is way overcrowded.

Wifi was not available except in the office for office employees. One said we've had problems and another employee said we've had no complaints. One the two dryers out of order. No place to get quarters for laundry. Service people very aloof. Pool & hot tubs on 7th floor of hotel was awesome, but no place to change except in the bathrooms. Would not go back.

Nice docks but they sent me down the 30' and under fairway instead of the bigger one. Made for some really dicey handling in the breeze and then I had to move as I stuck out too far.... Showers are fine but predate the private dressing area era. Can get Jitney to boardwalk. Unless you gamble there isn't anything in walking distance. Casino restaurants (low end) were mediocre. Nice deck bar but was either too crowded with a too loud band or deserted as we had a front come through.

Was a little disappointed when I came in to the marina. It looks like they are under construction on the land portion of the marina. The fuel dock is closed until Memorial Day Weekend, which was unexpected. Unfortunately it is about the only game in town, so you have to suck it up and hope that get things sorted out soon.

Marina Response:
Capt. On behalf of the Golden Nugget Farley State Marina I would like to apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay with us, as we are under construction to improve our marina.

Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon! Nick LaRotonda Dockmaster
