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 640 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.


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.

This Marina seems run-down compared to other marinas with this dockage rate. We entered at sunset and found it difficult to distinguish the various ways to get to the many marinas. It would be a good choice for those who want to spend some time in the area though.

The marina and the office manager was nice. However, the fuel dock attendant was not attentive or helpful.

No help docking, in fact never saw anyone while we were there. Docks covered with bird droppings. No one have us a gate code, so had to climb over the gate.

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.

5 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 for the first time scattered about. We were able to get some move a bit, so we were in closer proximity of one another. The electric was not working when we pulled in, as repairs requiring the dock boards to be pulled up as well were in progress. The floating dock are old, when wet become slippery beyond maintained surfaces. Many boards are weathered, uneven. The docks need some care. The dock boys were great. The music awesome. The pool is way overcrowded.

Marina can accommodate larger boats, dock hands where helpful. The docks could use some updating very dated. Not much to do for kids, a good stop over point.

No one available on arrival. Though there's a huge staff on hand for the restaurant and casino, no one knew the code to get back through the gate to return to the boat after finding the marina office closed, even security personnel. Not friendly to the average guy.

Marina Response:
Capt. on behalf of the Golden Nugget I would like to apologize for you inconvenience during your recent stay. Please feel free to contact me personally to arrange any future reservations. Nick LaRotonda Dockmaster 609-442-1079

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. Currently our fuel dock is being totally revamped with new 24hr self-service pumps we are hope to have our fuel dock open to boaters Memorial Day Weekend. Thank you for your review and we hope to see you again soon! Nick LaRotonda Dockmaster
