About


South Jersey Marina has been providing first-class accommodations and services for more than 20 years. Slipholders and transients find everything they need to make their boating experience productive and pleasurable. The marina's 75 slips all feature high-profile, state-of-the-art floating piers. Without the experience, care and dedication of its staff, a marina is only a place to tie up a boat. At South Jersey Marina, we have an experienced staff which understands boats and boaters, and is committed to the well-being of both. Dockside services include local weather & fishing reports and the coordination of boat repairs through our sister facility: Canyon Club Resort Marina, also located on Cape May Harbor. Sparkling clean showers and rest rooms, an on-site laundry plus nearby restaurants and well-stocked food markets, all combine to make life on your boat a treat instead of a test of endurance.

The communication and facilities at South Jersey were both fabulous! Great walking distance to a few different levels of restaurants. We’re deep in the off-season so understandably the shuttles weren’t running and the only breakfast spot around the corner was closed for the season but was definitely a great layover on our trip. The dock master was awesome communicating with us via Dockwa even when we had to postpone a day due to significant weather. Fueling was available at our slip, the bathhouse showers were amazing and clean and we even had the option to do a load of laundry using the credit card operated machines. Excited to visit again during peak season to really see all Cape May has to offer!

The staff at SJM were really great. Facilities were well done. If I could make one suggestion it would be to have the shuttle into town run later. I understand that requires staffing but perhaps after 7 have one of the younger staff do it for tips. i gladly would have given a great tip instead of waiting for a paying an Uber. We certainly will go back.

South Jersey Marina was able to get us a slip for one night. Had no idea there was a fishing tournament and all the marinas were full. Dockage was a little tough - no floating docks, only finger piers. Staff was very good. I know it's Cape May, but the prices are very high.

Love South Jersey Marina. Convenience to Cape May, the staff and management are terrific, great facilities. Comments; they moved us mid stay and I was told that I would be given a free night for that inconvenience. Nobody followed up so I don't know if I received that credit or not. The abundance of jelly fish clogged and shut down our A/C two times over two days. Not their fault. The marina had a ready answer and advice to fix. There are only three marinas I want to stay in NJ (other then my home port) and two of them are the Canyon Club and South Jersey Marina.

We were very happy that South Jersey Marina was open to transients. The docks and fuel were open. Restrooms, showers, restaurant and Marina office were closed due to Covid19. The Staff was available to help with lines, ice and fuel with all precautions taken. Quick walk to restaurants that were open for takeout. Looking forward to our next trip back to South Jersey Marina hopefully in better times.

The crew of the Cerulean stayed at South Jersey Marina for two days in August. The rest rooms/showers were top of the line -- including a stack of paper bath mats for use by each person. The ships store was much better than most -- with a separate shop for ladies wear -- and accessories. We did not try the restaurant as it was a breakfast and lunch affair only (no dinner). We did eat at both theLObster HOuse (Our number one choice) and Lucky Bone -- both were very crowded the nights we were there (a Monday and Tuesday) -- Lobster HOuse definitely had the better bar and food. While in our slip, we had several problems with our power pole -- I marked one star off as we felt although the initial response was good, after that the subsequent attempts to fix the pole took too long and were not communicated very well to us -- and we were on the ship performing maintenance (i.e. not far away and we needed power for our maintenance). For larger ships (50 feet or more) going into or out of this marina -- the fairways are narrow and there are several docked boats that stick well out into the fairway.

We scheduled a stop here on our way south. The weather was bad but South Jersey Marina reached out to us and worked with us on a very late arrival. That was very considerate and appreciated.

Beautiful stop - facilities are very clean. The dockhands - especially Matt - are super friendly and helpful. There was some communication breakdown on the way in with the office contact and we ended up having to pivot our 20 ton Hans Christian a full 180 degrees to back into the long dock, it a tight space with current (and no bow thruster) Matt was awesome. When you get your dock assignment -our recommendation is to ask more questions than necessary because "behind the large power yacht" ... in our case, meant on the other side of the dock. Otherwise, a lovely place.

We have an excellent reception. There were two men to help us with the lines which worked out well. The reception at the office was excellent. Amy provided us with all the marina information required plus acted as a tour guide to Cape May. The was a WiFi repeater nearby so the reception was excellent. The bathroom and showers were the nicest I have ever seen in a marina. A minivan shuttle is available to drive people downtown, 1.2mi, as well as to other town of Cape May destinations.Our departure was delayed and the dock master was able to find us a place to stay an additional night in spite of the marina being fully booked. The "deck hands" were all very helpful. This is an excellent place to stay.
