Setting — This rustic marina is located just south of the Barnegat Inlet. It is the first marina upon approaching Long Beach Island. Set in the beautiful, unspoiled beach town of Barnegat Light, the marina has the USCG for its neighbor, along with natural marshland & a condominium complex to its north. Blue & gray buildings dot the marina landscape, accompanied with a view of the red & white historic landmark, Barnegat Lighthouse.

Marina Notes — Primarily home to commercial fishermen, overnight transients are welcome (about 2-3 slips). Fully stocked ships' store with all needs for the commercial fisherman. Older, wooden, fixed docks scattered with remnants of fishing voyages. Boat-US towboat (494-0989) on premises. Pump-out no longer on-site. Go across harbor to High Bar Harbor. On-site are sport fishing charters: Angler Management 215-783-2181, Lady Fran 226-9968, Mary M III 978-0673 for larger parties, & a dive boat, Dina Dee 971-9097. Also LBI Parasail 361-6100, seasonal. Bathhouse: in main building, useable with one shower.

Notable — Wonderful old Victorian houses, great beaches, and a quiet, "barefoot" ambiance mark this relatively isolated beach community - it's nine miles south to the Rte 72 Causeway Bridge to the mainland (or two miles across by water). A little less than half a mile north is Barnegat Lighthouse (known as Old Barney), circa 1859, the second tallest in the U.S.; it's also the centerpiece of a 32 acre state park. Climb the 217 steps to the top, then visit the original Fresnel lens at the nearby Barnegat Light Historical Museum (Park:10am-10pm, daily, Memorial Day-September, closes at 4pm Nov-Apr; Lighthouse: 9am-4:30 and some evenings May-Oct, week-ends only Nov-Apr $1). Have a picnic or hike one of the trails (lighthouse closed in '03 for renovation, promised re-opening is '04). Three blocks south of the marina is Viking Village, a charming collection of beach shacks creating a shore version of a mini-mall.
