Half moon Bay Marina was amazing. We not only were met by Steve one of the nicest dock master but also very informative. Explained everthing in the area and how best to get there. The Marina itself was impeccable and we look forward to going back next season. Thank you from My Reality
Thank you David. Absolute pleasure meeting you guys. Have a great fall season.

Absolutely our favorite marina stay in our 2 year loop!... The floating docks are in great condition and are very stable. Excellent sea wall protection and reliable wifi speed. Well kept bathrooms. Town is a very short walk 1/4 mile to half mile, and the digital and paper welcome packets Steve and his staff gave us are filled with endless choices of stellar restaurants like the Greek place Piato. The Ocean House for seafood and Tavern at Croton landing are both amazing as well. Deep water and excellent wifi. Great deals on Enterprise Rental Car which is next door and plenty of free parking at the marina. Highly recommend and superb staff who are a cut above the rest with being helpful, friendly and will make you feel like you're their only guest. The Croton Gorge Dam is absolutely stunning and so relaxing. Must see!

It was a good location close to town. Steve was a very pleasant Dockmaster. The facilities as a little basic

Fantastic three days at Half Moon Bay Marina. Manager/Dockmaster Steve was very attentive to our needs and graciously offered discounts as weather kept us off the Hudson. Thanks Steve for all the great tips on places to see in lively Croton-on-the-Hudson, as well as throughput the mid-Hudson River Valley.

Staff was over the top wonderful and considerate!
Felt super comfortable reaching out if needed but honestly all information was provided :)
We were meant to stay 1 night and stayed 3!

Great stay on the Hudson. Steve was very helpful and accomodating and sent detailed instructions (including pictures) about our slip location before we got to the marina so we were able to set up in advance. Nice floating docks, protected from most of the river wakes and waves by a large fixed attenuator wall. Closer to everything than any of the other options in the area (train station/tracks are close, but it's surprisingly quiet). The welcome packet was the most comprehensive and informative of any we've received and answered all of our questions before we could ask them. Free self-serve pumpout too. No laundry facilities but the laundry service in town picked up, washed, dried, folded, and delivered for a very reasonable price. A great stay, we'll definitely be back.
Thank you Daz! It was our pleasure meeting you! Hope you have a great rest of the season!

With Hurricane Lee brewing in the Atlantic, we were welcomed by the friendly dock master at Half Moon. Not only did he provide us a port in the storm, but he greeted us with helpful maps and a useful list of restaurants, trails, and other local amenities. It’s a very pretty marina - well worth a visit.

Most protected marina in the area for storms or hurricanes. Surrounded by land on three sides, and a superb sea wall/ wave attenuator.
Very quiet, but within short walking distance of the Metro North trains (Croton Harmon Station) We found it very easy to obtain Uber or taxis at the marina.
The only marina with enough depth 8.5' MLW in the area. Grocery stores, endless restaurants and other stores within easy walking distance. Their digital welcome packet and maps are the best we've seen in any marina in our 23 years of boating!
Steve, the manager and his terrific staff ensured we had everything we needed.

Steve and Sebastian were spectacular hosts and Croton-on-Hudson is a lovely spot! I'll be back on my next trip on the Hudson for sure. :-)

Steve, the Dockmaster was just incredible. He made a special effort to help us with Wi-Fi issues, came in early to help us depart because of strong wind. Marina location so convenient to great Greek restaurants and enterprise. Definite a 5+

The Marina was an excellent stop for us on our way to the Erie Canal. The facilities were clean and the staff was very pleasant. We had some problems with the internet service and it was corrected in a reasonable amount of time.
by Michael M. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2023
Steve was great and the most attentive Dockmaster we have met. He makes the stay quite enjoyable and is very knowledgeable on local eateries and tourist attractions.

Docks are in good shape. Steve did an excellent job of providing specific info on our slip, gave us a map of the area with places to go, etc. My only complaint is that the restroom facilities are a long way away. If course, that's not something that could br changed. But. It was so hot we didnt want to walk there, so i cant comment on the facilities.
We didn't get to point out that there is a special shortcut to the restrooms that is quite a short walk. Apologies. Hope you can visit again in the future. Have a wonderful summer!

The dockmaster, Steve, was extremely helpful in assuring we had a space to fit our needs and was able to accommodate a longer stay than we originally planned. He met us at the dock and let us know about all the conveniences and places to see nearby. We had great Italian food at Pronto in a casual atmosphere for reasonable prices within a short walk of the marina. We enjoyed visiting charming Croton-on-Hudson, especially the Good Shephard Chapel and the Croton Dam.
Thank you David. We really enjoyed meeting you both, and are so happy you enjoyed! Have a great summer!

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!
UPDATE: 7/5/2023 - Stayed at HMBM again this week for 3 days. Great stay overall. Same great service from Steve and Sebastian. This time we brought our friends on Indigo. Would suggest fixing the stairs to the office and bathrooms. Quite dangerous especially at night!
Thanks for the nice review. I just edited the amount to reflect the discount now applied. Very sorry for oversight!! *Although the Apple Farm store does seem farther walk than a half mile, it’s truly just a half mile in total from the flagpole up top in upper parking lot. Thanks again and was a pleasure meeting you guys!!. Steve

Half Moon Bay
Lots of loopers go here. There is no sign for the marina, so we passed by it going toward another marina to the north. I'm assuming because there are condos overlooking the marina, they don't want a sign out? It was difficult.
They have a self-pumpout on the north side of the marina. It wasn't working, but Sebastian did a wonderful job unclogging the problem.
The slip was fine - floating docks. We did have some turbulence, which is surprising given the distance from the main Hudson channel. There are a lot of steps to climb and the ramp from the docks to the mainland is very steep, FYI. Steve is great in trying to accommodate you. Note there is no fuel and no pool. Bathroom is 2-3? stalls and 1 shower. Doesn't seem like enough for all these boats.
Thank you for the review. We should have pointed out that there is a very easy walkway and no need to use steps. We'll put you in a very protected slip next time. We did have a very abnormally strong wind storm while you were here. Usually the slips are very protected. But, in the extreme storm during which you were here, sadly we couldn't prevent all the turbulence. Hope you'll visit again.

Excellent place to dock . Great service , good protection inside the marina . We came already the three times to stay the night at the marina
by Steve S. - Verified user on Jul 01, 2023
We had a great but too short of a stay at Half Moon Bay. The dock master Steve bent over backwards to find us a slip for the night. Sebastain did a wonderful job helping us tie up, hook up and watered. The info packet told us everything needed to know about the area, restaurants and shopping. Don't miss this great stop on the Hudson.
