They say 24hr self serve fuel! Thank God we got there 10 minutes before they close because you can only get 20 gallons after closing. We fueled up luckily and the attendant told us the gate combination to get back on the dock. Well the gate is broken and doesn't stop people from just opening up the gate and coming on the dock. We were washing the boat after arriving and a guy asked us if he could show our boat to his stepson! Ugh
Then to make matters worse no-one answers their phone or calls you back. We couldn't get in to the bathrooms or showers. We went into the casino and they gave us a code for the door and it didn't work! We text the fuke dock attendant and never heard from him! I will NEVER go back there again!

The marina put is in a slip with broken and missing cleats and where our power cord wouldn't reach - having to go across two other slips. They didn't help us with lines during docking (on a very windy day) and we're unresponsive on the radio when we asked to move spots. They never shared the dock code, where the facilities were or anything else. Oh, and the bathrooms were gross once we found them.

Even with Covid restrictions, we had a awesome time at the Golden Nugget Marina. I highly recommend dinner at Vic & Anthony's Chef Tim Hamill is one of the best chefs around.

Very nice place to escape the bad weather.

This Marina was one of our favorite destinations up until about 2 years ago. The Marina has been poorly managed and under staffed our last 2 trips, but this trip was clearly the worst. Management has one person working on a Saturday to manage the phones, dock security (Daytime only. There is a phone number to call after hours), and assisting incoming boats! 10 STARS TO AUSTIN WHO WAS GREAT but clearly overworked! I recently met a 2020 season slip holder who has left the marina for another marina due to being understaffed all season. They told me there was no staff or security all season and the dockside pump out service ended because the equipment was vandalized and the marina never repaired or replaced it. If Golden Nugget plans on maintaining a boat trade, they better rethink cutting the staff to a ridiculous level and not maintaining services that are expected at a resort marina! ***This is not a COVID-19 situation*** They have been going downhill long before COVID-19 arrived!

Great Facility perfect location helpful staff
by gziztvvgsx49jlsrdh_t on Oct 20, 2020
Convenient, reasonably priced, very poor customer service (in fact, practically none).
by captainfred on Oct 16, 2020
No one knew where to put us. Not very experienced Dockmaster. They sent us to a slip that had a boat in it already. We had to manage moving our 70’ vessel many times until they put us on the face dock. Dockmaster was inexperience with timing up the vessel and was rude to the crew.
by y2kaehler on Oct 12, 2020
Great experience. Great services.
by debiw on Oct 05, 2020
Great slips on a linear dock E. I don’t see the wifi coming up on my phone. Women’s bathroom/showers good. Men’s not so good. Most everything is closed for the season. Still looking for ice this morning.
by art20c on Sep 30, 2020
Very pleasant stay. Docks were clean and in good condition.
by lawmann on Sep 30, 2020
a tired municipal facility with no staff. Easy to get in and out but nothing special other than its location.
by realexa on Sep 27, 2020
Okay marina, but absolutely non-responsive. Called several times before arrival to try to book No answer and never returned my message. They accepted my Dockwa reservation and took my money, but never responded on 65 (their designated haling channel) after repeated hails or 16. I ended up just pulling into the first open spot. Never saw or heard from any representative. I guess you can stay there for free now since no one seems to care or respond.
by mjsolley on Sep 24, 2020
Clean your docks. Disgusting
by jamesf on Sep 14, 2020
When we called the dock master he didn't answer us,we did not know where to dock the boat so we just docked,then no one was available to give us the code to the gate to get back to our boat. Kind of left us to fend for ourselves not happy at all
by lindajackson on Sep 03, 2020
We never received a slip assignment and we got no response to phone calls, emails or marine radio hails. Abandoned the plan. Did not stay. Was very frustrating and disappointing and we have no intention of paying any bill they try to send.
by jrmboat on Aug 19, 2020
Docks are beginning to show their age but overall a nice place to stay with a helpful staff.
by jeff08098 on Aug 14, 2020
Great marina and staff!
by 333 on Aug 09, 2020
The dock itself was ok. Only complaint is they had weeds growing out of the docks.... For the amount of money they charge per night you would at least expect clean bathrooms and showers.... They were absolutely disgusting..... I felt like I needed a shower just for walking through the door.....
by captaintomwiecek on Jul 31, 2020
Unable to communicate with dock office. No slip assignment, dock in poor condition, power wasn’t working on pedestals, years ago was the best.
by meehan on Jul 29, 2020
The floating dock and bright lights were nice. Preventive steps against the Covid rates a 2 out of ten.
by steveberry16 on Jul 28, 2020
Austin the Dockmaster was absolutely amazing. So helpful and always available to take questions regarding dockage, approach to the marina.

Great place to spend a wknd
by si on Jul 01, 2020
Overall nice couple of days here. Understandably understaffed due to Covid situation. Restrooms/showers needed more attention with cleaning. Dockside bar and restaurant were very accommodating and food was excellent.
by lcurr33908 on Jun 30, 2020
Horrible!waited outside 20 minutes trying to raise someone on VHF & phone
No answer. Finally got kid who told us where to dock but no help given. Looks like a ghost town. Nowhere to go, docks needs replacing,bathrooms need updating. Office is a far walk and WiFi never worked.
by endeavortug on Jun 30, 2020
Fishy aroma in the marina deterred us from sitting on the back deck. Nothing open due to COVID but not the marinas fault. Been here twice in the past, good service.
by mrbarnum on Jun 23, 2020
Nice, quiet stay at the marina while the casino is closed.
by ohanatime on Jun 17, 2020
had no issue in the time of covid-19. I was able to call ahead and get the scoop which is essential during these difficult time with closures and partial openings. no attendants and no staff except by phone but everything was in good repair.... the bathrooms could have been a bit cleaner and the showers also.
by melvynmiller on Jun 07, 2020
Good service. Good power
by owoobly on May 28, 2020
In covid times. It was good. No dock hands. The town is closed but the floating docks were in good repair and the electric worked. Only stayed one night on our journey north.
by highflier on Apr 08, 2020
Took my money. 138$. I understand the circumstances. No workers at all. Took fuul price. I called radio ch 65. No contact. Calked phone. No answer. Calked another number. Talked to girl in Houston. She said electricity works. Water works. Showers work. It took 3 different slips to find electricity that worked. Water did work. Showers were locked. Docks were disgusting with bird droppings and shells. I want to be refunded for $138.00. I understand the circumstances however then you shouldnt taje my money. It was full price for totally disgusting conditions. Call me at 860-985-8482
by capnrob on Nov 11, 2019
I requested a slip close to the facilities. Upon arrival I was told to "take any slip on H dock". I couldn't tell how many slips were open and I hadn't seen a dock attendant yet, I took what appeared to be the first open. Thid dock is equal distance from either of facilities. I was told to come to the dock office to sign in once I was secured. They closed at 5. I walked up without shower gear to make their time. When I asked what to sign he said Dockwa had covered it and handed me a slip of paper with #s of gates, shower, phone to office and wifi that didn't work. There was no place to sit in the shower/head room. I'm handicapped but not in a wheelchair. The handicap shower stall had no seat (fold down) to shower nor one to dress. I couldn't tie my shoes until I saw a cart in the hall used by maintenance. I single hand my boat. I could have gone down the row of slips on the chance of finding one closer but the sun was setting, I'd been running all day and having an assigned slip with an attendant waiting would have been more like I would have appreciated.
by donna7509 on Oct 27, 2019
The 50 amp power supply at our slip would not hold our power cord. Had to use a neighboring slip. The WiFi was terrible, even when we moved closer to the office.
by tombruno on Oct 21, 2019
Docks need cleaning. Slippery in the rain
by tikibob on Oct 15, 2019
No one there when we arrived. 5 boats holding in harbor, hailing marina to no avail. We finally just docked in an available slip and hoped we didn’t get asked to leave in the night! The other boats went elsewhere. Also, no one to pump out our holding tank. If we had been sent a slip number thru Dockwa we would have been more comfortable docking without the dock master being present
by rmjersey50 on Sep 30, 2019
It would have been 4 stars but they were no dock hands to help when I got to slip.
by cbrobinson on Sep 26, 2019
Marina was easy to access. Nice restaurant on site. Showers were a very long walk away from our dock.
by stevehillwig on Sep 23, 2019
The dockhands were friendly and helpful, the amenities were great and the restrooms and showers were clean.
by spencerwbailey on Sep 22, 2019
I’ve been stopping at this marina for several years. I must say that I was very disappointed in the condition of the docks and the bird poop was all over the docks next to and near where they had me park. I spent an hour cleaning the dock as best I could before my guests arrived but bird poop still got tracked onto my boat and the docks stink terribly. I will not stay there again if that’s the condition they keep the docks at $3/foot.
by xfnbyvsdripdnnuqku3u on Sep 16, 2019
Great spot had a good time will return
by trapanese on Sep 03, 2019
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.
by ajuttner on Aug 31, 2019
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!
by szenzen on Aug 31, 2019
Enjoyed our stay. Nice docks and deck has bands. Pool bartender at H2O was awesome.
by cestark on Aug 23, 2019
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
by 9412689917 on Aug 18, 2019
We could not get in they were booked. We sailed past them and went to Cape May. I was told by the Dock master I would not be charged.
by seatea on Aug 18, 2019
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.
by jdclarkesq on Aug 11, 2019
Marina office closes early but otherwise a good stay at a nice facility.
by oneeyedogcrew on Aug 06, 2019
Nice marina and staff. Has a Boatus discount for both fuel and dockage. The Jitty picks up from the Golden Nugget so getting to the Boardwalk was easy.

by t380fisher on Jul 22, 2019
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.
by doreen310 on Jul 16, 2019

Nice docks. Good dock hands. A mile walk to showers and laundry.
by ggreen1095 on Jun 09, 2019
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.
by captainmichael on Jun 07, 2019
The dock hand was on waiting at our assigned dock to assist us with docking. He gladly secured our boat, hooked up the electric and asked if we needed anything else.
by boatownerac on Jun 04, 2019
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.
by kskarchitect on May 29, 2019
Loved coming down here so much for the weekend I decided to stay for the summer! Office and dock hands were great. Marina could use a little maintenance/upgrading but overall fine. Love the music at the "Deck" and adjacently to the casino.
by henriclerk on May 19, 2019
Great location and activities. But forget the service, had to dock ourselves at the gas station and at the dirty docks.
Overpriced for a do everything yourself marina .
by chillmate on Nov 19, 2018
ZERO STATS Totally disappointing hours and services posted were totally inaccurate
Water fuel and pump out not available 24 hours as posted and open hours not adjusted to reflect change
by pvgas on Nov 16, 2018
Not much nearby. Surface of wooden docks poorly maintained.
by reviewoutlaw on Oct 23, 2018
It was nice to have a Casino so close to the dock, the Gas dock does not work at all wasted 30 min trying to get it working. No one was a the Marina office so had to ask some locals for the codes to access bathrooms, Bathrooms could use a “Deep” cleaning
by sowwanin on Oct 04, 2018
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.
by madea42 on Sep 20, 2018
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.
by kevin126 on Sep 04, 2018
They cleaned up the marina since the last owner ran it. But there wasnt enough staff for a holiday weekend. When we checked in, we werent provided any details on events going on at the casino.

by crossoncc on Jul 16, 2018
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.
by gettinlost on Jun 30, 2018
Marina staff were very pleasant.
Quite surprised to have the crew from the Mega Yachts sitting on the finger dock texting at midnight.
by dgheusinkveld on Jun 11, 2018
No help with dockage - facility understaffed given the number of transients. WiFi unusable. On the plus side, great protection from storm conditions; great dining options; easy bike access to board walk.
by dammeyers on Jun 08, 2018
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.
On behalf of Golden Nugget Farley State Marina I would like to apologize for your experience, your most recent stay. We are currently working on improving our WiFi coverage in the marina. Thank you for bring the washer and dryer situation to our attention we have contacted the vendor to make the necessary repairs. Please feel free to contact me personally to discuss any other concerns you may have.
by saltyparrot285 on Apr 30, 2018
Special thanks to Jesse Lewison, Marina Supervisor and Nicholas LaRotonda, Director of Marina Operations, for taking the time to help us with our upcoming reservations. We dropped by the office unannounced and they both stopped what they were doing to help us out. We have always had great experiences during our visits. Deck hands are happy and very helpful. It's always a great time!

It's not yet the season, so the docks were not very clean, and the fuel dock was closed. Also, the marina is a bit isolated, everything is far from it.
Good Afternoon Capt,
On behalf of the Golden Nugget Farley Marina I would like to apologize for your most recent experience. Please feel free to contact me personally on your next visit and I will ensure it will be a much better experience.
by capthappyacy72 on Apr 03, 2018
Just visited the marina while heading north for the summer from FL! Noticed alot of improvements taking place!! Restrooms being renovated as well as a new bulk head and walk way being completed. Very friendly staff and knowledgeable of the area! Had a excellent meal at Chart House. Looking forward to coming down to stay a few nights and listen to the bands on the Deck!
by pbarbaruolo on Nov 02, 2017
Dock was covered with goose and bird poop. Very slippery and dirty and dangerous.
Not cool when docking your yacht and having to walk in that crap.
by peterasche on Oct 20, 2017
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.
by spirit388 on Oct 04, 2017
The marina and the office manager was nice. However, the fuel dock attendant was not attentive or helpful.
by dougjarrett on Oct 03, 2017
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.
Good afternoon Capt I apologize for your negative experience. We have switched to our winter hours of 9 to 5 this may be the reason no one was available to assist you please contact me personally at 609-442-1079 to rectify this situation again we apologize

Easy entry. Professional dock hands. Great entertainment on the Deck.
by kimbrown on Jul 31, 2017
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.

by tonylmiller on Jun 17, 2017
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.
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.

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.
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!
