Perfect. Great Dockmaster. Called me at 9pm to clarify my mooring, approach etc.

Joel, the launch operator, is conscientious and very helpful. Great club, beautiful location, behind sea wall, with view of the Verrazano and Manhattan.

Sufficient stay, good morning field but put right next to ferry entrance, would be great if we were further in the mooring field.

Launch. Capt Ron & Capt Joel are the best! My family & friends were well-treated! I will be back soon. The harbor is well protected behind the breakwater.

Friendly people, and the launch service was excellent. The shower facility could use some updating and some cleaning. Nice town with good restaurants. We will definitely be back! Thank you

Ok close to the tender but also the charter boats

by Michael C. - Verified user on Sep 16, 2023
They went way over and above to help me get on the mooring alone at night with 25 knot gusts. The launch driver pulled up and transferred crew to my boat to help pick up the mooring while I steered. Love this place!

Great spot with a wonderfully organized mooring area. Friendly employees, prompt, pleasant tender service. Close to Sandy Hook and its sights and beaches. Very enjoyable stay. Will be back next summer.

Moorings full on Labor Day weekend, but for a reduced rate we were able to anchor just past the moorings and behind the breakwater, and had full use of the launch and the shore amenities. Very helpful phone call to arrange this and for guidance on where to anchor and go as this was our first time here. Would come back again!

These folks are awesome! The launch captains are so nice and helpful, I will always stop here on my way north & south. Plus, the launch runs to 11pm...unheard of!

Had confirmed reservation but arrived 3pm and no mooring were available, Expect rebate on $65. Mooring fee from dockwa.
Marina Response:
Sorry we could not get you on a mooring last weekend. Since you are a member of an Inter-Harbor yacht club your fee was canceled. Labor day weekend is the busiest weekend of the year and moorings are reserved very early. Your request for a mooring was made on the day of your arrival and a mooring was impossible to assign, as all the available moorings were booked weeks in advance. We also had a long list of boaters on a waitlist. The reason we didn't just decline your request was once it is declined you would have had to start all over with another reservation if you decided to use the anchorage and free launch service which is offered as part of our decline reason message. We deemed this an inconvenience to the boater so we confirmed your reservation as an anchorage stay with free launch service. Your "assignment" information i.e. "Anchorage" is always on your reservation confirmation page that is emailed to you when a reservation is accepted. The anchorage is well protected, and the weekend weather was quite settled. We successfully serviced numerous visitors from the anchorage that weekend. We look forward to your next trip. Whenever possible, it's always best to book in advance as this is a popular stopover for transients. We did receive many 5 star reviews for that day. Here are a few of them for your review. ------------------------------------------------------- These folks are awesome!

About Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club

Welcome to the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club!

Since its founding in 1953, the mission of the AHYC has been to attract and bring together dedicated individuals who share a mutual respect for the sea, and to encourage and advance all aspects of boating, yacht racing, and on-water activities, including offering a welcome and safe haven to yachtsmen and yachtswomen who visit the harbor.

Located within the protected Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, AHYC maintains the reputation of being a convenient and popular stopover for boaters - cruising or in transit - as we are close to Sandy Hook and New York Harbor. We offer secure moorings and launch service to transiting sailboats, up to 50' in length, from mid-May to early November.

Our facilities include the moorings and launch service and a second story club house with spectacular views of Sandy Hook Bay and the New York City skyline. All our mooring guests are invited to visit our club, meet our members, enjoy a meal and cocktail, and partake in the friendship that is the AHYC. The inviting bar is well stocked, and the galley offers varied food menus.

Shower and bathroom facilities are provided by the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor, not the AHYC. Access keys are available from the Launch Drivers during normal operating hours. Check our website, www.ahyc.net, for the daily launch schedule.

Visitors should be aware that we can not accommodate power vessels of any length or sailboats greater than 50' in length on our moorings due to Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor policy; dock slips for these vessels may be obtained by contacting the harbor office on Ch 09. Dockwa reservations are for transient moorings only.
