Grest mooring, no rolling, taxi service was awesome and goes till 11:30pm. Mooring had pick up sticks so very easy to moor

People are friendly and helpful, good restaurant at the marina. Everything you need is a short distance from the marina. Is very easy to get in and out. The marina a mooring fields are protected from waves and wins. I'll definitely stop there if in that area again.

Great mooring. Loved the launch service and the captains were very friendly and knowledgeable. We will stay again. Will not disappoint.

Well protected harbor, friendly, efficient launch service.

This is a great place to stop. We fueled at the Municipal Marina (with unfortunately a rather unhelpful young man), then picked up a mooring ball at Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club. This is a huge mooring field, but we were very comfortable on U2 during strong NW winds. The Launch service is stellar, and this is a rare instance where we did not need to put our dinghy in the water. We were able to stay on the mooring ball a little longer than checkout time as long as we kept our radio on 9 and monitored for the next guest. The mooring fee is now $55 (Active Captain still shows $50), but well worth it with the shower facilities and the launch service.

Excellent launch service. Friendly club. Bathrooms (run by the town) are barely OK.

Great staff secure moorings and a simple launching point for heading south

by cdahl303 on Oct 30, 2018
Easy in and out -good strong mooring. we didn’t have much interaction with anyone except t get a mooring ball assignment - staff was very helpful in that regard. Was not easy to figure out where to tie up our dinghy

This is a tough one - we really like it here and while we normally anchor out, we’ll usually take a mooring for at least a few nights whenever we pass through. Good supermarket, liquor stores, hardware store (propane), Library, post office & restaurants all under a mile away! Great dinghy dock, great launch service and exceptional launch captains - friendly, courteous & professional! So why 3 stars? The showers are abysmal! Now, I normally shower aboard Rocinante, but decided to check them out. Again, Abysmal! This is a yacht club, not a public park... Please upgrade your facilities to match the rest of your exceptional service!
Marina Response:
Thanks for the positive comments but, as far as the showers/rest rooms, as pointed out in our summary page, those facilities are the property of the town harbor marina, not the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club. Our total involvement with the facilities is handing out keys to transients in the mooring field so they wont have to go to the harbor office. AHYC Launch Committee

by billonmarinas on Oct 13, 2018
Facilities available by key only while launch operates and are poorly laid out. Showers on the hallway to the commodes, rediculous! Yacht Club has extended a single row string of moorings 200 yards into what used to be anchorage. Message received, $50 per night mooring makes this an as needed stop only. Otherwise a great place for dinner and a few brews. Why do towns have to ruin it for travelers.

by sowwanin on Oct 03, 2018
Great mooring with excellent bridle set-up and chafe protection. Launch service was quick and courteous. Easy walk to great supermarket to provision and lots of restaurant choices.

by madea42 on Sep 20, 2018
Good mooring field, solid tackle and well protected. Launch folks are excellent. Shower facilities are clean. No WiFi. We stay again If passing through.

by mw1gehehhcglftd8j3se on Sep 03, 2018
Rhonda the bartender was awesome. The club also had complimentary sandwiches and snacks since they couldn’t serve dinner. We always enjoy AHYC!

by jdmilnes2 on Aug 27, 2018
Everything was fine. Very nice marina.

by lvskipper on Jul 23, 2018
Were giving moorings quickly and have a great launch service that runs late. Didn't use the bathroom this trip but have in the past and they are adequate and air conditioned.

by eas4 on Jul 22, 2018
Our stay was awesome and the launch driver/check in person was very friendly. One important note: If searching for Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club on Dockwa, it does not appear, under that name, initials, or a search of the area. Strangely after the launch driver told us that they used Dockwa, I searched under "Highlands" and by chance found it??

by aderobertis on Jul 16, 2018
Great marina for mooring a sailboat, fast Launch service, and friendly. Beautiful stone sea wall to keep your boat well protected.

by rnuzzolo on Jul 09, 2018
We had a great stay @ Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club. Excellent tender service and staff. Club has a great view of the harbor and NYC. Plenty of restaurants and shops near by and supermarket a 15 minute walk away on route 36. Rich

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 yachtswoman 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 save and 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 sky line. 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 Municipal Harbor, not the AHYC; access keys are available from the Launch Drivers during normal operating hours. Check our website,, 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.
