Ton Travel Lift

There’s never a reason to be bored at the Marina at Southwinds, as the inviting town of Forked River lies only 2 1/2 miles away complete with shopping centers, bars, restaurants, and local flavor in terms of arts and crafts shops. But you really don’t have to go anywhere to find yourself in awe-inspiring activity.

The Forked River itself is a picturesque scene of tannic waters surrounded by cedar pines, ripe for a day of exploring, and the 10 minute ride to Barnegat Bay offers tons of fishing, crabbing and lounging opportunities, namely at the aforementioned Tice’s Shoal (N39 50.41/W74 06.281) on the backside of Island Beach State Park.

A full line of user-friendly amenities is included for marina visitors, including laundry, and six bathhouses (three for men and three for women). Transient boats are welcome at the Marina at Southwinds, although it’s advised that you call ahead to reserve a slip, which can accommodate vessels up to 60 feet at a rate of $3.00 per foot. The Marina can be reached on VHF Channel 17.

If you are trailering a boat, the site offers a launch ramp with ample rig parking, a rarity in the Garden State. There’s also a 25 ton travel lift if you need to haul your boat for repair, along with a n on-site mechanical department to help you. The Marina at Southwinds is open year round. We also offer winterization with dry and wet storage for the long winter months.

If you want to grab something to eat after those lazy days of lounging around, the Marina sits just steps away from the The Waterfront. The restaurant is actually the closest dock and dine location to the Barnegat Inlet, and features a deck bar during the summer season with live entertainment.
