Sheltered Cove Marina encompasses over 22 acres, located near the exit of beautiful Tuckerton Creek, leading into Little Egg Harbor bay at the south end of Barnegat Bay. SCM is located only 3 ½ miles from Little Egg Inlet and ocean access. The inlet was recently dredged and now has ample draft at low tide to accommodate even the largest boats. The protected marina location affords close ocean access, with no bridges and very small no wake zone, as well as miles of back bay areas providing beautiful shore habit and wildlife areas. This close proximity provides ample opportunities for deep sea fishing, back bay fishing, crabbing, clamming, kayaking, or just cruising and exploring.

The convenient location of SCM provides fine restaurants within a short walking distance, shopping within a mile, the historic Tuckerton Seaport, the new 18-hole Sea Oaks golf course and Atlantic City are all easily accessible.

The marina contains 250 protected deep water slips, accommodating boats from 17’ to 50’, with most slips on new floating docks and 30A or 50A electric service available. All slips have fresh water, with phone and TV hookups available. The fully tiled, immaculate restrooms and showers are protected by keypad locks, so our customers have 24-hour access and safety.
