Exclusive Discount for The Jefferson Chronicle Readers

This summer, Bridge Marina is thrilled to welcome boating enthusiasts to the Sandy Hook Bay at its newest location in Highlands, New Jersey, where they are offering their signature Boating Club and daily boat rentals.

​Highlands, New Jersey is a great little beach town just across the bay from Sandy Hook and Gateway National Recreation Area. For those not familiar with the Sandy Hook Bay region, it is simply a beautiful area to explore and closer than you think. Less than 90 minutes door-to-door from Lake Hopatcong, boaters can explore the Sandy Hook Bay, Navesink River, Shrewsbury River and more and enjoy waterfront “dock and dine” opportunities, fantastic fishing and crabbing, gorgeous waterways, great sightseeing, and plenty of spots to simply drop anchor and just relax.

Gateway National Recreation Area at Sandy Hook is a highlight of the area and not to be missed; miles of paved biking and walking trails, multiple beach access points, plenty of history and tours, swimming and wildlife watching are just a few of the activities that can be enjoyed when you’re not on a boat. Don’t forget to check out historic Twin Lights Lighthouse and Hartshorne Woods, or pop over to the cute downtown of Atlantic Highlands or the beachfront town of Sea Bright; both small towns are a bike ride away from Highlands and offer plenty of things to do.

Fantastic and fun waterfront dining options are plentiful, from Highland’s traditional Bahr’s Landing to the newer Proving Ground waterfront restaurant. The Seafarer Tiki Bar is a fun, lively spot that’s located onsite at Bridge Marina’s new Highlands location as well.

Bridge Marina’s new Highlands Boating Club and Rentals offer daily rental of their signature, luxury triple pontoon boats featuring plush seating for up to ten passengers and fully-loaded boats. Bridge Marina’s Boating Club fleet is always equipped with top-notch Four Winns fiberglass boats and Starcraft high performance triple pontoon boats. At Bridge Marina’s new beach location, anglers will love the brand new Wellcraft center console fishing boat.

Bridge Marina’s daily boat rentals are perfect for guests who want to enjoy the boating experience for just the day, while Boating Club membership is designed for those who want to get out and enjoy boating a bit more often this summer. Both options offer endless opportunities to explore without the hassles or commitments of boat ownership.

Bridge Marina looks forward to welcoming Jefferson Township neighbors down to its newest location in Highlands, and is offering 20 percent off daily boat rentals for the entire month of August. Simply use coupon code JTCHRONICLE when making your reservation. Highlands Boating Club and Rentals is located at 1 Marina Bay Court, Highlands, NJ 07732.

If you have any questions about the area or what to do when you visit, feel free to reach out to info@bridgemarina.com; Bridge Marina will be glad to steer you in the right direction for a great day at the beach – on and off the water.
