Welcome to the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club. Situated in the Municipal Marina in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, the Yacht Club and mooring field are tucked in at the south end of Sandy Hook Bay, within easy sailing distance of New York Harbor and quick access to the Atlantic Ocean.
Our clubhouse is located above the Shore Casino. Sitting at our bar, one often is in awe of the spectacular views of the New York skyline. By day all lower Manhattan is visible with the Freedom Tower taking center stage. To the west is Staten Island and to the east is Coney Island and the Long Island shore. At night, the lights of the Verrazano Bridge are like a string of pearls spanning the entrance to New York Harbor.
The Municipal Harbor provides fuel, ice, showers, and pump-out. Along with a 50-ton travel-lift for emergency haul-out. All within easy walking distance to the Borough of Atlantic Highlands. The Borough itself has restaurants, theaters, a laundry, and super market, as well as a variety of interesting small shops and businesses. All these amenities make the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club a ‘must stop’ for visitors from around the world.
Our Yacht Club offers transient moorings for visiting sailboats. Reservations can be made on dockwa.com but are also available on a first come first served basis by contacting our launch operators on VHF channel 09 or by phone at 732-291-3232. Transient slips for power boats are available by contacting the Municipal Harbor at 732-291-1670 or hailing them on VHF Channel 09.

To our Members, I am honored that you have chosen me, once again, as your Commodore. As we celebrate our 66th year, my goal is to make our Club shine. All of us working together will provide interesting and exciting activities, fun events and friendships that can last a lifetime. I look forward to seeing you at the club,
Jeff McDaniel, Commodore 2019
