You will always hear me talking about how much I love Summertime, and how much I love the beach and the boardwalk (all year round). It’s one of the main reasons that I have made the Jersey Shore my home for the last 25 years or so.

If you know me personally, you know how much I love boating as soon as the weather gets nice. I do talk a lot about it on the radio as well.  I’m a big fan of meeting up with my friends at Tices Shoal for a relaxing day floating on the water. It’s a great way to beat the summer heat.

Another great thing about boating on the Jersey Shore is all the awesome restaurants and bars to get to by boat.
Nothing like jumping on the boat and heading out to get something to eat and to grab a few beverages.  Best of all…You’ll avoid the Jersey Shore traffic

Pretty much all the bars and restaurants on the water are open all year round and have nightly entertainment every night during the Summer where you will find an awesome band or DJ.

    Nothing better than family-owned and operated! The Fieramosca family has been operating Mariners Marina in Barnegat since 1975, but they’ve always wanted to own a restaurant. Shortly after Superstorm Sandy, after a neighboring marina was severely damaged, the family purchased the property which has now become Sun Harbor Seafood & Grill. Intending to serve the freshest seafood, it’s nearly impossible to find something on the menu you would not enjoy.
