Founded 65 years ago by Ernest Utsch, Sr. and Ernest Utsch, Jr., Utsch’s Marina is operated today by co-owners Ernie and Charles Utsch, who continue the tradition. Located at the east end of the Cape May Canal, Utsch’s Marina is home to the Utsch’s Marina Charter Fleet, offering various types of fishing trips to all. Want to fish on your own? Captain Fred of the Bait & Tackle Shop can get you “hooked up” with the right bait and equipment needed to catch your dinner for that day, setting you up with a modestly priced rod ‘n reel combo along with live bait including eels, minnows and frozen squid. Make sure you get some tips and pointers from Captain Fred before heading out onto the water! Have a boat? Pete, the Ship’s Store manager, will assist you in keeping your vessel in tip-top shape.
