The Tradition Continues at Utsch’s Marina


Celebrating 68 years, Utsch’s Marina continues to serve its customers in the traditional “down-home charm” of Southern New Jersey. Today, Ernie III and Charles continue their “hands-on” operation of the family business which was founded by their grandfather and father, Ernest Sr. and Jr., in 1951.

Utsch’s isn’t just home to its dedicated family of 300+ slip-holders; it also serves as a home base for other water activities. The Cape May Whale Watch & Research Center provides not only a fun experience but an educational one as well, following the migration and antics of our local whales and dolphins. East Coast Parasail lets you experience the island of Cape May “from above.” Or, “jet” around the Cape May Harbor and areas close by with jet ski rentals or jet boat trips.

Utsch’s Marina is also home to multiple charter boats, including Cape Queen Charters, Fishin’ Fever Sportfishing, Free Spirit Fishing, Full Ahead Sport Fishing, Legal Limits Charters, Reel Busy Sport Fishing, American Star and Cape Star. These charters offer various types of fishing trips for all!

Want to fish on your own? 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.

Have a boat? The Ship’s Store will assist you in keeping your vessel in tip-top shape. Have a boat elsewhere and want to visit by water? Utsch’s also has transient slips for those who wish to visit Cape May for a few days or more, and beautiful bathhouses and a laundromat are available. Stop by the office or call for reservations.

Save the date for Utsch’s Annual Fall Yard Sale! This year’s event will take place on Saturday, September 14 with great vendors and all of your boating needs!

Stop into Utsch’s and say hello, and see for yourself all the marina has to offer. Make Utsch’s Marina your “Home Away From Home…” You’ll be glad you did!
