Two Classic Boats to choose from, Navesink Queen and the Mariner

Classic Boat Rides is proud to offer you two boats to choose from.  Our roomy paddlewheel boat the Navesink Queen and our Chesapeake Bay Dead Rise Wooden boat Mariner.  Ironically both boats were built in Delta Ville Virginia.  The Queen in 1986 and the Mariner in 1978.  The Mariner spent her entire life in south Jersey sailing out of Fortescue.  The Queen was a ferry boat in Norfolk Va.    We are very happy to now have them both sailing from Atlantic Highlands New Jersey.  Give us a call for more information about chartering either boat for your next special occasion  732-337-9292  


It's easy for folks to get Atlantic Highlands and Highlands confused and so many people do. When looking for Classic Boat Rides Charter boat Mariner be sure to GPS Atlantic Highlands (not Highlands) The best address to use is 8 Simon Lake Drive Atlantic Highlands NJ 07716. This will take you to Sissy's Breakfast and lunch and On the Deck Restaurant. At the front door of Sissy's, turn right and go down the ramp to the floating dock PIER 1.  Then turn left down pier 1 and MARINER is in the 2nd slip on the right.  Slip 5 on Pier 1.  If you walk out the back door of Sissy's you'll be on Franks Pier where you can find the Navesink Queen out near the end in slip 65.  We hope Sea you soon.  Thank You. Captain Dan and First Mate Vicky.

The NAVESINK QUEEN is located at FRANK'S PIER at SLIP 65 (toward the end).
The MARINER is located on PIER 1 SLIP 3. (just to the left of the Charter Fishing Boats at Atlantic Highlands Marina).
