Welcome to Ricks Marina, a full service family owned marina located on the historic Forked River. Founded in 1985, we have built a known reputation for quality service that goes above and beyond the standard practices of the marine industry. Our facility is equipped with 76 slips that range in size from 16' to 60' as well as a full service yard to handle all or your dry storage needs.

With the famous Barnegat Inlet a short ride from our docks and Tices Shoal directly across the bay, the marina provides a safe harbor for not only sport fisherman, but for family orientated boaters as well.

The marina offers large, lighted, and fenced waterside acreage with the owners living on premises. This provides a tranquil and secure setting for boaters to enjoy overnight stays. We also offer the Ramp & Store option for customers to leave their boat on a trailer in the yard so they don't have to haul it back and forth on the highway.

With a large, clean, and safe marina centrally located for all types of boating needs, Ricks Marina is your destination for a pleasant boating experience!
