Upon waterways large and small, boating has become one of our township's most popular recreational activities. With the Atlantic Ocean as a southern border and a system of inland waterways dotting our mainland, the town boasts a proud nautical heritage.

With more boaters sailing town waters than ever before, a "wave" of related businesses and services has emerged. Many of the resources available to town residents and visiting boaters are listed below.
