About Us

Whale Creek Marina is a laid-back, friendly, full service marina and has been family owned and operated since 2007.  We are only a 5 minute drive from Sea Isle City and Ocean City NJ, and there's plenty of free parking!

Live bait is almost always available and we have gas, snacks, and a full line of tackle and rods in our shop.

Whale Creek Marina is about more than just boat slips - we rent out kayaks, boats and paddleboards. We help host striper tournaments (check out the white board on the back deck for results!) and have frequent free fishing seminars.

We got our name from nearby Whale Beach, a strip of sand where whales would beach themselves in the 1950's.  

Whale Creek is near Corson’s Inlet State Park and along the New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail Route.  The public boat ramp next to our marina is a stop along the Jersey Island Blueway.  We are always happy to lend a hand or answer any questions, so give us a call or stop in and see what we're all about.  Hope to see you this season!

We became the proud new owners of Frank's Boat Rentals (now Frank's at Whale Creek) in 2013, and we have added their fishing boats to our rental fleet.  What hasn't changed is all the good memories and family fun everyone had at Frank's over the years.  We are proud to keep that tradition going down at Whale Creek.
