    Took a day trip to Belmar for a change of pace. Quiet and peaceful in the off season. Easy parking and almost people free. I remember how busy this beach gets in the summer. Enjoyed the day

    Love this shore town, been going here since I was a little girl. Always feel like I'm returning home. This town has a nice, well maintained beach, the best life guards and plenty of places to eat. It offers something for every age group.

    Had an amazing time celebrating my son’s 28th birthday! The crew was great and the parasail ride was just incredible.

    Thank you Billy, Pete, Eric, Rebecca and of course Captain Johnny!! Yes Rich, your sarcasm was missed!!! Another great day of fishing on the Royal Miss Belmar! We fish this boat often because it is the best boat with the best crew! They make you feel like family, they help everyone from the beginning fisherman to the most experienced! Fluke, Sea Bass, Stripper we have fished for them all on this boat and we always catch.

    It was my second time stand up paddleboarding, and I rented a board here for 1 hour so that I could meet up with a friend who already had her own board. I would say that if it had been my first time, I would have wanted a lot more guidance on how to get on and use the board. But since I had done SUP before, it was ok for me. Water is shallow at the area where you get in, so it's great for non-swimmers, kids, or people who aren't sure of themselves on the board. Life jackets are provided. The Shark River inlet beyond the shallow area is a no wake zone so the water is calm and it's really beautiful near sunset time. Online booking was super easy also. Hoping I can come back soon!

    Summertime Surf School is the best! My 11-year-old daughter just had 2 private lessons at the Asbury Park location.

    The coaches and staff there were very friendly and helpful. The coaches were very experienced. They were good at teaching kids. The lessons were very efficient. My daughter has never surfed before, she stood up at her 2nd try and she successfully rode several tides in her first lesson! The coaches were considerate, they took good care of kids.

    The online booking process was straightforward. The location is great, convenient to access, fine sand, nice beach and waives. There is a free public parking lot nearby.

    We were very happy with the private lessons. My daughter will definitely take more lessons with them next summer.

    Wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Boat was clean and seats on upper deck were comfortable. Seeing the dolphins and a whale in their “home” was incredible. Naturalist on board shared interesting facts about the whales and dolphins and their Habits.

    My friend and I went whale watching with the Ocean Explorer. Captain Bobby and his crew were amazing. they went out of their way to make it a perfect day. We drove out into the ocean and watched two whales spouting and jumping then on the way back in we saw another whale jump out of the water and dive back in.
    There was also a naturalist on the boat who spent a great deal of time going around and talking with each individual group on the boat, showing us all pictures of the different types of whales and explaining how they are different. She also answered all of our questions. I got an education about whales and this made the day even more interesting.
    Bobby and his crew were wonderful. They told us exactly where to watch for the whales and there they were.
    We will defiantly go again in with Ocean Explorer in 2022.

    Our daughter wanted to go deep sea fishing for her birthday. There were four of us and three of us had never been. We got on board early and got our spots. You can bring your own rods or you can rent some for a small fee. We rented, and the crew will also rig your tackle and provide bait for your hooks.

    We left right on time and got out to the first fishing spot in about 45 minutes to an hour. The Captain moved us probably 8 times over the course of the day to keep us on the fish. All in all a great time. Recommended!

    Every time we go to Belmar, NJ, we always stop here on the way home for Salt Water Taffy. Its always a must. Easy parking (off season). Plenty of candy to satisfy and sweet urges.

    I took my daughter here recently and we had a fun time. Parking was easy and plentiful because it is currently winter. Once inside we bought an hour and enjoyed playing the various old style arcade games and it made for the centerpiece of a nice afternoon. They have a decent variety, more than enough to occupy an hour or two.

    I would recommend this place as a great way to entertain kids when the weather is cold or rainy.

    Just had to visit D'Jais for a nice cold beverage. Went off hours during the day and sat on the outside seating area. Strawberry Daquri's were delicious and service was very good. Inside a rock club playing music. Great atmosphere.

    If looking for a place that has great food for a great price visit the Boathouse. The burgers and fries were great!

    Nearfall charters is the best around! Captain Joe and his Crew will take care of you and your group from start to finish. They’re knowledgeable and will make sure they’re giving you the best opportunity to catch as many fish as you can. If you’re looking for a boat for a small group where you don’t have to deal with the crowds, this is the perfect option. The deck it a great space for private groups. Highly recommend anyone book a trip in the Nearfall.
