Summer Boating Tips from the NJDEP

As we approach the summer boating and tourism season, the Department of Environmental Protection is asking boaters to help our environment by using caution in ecologically sensitive areas while having fun boating on Barnegat Bay, and also using similar restraint when boating in other important ecological areas throughout the state. 

An online interactive map for boaters is available, which can be accessed on mobile devices and computers, so that boaters can easily learn the locations of these 16 designated ecologically sensitive areas. Users also can find helpful services such as the locations of marinas, sewage pump-out facilities, bait-and-tackle shops, launches and ramps, restrooms, and places to dispose trash.
