This year the A.J .Meerwald, New Jersey's official tall ship will dock in Beach Haven July 19 - July 28

While taking a sail on the A.J. Meerwald, you  and your family will participate with the deck hands hoisting of the sails, learn about the creatures of the Barnegat Bay and receive a history lesson of the oyster ship and the industry of shellfishing.  There are several organizations that are working to maintain the ecosystems of Barnegat Bay that you may want to be aware of:

Barnegat Bay Partnership

Reclam the Bay

Oyster Farmers

Save Barnegat Bay

Pinelands Preservation Alliance

Alliance for a Living Ocean

The AJ Meerward will launch at for a daytime sail at 1:00 p.m. and the evening sail launches at 6:00 p.m. from the New Jersey Maritime Museum located on Dock Road in Beach Haven.  Tickets can be purchased online on the A.J. Meerwald Website. 


I was first introduced to the A.J. Meerwald when I sailed on it over 15 years ago with my then 10 year old daughter and her friends.  It really was a great experience and I recommend sailing the A.J. Meerwald to you, even if you have to catch it at another port.   Check out the dock schedule for more information about ports of call.
