Located on the southern tip of the New Jersey peninsula in Cape May, South Jersey Marina offers offshore team-building activities for companies and groups that come to the area for conferences and meetings. Groups can rent charter boats, with six people on each boat, and sail offshore to get a tour of the unique area. Groups also have the option to dolphin or bird watch and, of course, fish. “There is nothing that builds teamwork better than sport fishing,” says Marketing Director Mark Allen. From birding to dolphin watching to sport fishing, South Jersey Marina provides all the necessary accommodations to make every boating experience productive and pleasurable.
