Education, Fun and Friends


We are America’s Boating Club® – Raritan Bay. We are part of a nation-wide boating organization—for boaters, by boaters. We serve recreational boaters of all kinds in the central New Jersey area, including Raritan Bay, Barnegat Bay as well as other waterways in the region. Our local club has been around for more than 50 years while our national club is more than a century old. You may already know us as the “Power Squadron” or “Raritan Bay Power Squadron®”.

Whether your preference is power, sail or paddle, we have something for you. Whether you are an angler, day cruiser, blue water voyager or just enjoy hanging out on your boat on weekends, we have something for you. Even if you are new to boating and have yet to buy your first boat, we will help you get started. Whatever your type and style of boating, America’s Boating Club is the place to go to learn and to build or strengthen your boating skills. You can learn online, in a class or semiar, or on the water in your own boat. It’s your choice. We invite you to make the most of it.

Many of our members started out looking to learn and to build or improve their boating skills and then decided to become members of our family-oriented club where they could enjoy the company of like-minded individuals at both on-the-water boating events and off-the-water social events.

We invite you to spend a few minutes checking out our web site areas to see what we can offer you. Again, welcome aboard!
