Pilotage Service

The Sandy Hook Pilot Associations provide pilotage services to all foreign flag vessels and American vessels under register (regulated vessels) entering or departing the Port of New York/New Jersey, the Hudson River, the East River, Atlantic City, Jamaica Bay, and Long Island Sound as required by state law. Pilotage is provided on a 24-hour basis, 365 days of the year in all weather conditions and port circumstances.

The Sandy Hook Pilots are licensed maritime pilots that go aboard oceangoing vessels, passenger liners, freighters, and tankers, usually on the open sea near the entrance to the harbor. The Sandy Hook Pilots Association provides pilotage service for the entire Port of New York and New Jersey, the Hudson River, and Long Island Sound.  The peninsulas of Sandy Hook and Rockaway in Lower New York Bay define the southern entrance to the port at the Atlantic Ocean.
