Eagle Manor has 400 feet of river frontage on the majestic Cohansey River which is the deepest river in New Jersey. The water depth accommodates the largest sailboats and yachts with plenty of room for boating and water-skiing. The Manor’s private boat ramp is located just a 15 minute boat ride from the Delaware Bay meaning that fishermen can enjoy fresh water, salt water, and deep sea fishing. Boaters can also take day trips to Philadelphia and Cape May. Despite it’s central location and navigability, you will rarely see other boats on the river, meaning that Eagle Manor guests essentially have the entire river to themselves.
In colonial times the river provided an anchorage for vessels approaching Philadelphia. In 1774, the small port village of Greenwich on the river near its mouth was the scene of an incident similar to the more famous Boston Tea Party in which imported tea was burned as a protest against taxation
