Atlantic Cape is currently one of only two community colleges in the United States, along with Orange County, California, to field a Crew program. The Buccaneer Crew team is a co-ed squad that will be competing against both two-year and four-year colleges and universities in tournaments across the country. Visit to learn more about the Atlantic Cape Crew program.

Atlantic Cape twice previously fielded Crew teams, initially in 1972 and 1973 under the guidance of head coach Jim Wortman, and again in 1983 under head coach Thomas P. McCann, a 1973 alumnus and one of the original Crew team members. The 1972 Crew team placed third and the 1973 team fifth at the annual Dad Vail Regatta, which is the largest regular intercollegiate rowing event in the United States.
