First time at this marina. We own a 46 foot sailboat. Unfortunately we were directed to a fixed sea wall closest to the public park. The tides are more than 3 feet. Between the current of the river and winds our spot was exposed to marine traffic and lots of waves. It was almost impossible to prepare breakfast each morning due to severe Rocking and bouncing. At night the water calmed down so that we could get in 6 hours of rest. We booked our three night stay over 5 weeks in advance so there should have been time to get us into a Floating dock insulated by the river and marine traffic. Kate the manager was very nice and helpful. WiFi was nonexistent the entire stay. The facility is very nice. Good gym. However weddings are every night so getting into restaurants is impossible. Free bike use. I rate the dock and slip a 1. The pool and facility a 4. One night we chose to use the BBQ grill on the dock. I went to light the grill and two tanks were left empty. I call the desk to request a filled tank and 20 minutes later someone comes. He installs the new tank and the grill does not light. I spent another 20 minutes trying to get the grill to lite. No good. He directs me to the complete opposite end of the facility. Mind you I have food that I am carrying to grill. The first grill I find does not have a tank. The third and final grill has a tank but no starter. I have to remove greasy grates to light the grill. It lites and I am able to cook my dinner. Then walk all the way back to my boat on the exposed sea wall. My food was cold by then. Horrible experience. The final day I walk my 5 pound dog. It’s low tide and the wind is pushing my boat 5 feet off the fixed dock. Holding my dog by her leash I step onto my boat and she slips and falls to the water being saved by my still holding onto the leash. Unfortunately due to our very poor experience with the fixed sea wall we will not return.
We were assigned mooring number C4 but it was occupied. We were then assigned D4 and when tying up one of the cleat lines was tangled up forcing us to get on our paddle board to disentangle ourselves. A storm was coming and we wanted both cleat lines secure. The launch service is excellent and timely. Nice private area to moor your boat.
We had our initial reservation at three mile but were moved to Halsey's Marina. It is part of the same family of marinas but a mile north. We absolutely loved the facility and grounds and staff. Les Black is super helpful and knowledgeable. He would not let us tie up to our slip without his hands on help. The marina has gas grills. Local seasonal boaters who are very friendly. The laundry has new washer and dryer and they are free to use. It’s very close to East Hampton center and 30 minutes from Montauk. Strongly recommend Haley’s. The nicest marina on our trip. .
Great location. Private setting. 8 minute walk to town. Marina has pool. Laundry room needs to be upgraded to modern washing and drying machines. Rest rooms are average. Showers are average but clean. Rest rooms and showers need updating. Hand dryers in men’s room do not blow air forcefully. Need a propane grill on the grounds. Fortunately we have our own but charcoal grills are not useful as the only means to grill.
