They do everything right, from sending a launch out to help us find our mooring ball, to the friendliness and responsiveness of the launch drivers, to the great facilities and the friendliness of the members. Best shower I’ve had in a while. They were also great in helping us find someone to repair our dinghy outboard, and local restaurant recommendations. We stayed here an extra day because we enjoyed the experience.
A good marina, protected, good facilities and the staff could not have been more helpful or professional. We would stay there again.
Where to start? We are a sailboat and there were 18kts of wind at the dock. This was our first time in Port Jefferson. One of the dockhands who did help yelled at us (and the other sailboats who docked) to the extent that his partner actually apologized. Because Of the wind we went bow in, which started another set of problems. For $5 a foot I would have expected power and water at least on our side of the dock. Instead we had to stretch our power cord across the dock, with resulting problems keeping it flat on the dock and plugged in. The heads and showers are in the yacht club building, which is fine, except that it is outside the gates, which are locked at midnight til 8 am. They also shoehorned a very nice, beamy power yacht next to us. The captain did a masterful job getting her in without hitting us, but there were empty slips elsewhere. The location is good, but i would use a mooring ball next time.
