Sam's Star Island Yacht Club attracts a wide variety of people year-round with a passion for cruising and fishing. Fishermen and boaters come from all over the Island and up and down the East Coast to enjoy the excitement of seasonal sport fishing and access to an extensive fleet of charter boats. Sam's Star Island is also host to many fishing tournaments, cruising club rendezvous, and catered events, as well as Sam's Star Island’s own planned tournaments, including its renown annual shark tournament.
With its unique resemblance of a star floating on the ocean, Sam's Star Island Yacht Club has come a long way from the boat yard it once was. Sam Gershowitz and his team have turned it into a great destination for boaters on the East Coast. “It’s a beautiful place,” Gershowitz says with pride. “It’s a yacht club and a marina, and we cater to people here. It's a very comfortable place to hang around.”
No marina in the area offers more facilities and services. The Ship’s Store is one of the largest tackle shops with bait of every type, an expert staff, marine supplies including electrical, polishes and waxes, cleaning materials, marine safety equipment, boat batteries, collectors’ items, groceries, and a full repair service. Visitors can sit down for a casual breakfast, lunch and dinner at Star Island Grill, serving fresh locally caught seafood. Spend Saturday nights at Star Island Grill for live poolside music and dancing overlooking Lake Montauk and the ocean. With all it has to offer, Sam's Star Island Yacht Club is an inviting club and marina for all. We invite you to consider the possibilities at Sam's Star Island.
We did the catch & cook at the restaurant and by far exceeded any expectations we had. The chef is amazing. The marina is top notch as well.
Clean, well maintained, convenient. They even have fuel pumps on some of the docks. You can top off your tanks without even leaving the slip. All around a class operation.
Always love this marina. Unfortunately this year during heat wave, the pool was closed for lack of a life guard. Understand that’s a nation issue…colleges opening early. Food at the grill as incredible…breakfast and dinner. Fish tacos and tuna were to die for!
Great place, great staff!
Beautiful Marina!!! Friendly staff and very accommodating. Special thanks to the gentleman and the kid. Who helped me retrieve my phone that fell overboard. Wish I asked their names to thank them personally. Especially the kid that dove into the harbor and got it on the first try!! Thanks again and we’ll be seeing you soon!!
Just a nice clean marina and welcoming staff and just the right amount of needed facilities
Marina was nice, amenities were fine. The marina seems to be for fishing boats. Docks were way cluttered with, coolers, dead bait, filleted fish guts etc. Not a yachting marina. Staff were nice.
Great location and facility
Great marina. Kids loved the pool and catching stripers right off the dock. Ability to gas up right in your slip is fantastic.
Great spot, services, store and restaurant. Dockhands always around and accommodating.
Terrible!!!!! The pool was closed because the Life guard was not available. I paid over $250 and traveled from Babylon, NY to enjoy my stay in Montauk for nothing. Will not be returning to Star Island ever again. Would give this place a zero if I could.
Always a great time at Sam’s Star Island!
We love it at Star island and look forward to go every year. Wonderful service! Food and store!
Great Marina! Really helpful staff. We had a minor engine problem, I mentioned it to the dockhand and he sent a mechanic right down. Had it fixed in no time.
The staff was nice and helpful. Having fuel at every dock slip was great. Food in the restaurant was pretty good. Showers and bathroom were decent (not Old Saybrook, but much better than the Oar). Very strong fishing boat presence on the docks. In a 25 knot easterly, the water was relatively calm and protected.
great place - easy to get in and out of... dock hand help was great... we didn't try the restaurant as we ended up eating at other places but overall, very satisfied...
Staff was very helpful and accommodating
Generally a nice place. Has a well appointed store and a causal restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner. Two negatives I’d say. It’s very expensive at about $8/ ft. Store prices are similarly high. I paid $55 for a 25’ dock line I needed. Also with a lot of fishing boats, it can sometimes get a bit noisy by about 6:30 am so not great if you want to sleep a bit late. Sunday’s seems quite than other days.
Great location, service was outstanding. Will definitely be going back!
Awesome stay!! Staff and slips are amazing:)
John & the rest of the staff at Star Island are always first rate, thanks again !
It is a nice marina, not $252 nice. There were 4 other marinas nearby at have the cost. It is on an island so it is a mile and a half walk to the restaurants and bars. The showers while clean were claustrophobic super small shower and dressing area. Pool closed at 6pm.
