found the marina an excellent place to relax and enjoy. The bartender and members we spoke to where very friendly. An area for improvement would be to mark the slips so they're visible from the water. Both myself and the boat I traveled with pulled into the wrong slip because they were not marked. The boat I traveled with sustained a small gouge when trying to leave the first slip they entered. Other than that - an excellent place to visit.

The only thing that was missing was instructions how to get in and out of the club . There is an electronic gate . They were accommodating in letting us in and out but we didn’t know how to handle . Perhaps transients should be given a card or something to operate the gate .Everything else was great !

Absolutely beautiful facility and grounds - possibly the nicest we've used, and friendly service. We needed fuel first and the dock hand came over to help us dock stern-in, not the easiest thing to do with a 44-ft vessel. Shower was also great, spacious and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

The Branford yacht club manager was very accommodating and helpful. When we came in late after hours, he sent us a nice visual, drawing of exactly where our slip would be for the night. He helped us refuel and get water and ice the next day. it is a very nice quiet, calm location with clean bathrooms, a hot shower, and a good bar. I highly recommend it

This is a nice facility, used primarily by residents of Branford, CT, but accommodating some transients. Floating docks are in good shape with ample cleats. Electricity & water are available from a pedestal at each slip. All as one would hope. The staff is friendly & helpful beyond all expectations. In our case, special applause for Matt the General Manager and dock-hand Peter. Also there are several waterfront restaurants/bars up the quiet Branfpord River, easily reached by water. We were there during first week of July, and there were lively music and some food trucks over the 4th of July weekend. A great stop in an interesting area along the Connecticut coast.

This was our first visit and we can not be more pleased with this marina. The marina staff understands that marinas are a hospitality business. They went out of their way to make us feel at home there. They had live music and food trucks while we were there but they took measures to make sure social distancing and other covid measures were followed. We will definitely visit again when in the area.

Very clean and modern marina with high quality docks that have all kinds of protective rollers and soft bumpers to protect boats while docking. Three people were helping me dock, super nice! Great facilities, easy walk to a grocery store and a restaurant. Highly recommend!

Great spot! Jim and his crew keep the facilities in terrific shape, very helpful from the dock to the clubhouse and beyond. Cleanest showers ever with a/c. Bocce court, Cornhole, lots of outdoor seating, good views of the Sound, no food service, but a bar coming in 2020! Branford was a quick ride away and we enjoyed the Shoreline Trolley museum. Location on north side was convenient and the marina had good breezes and only a little wave action in SW winds.

Great yacht club. We really didn't explore as we were leaving at the crack of dawn. Some confusion initially as what slip but we got everything sorted out.
