Whether you’re out for a day sail or a week vacation, CIYC is the ultimate in starting points. Just a short sail away are some wonderful destinations, including Little Neck Bay, Manhasset Bay, and New Rochelle. Just a little farther are day trips to the beaches of Captain’s Island and the July 4th fireworks in Hempstead Harbor. Overnight destinations include Oyster Bay, Northport Harbor, Southern Connecticut, Sandy Hook, and picturesque Port Jefferson.
I keep my boat at a CIYC every summer. The club is fantastic, and the people are great. It is perfect mooring spot -- protected and convenient. It's the gateway to the Long Island Sound, and in the other direction a good place to wait for the right current through Hell Gate. Highly recommended!!!!
Always a pleasure to stay at CIYC
The Bathrooms/showers are old but kept clean. The staff is excellent as well as the resteraunt. City Island is a very quaint, friendly town with lots of ship building history.
Great launch service, delicious dinner on the patio overlooking the Harbor at the club. Nice bar.
This truly is a hidden jewel. Excellent launch service and very accommodating to some special request we had during our stay. Great view of Manhattan skyline in the distance and beautiful sunsets. Looking forward to our return in the fall!
Great location and great people! Enjoyed it very much. Nice walk in town with laundry, great coffee shop and fun restaurants. Who new that The Bronx had great marinas!
Mooring field directly in front of the Yacht Club. Launch service available. Club is very quaint with excellent food.
They sent a launch out to help us to find our mooring. The water taxi was quick and friendly. Dinner in the restaurant was very good. We asked for advice on transitting Hell Gate and they found a cruising group we could join for the transit. Outstanding!
Very warm and inviting. Members treated us like we were home. Highly Recommend this place.
Nice club with friendly staff. Very convenient for East River passage. Dockmaster Joe very helpful.
A bit bumpy with a strong SW breeze but nice people. Would stay again. Great location if you are planning a run through Hell Gate the next day.
Not good, unprotected and a few mooring balls did not have lines to hook too!
good value, funky facility, great staff. By the way, they have a restaurant! Unfortunately we didn't find out until after standing in an extremely long line with extremely mediocre food, but we will try the YC next time. Yes, there will be a next time.
Easy in and out if you’re waiting to go through HellsGate
Gave us a mooring in close, away from “the edge”. Convenient to main road in City Island, bus stops, shops and restaurants.
