Absolutely amazing, as always!!!! Sailors is our home away from home and Steve and the crew are fantastic on every level!!!!
by jeffdpt on Jun 26, 2020
Stayed Sunday evening through Thursday morning. Steve the dockmaster, concessionaire, and chief cook and bottlewasher could not have been more accomodating and looked to make us return customers. If there is a spot, take it.
by vixon3007 on Jun 24, 2020
What made this trip extra special is Steve. He cares about everyone one in the marina, making them feel welcome and if there are any issues he will attend to them quickly and efficiently without any delay. What a beautiful and heartwarming place to spend your vacation.

by gerilamano on Jun 22, 2020
It was an absolute perfect day. From arrival the dock hands were immediately there and so professional and friendly. A great asset to their employers. The dock area was clean and well maintained. Really, would prefer to keep this location a secret! LOL but we had a great day. Our fault we waiting too long to purchase ice cream for my Grandson, just missed it they closed. Next Time and there will be a next time. We plan on coming often over the summer.

Perfect experience. Steve was awesome
by franniedc on Jun 21, 2020
Sailors Haven is always a wonderful stay with all its nature. This time is was extra special meeting the manager Steve who is the nicest person
I take off one star as people did not adhere to posted signs for no sitting on docks. Social distancing and or masks was never present

Place was great. Steve and his dockhands were amazing. My slip was ready and they were waiting for us and helped us tie up. I would stay there again for sure!

General store not open
No lifeguards on duty but it’s Full price to dock
by genm on Jun 01, 2020
Steve is great. Very accommodating.
by rpasquarello on Jun 01, 2020
Out of Steve’s control that that snack bar and shop are still closed and no ferry service.
𝐃𝐢𝐬𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐬 should be offered in light of the above.

Sailors haven is a wonderful place for a family! It’s a great place for kids and adults! The marina is great and Steve does a great job running the place!

Steve and crew did a great job as usual. Very welcoming. The “appreation weekend” with free food and drinks was wonderful.
We will be back next year.
by ali22smiles on Sep 30, 2019
Location was beautiful. Staff was friendly and accommodating. One big drawback was the lack of hot water for the showers.
by penaltybox on Sep 24, 2019
The weather was perfect, the fellow mariners were, for the most part, courteous and Steve was very accommodating and helpful. Looking forward to our next trip there.
by frankcostajr on Sep 16, 2019
Steve and his staff at Sailors Haven are the best and go out of their way to make sure you are having a great time. One of my favorites of all the National Sea shores.
by andrew7382 on Sep 09, 2019
Great marina friendly staff
by marsea2 on Sep 08, 2019
Steve, who runs the dock...is very organized, friendly and hardworking which made our experience excellent!
by freedom3575 on Sep 06, 2019
Great spot, helpful staff, went after Labor Day and no crowds. Steve goes above and beyond, but he can't control the weather and once the wind kicks up over 20 mph from the north, no boat is comfortable there, but that's a chance we all take. Not their fault
by nmayes21 on Aug 31, 2019
Beautiful marina. Loved the beach and Sunken Forest trail.
Dock Master Steve was a friendly and welcoming host, great guy.
by eastendhn1 on Aug 30, 2019
Steve Connor is great!! Steve is a hands on person. He always does his best to make sure all his boaters are happy. The time he puts in before and after hours is amazing. His staff is wonderful and he's always personable. It's our favorite place to be and it's because of Steve. He hires the right people to assist him at the snack bar. Food, drinks and atmosphere are all top notch!!
Sailor's Haven is a pretty marina with great views of the Great South Bay and a beautiful shoreline.
by jenny700 on Aug 28, 2019
A beautiful marina, well run by Steve. We’ll be back again soon!
by nortelny1 on Aug 27, 2019
As always it was a pleasure staying at Sailors Haven, Steve is a great dock master and runs a beautiful marina. We look forward to our next trip.
by huntybear on Aug 27, 2019
The staff was fantastic. The facilities were good. My only complaint was that there is no wake barrier for the entrance to the marina, and a north wind pushes the waves from the great south bay right into the marina, rocking all of the boats. I don't understand why they don't design these marinas with some kind of wake barrier, so people can actually stay overnight.
by giantleo56 on Aug 25, 2019
As usual it's the best marina on Long Island. Thanks Steve!!
by brendakelly on Aug 24, 2019
The change in service and amenities is unbelievable. Steve goes above and beyond to accommodate all boaters. I can’t wait to start booking for next season. Job well done Federal Government in choosing this vendor!!! Surfin Safari
by kterwilliger on Aug 23, 2019
We love Sailor's Haven. It is a clean, beautiful beach and marina. We love the fact that it is family oriented and quiet. The dock hand (Hailey) is helpful and nice. We look forward to another visit.

Steve the Dockmaster is hands down one of the hardest working people I've had the privilege to meet. His hard work translates into an extremely well run marina and great place to spend time with your family and friends.

Great place to enjoy all that Fire Island has to offer. Steve and his team are the best.
by kevinwall on Aug 04, 2019
I had called and made reservations. .....for 24 foot.....we were in slip 27
You need a shoe horn to get in there. Luckily the 42 footer untied his lines and moved out of the way . Slip #26 helped walk us in
by akatz86 on Aug 04, 2019
The crew at Sailor’s Haven were fantastic! Very helpful and accommodating. This was our first boat trip there in about 12 years. Dockwa is a great site for info and reservations. We will use this service often and can’t wait for our next visit to Sailor’s Haven!
by stames2762 on Jul 30, 2019
As usual Steve and the staff are great!
Love this place!

Between the confirmed reservation for a slip, and Steve and his staff,f all made this a stress free and super enjoyable weekend at Sailors Haven Marina.. On our way back in a few weeks ..
by jdarra01 on Jul 29, 2019
Stay was excellent, It would be better to have bathrooms closer to the dock or store.
by genuinerisk on Jul 28, 2019
We stay for 4 nights and had a blast. Steve the dock master is an awesome guy. We really appreciate him going above and beyond. We can't wait to come back!
by sgraziano on Jul 23, 2019
We traveled from Atlantic Highlands NJ to Sailors Haven Marina on July 19, 2019. I first called and speak to Steve, the Marina Manager, and he was most pleasant and helpful! We then booked through Dockwa and when we arrived a dock hand was there to greet, assist and check us in. We soon after met Steve and he continued to be helpful and available throughout our two days there. The Marina was nicely kept and the cafe and bar area was nice and relaxing. Our stay was Awesome!

by joelisa14 on Jul 09, 2019
The owner/dockmaster Steve was extremely helpful, always asking if all was ok,and what he could do for us.The marina is a little rough and bouncy in windy conditions. We had a great July 4th weekend. We're going back Labor day
by reenie13 on Jul 08, 2019
Great stay this weekend, Steve is awesome Dockmaster and perfect host! Marina & facilities always clean.

by andicarley on Oct 07, 2018
We are long time patrons of Sailors Haven Marina.. and we can’t say enough good about the new management here.
Steve has brought back the old school marina feel, He remembers your names, grabs lines, offers a very nice and varied menu from a concession, is open to suggestion, is attentive to any issues that need repair and is trying very hard to create a community out here amongst the boaters!!
We were starting to give up on this place... but he has won our business back!!
Thank you ... it’s great to be back home!!
by cappy257 on Sep 16, 2018
We have been going to Sailors Haven for over thirty years. It is “our place to be.” We have raised our family here and enjoyed many summer vacations. Never before this year have we been made to feel so genuinely comfortable, as if we were a part of one big family. From Welcome to Farewell, Steve our wonderful new concessionaire has made every effort to accommodate, and satisfy any question or concern that we have. His kind and caring personality flows over to his staff and everyone provides a smile, a how are you doing and a have a nice day. We are so looking forward to enjoying many seasons to come with our new found extended family.

Seas The Day had a great experience at Sailors Haven, First Island, NY. We entered the marina and easily found our boat slip. We were pre-notified by email with our slip # and when we arrived there was a "reserve" sign with our boat's name on it. Shortly, were met by the Dock Master Steve to assist in tying up our boat, it was expertly done. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The facilities were beautifully maintained, there is a concession area with seating on picnic tables and live music was provided both Friday and Saturday nights. Thanks Steve, to you and your staff for making it an enjoyable stay for us. Regards, The Faneilli's "SEAS THE DAY"
by jtsaff on Sep 09, 2018
We have been going to sailors haven for well over 10 years We must say that Steve the new owner has been an absolute pleasure. He is definitely making changes for the better. He is a very friendly and personable man. What ever you need or inquire about he was there to help. I honestly can’t say enough about him.
by slainteskol on Sep 06, 2018
We have stayed in Sailors Haven on a number of occasions this summer. The marina is lovely, the beach is a short walk away, and the sunsets on the North Dock were always breath-taking. The new reservation system is convenient and easy to use. Steve, the Marina Manager, is an awesome hard working, friendly, and efficient guy who goes out of his way for boaters and ferry visitors alike. He is "Johnny on the Spot" no matter what you need! His staff is great. The Dockmaster Hailey always has a smile! Steve has made some great changes to the Concession Stand! The new menu and cocktails are a welcome addition. So are the earlier/later hours. By keeping the Concession Stand (Sassyfrass) opened later all of the Boaters can gather together in the evening in one place! We have known many of these folks for years it was great to sit together at the concession with them. I would say my only complaint has nothing to do with the Marina Management itself but rather with the Federal Parks Department. There are no hot showers and the showers that are there have no doors. I have never been to a Marina that doesn't have showers!! The beach itself was littered with snow fencing, pilings, and other debris. Why didn't the Parks people remove that dangerous debris? In addition, there is NO HANDICAPPED ACCESS TO THIS FEDERAL PARK/BEACH! REALLY!? Pre Sandy there was a ramp to get to the beach from the boardwalk, now there are only a steep set of stairs! Shameful! The Electric Service in the Marina leaves much to be desired. There are slips that are 15, 16, 17, 18+ feet wide and they only have a single 30 amp service? Really? These slips easily accommodate 40, 50, 60 foot boats. They should have the correct Electrical hook ups!! There are a few wider slips with 50 amp service but more are needed! All slips over 11 feet wide should have two 30amp hook ups or a 30 and a 50 amp hook up! Apparently the service was replaced post Hurricane Sandy but in typical bureaucratic government fashion they didn't have the sense to update the service. To further frustrate matters Watch Hill did upgrade the service but when you go over there you need a blood transfusion by the end of your stay (mosquitoes). I hope Steve will be staying on as the Marina Manager he really is awesome! I also hope the Parks Department gets its act together and does something about the debris, shower doors, Handicapped access, electric, etc... preferably THIS WINTER!!
by baydreamin on Aug 29, 2018
Steve Connor is the BEST thing to happen to Sailors Haven Marina in a long time! Never before has there been such personalized service. The reservation system is great. Slips are marked with "reserved" signs to avoid confusion. Steve tries to greet each boat as it pulls into the marina or sometime thereafter. He has created a family-like atmosphere amongst the staff and boaters, alike. The addition of adult beverages and musical entertainment for "happy hours" on weekends is his brainchild and has added to everyone's enjoyment. Steve has also hired a super new cook, Zack, and has opened the snack bar earlier for breakfast. No more waiting for the first ferry to arrive and the staff to get situated in order to get an egg sandwich. The gift shop is stocked with more useful items and souvenirs than in previous years. Kudos to whoever made the decision to award Steve the contract to run the Marina. I hope Steve will continue on at Sailors Haven for a long time.

We had a great day, Sailor's Haven marina is wonderful! This was our fourth trip this year and we will be back as soon as we can!
by diggin2day on Aug 19, 2018
We have been to Sailors Haven before and always loved it, but this is a different kind of review... it’s a review of their excellent service and cancellation policy. I reserved a slip a few days ago and Steve was able to get us next to two of our friends(awesome experience being able to reserve!!). Then on the day we were supposed to arrive at the marina, we woke up to nasty wind/weather conditions. We decided not to go and messaged the marina(through the Dockwa app) that we would like to cancel our reservation.... I received a response within minutes stating that we were cancelled and a full refund was issued. Can’t wait to get there next weekend!! Great service Steve... thank you!!!
by april4583 on Aug 18, 2018

Great stay , super staff !!!
Small and calm marina with Steve as Dock master made it very welcoming, he’s like a great Innkeeper and concierges.
by brncyn on Aug 09, 2018
Great location, marina manager is excellent had problem with the electric and he fixed it asap. He runs the place like a small inn, he walks the dock checking if everything is alright
by hitide56 on Aug 07, 2018
NOT worth the exorbitant rates! Check out other options! There is reasonable anchorage on the west side of the channel in.
Things they say they have but don’t really:
NO showers. What they have is merely a beach rinse off. It’s outdoor and exposed, no curtain, and no hot water.
NO functional pumpout. Marina staff has no idea when it was last functional or when it will be repaired.
NO free wifi. A wifi service is available for those who pay a subscription fee.
Power is available through an old style, seen-no-where-else-anymore plug types. Regular customers here have a specific adapter and brought it with them as they knew, in advance, what type of connector is on the pedastal. And the fees for electric are absurdly high. $14.00-$18.00 for 30 and 50 amp but only through the old plug type.
This marina, in past summers a hive of summer activity, is now nearly empty most of the time. I assume, since the rates went way up this year, all the boaters that came here in previous summers, have now found more reasonable summer fun spots.
This marina is essentially over priced beach parking. We are cruisers and have pulled into marinas all along the east coast and out to The Keys. Every marina we’ve used, even the most basic, offer hot showers and free wifi. I understand fresh water is a difficult proposition on this island, however, if a marina cannot cover some of the basic expectations to be found in marinas, they cannot charge fees higher than many marinas who do offer these items.
by seaviewda on Jul 31, 2018
Great time as usual. Steve is doing a great job since taking over marina responsibilities this year. Hailey is always helpful with a smile as dockmaster.
by mikelopic on Jul 30, 2018
Our weekend stay at Sailors Haven was great and Steve and Haley were extremely pleasant and helpful. our boat Freedom
by bulkheading on Jul 30, 2018
Steve the dock master is Great
Staff is friendly
How ever its very frustrating that after all these years the marina still does not have 50 AMP 230 V the two biggest slips in the marina 21 and 22 have 30 amp
Even plugging in at the barge slip still can't obtain power.
Please forward this to the proper personal so i can enjoy my stay along with many other guests I'm sure, and see to it that we don't have to run our generators during our stay.
by bobh977 on Jul 26, 2018
Although most stayed home due to the weather forecast glad we went. Steve is awesome. So curteous and helpful he makes us feel so welcome. We basically had the marina to ourselves. We will be back soon.

Another Great Stay, a new chef with great food.
by serdmann818 on Jul 18, 2018
Have been coming here for years. Never dissapoints always a great place to visit and relax with my family and the boats. This vacation was much needed and everyone at sailors haven was fantastic! Steve the head of operations was an awesome guy! Super nice down to earth person with a great personality always looking to better your time here and sailors haven as a whole. I’ve come here for over 10 years and it was obvious this year they stepped up and put a little time and work into the marina putting in all new poles and electrical for the boats. Pairing the Dockwa app with the reservation process for easier booking. Can’t say enough good about sailors haven steve and all the staff here. All great people and will be back in August for a weekend trip. See you soon steve!
