Great marina friendly staff

by hundtk on Oct 08, 2020
It was great except for the relentless wind!

by silvertonj on Oct 05, 2020
Staff were great, dock hands were excellent , very pleased to see that Sailors Haven takes CDC guide lines for Covid very seriously , all the staff wore masks, Watch Hill should use Sailors Haven as an example of how to do it right

by inspectorpaulieb on Oct 05, 2020
Had a wonderful time. Dock master & Dock mates were very attentive. Great port to visit.

by almalewski on Oct 05, 2020

by frankcostajr on Sep 08, 2020
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 zslavin on Sep 02, 2020
open marina so be prepared to rock unless there's a south wind

by kismet on Aug 28, 2020
We rode out the weather the last couple days but when it was nice, it was just as magical as ever. Kudos to Steve and his team for looking out for us. Kismet

by victoriaann on Aug 27, 2020
If you want to get away from the commotion of every day life and enjoy your surroundings this is the place . Great place for time with the family on the boat. Dock master and staff provided adapter from 50 to 30 amp service . Will be going again

by adagio1985 on Aug 24, 2020
Steve and crew did a great job as usual. The food this year is even better than last year. Good work all around, given the crowds, the heat, and virus protocols.

by nancydamone on Aug 24, 2020
We love the peace and tranquillity

by greinert on Aug 23, 2020

Steve is the best !!!!

by katieandreski918 on Aug 17, 2020
As always, we had a fabulous time at Sailor’s! Steve and his crew are amazing, accommodating, and so very helpful!!! We cannot wait to be back!

by debbi710 on Aug 12, 2020
Starting with something so small that goes a big way is that when you dock your boat name is hanging on the dock to welcome you. Steve and his crew are there to greet you and grab your lines while asking if there is anything you need, ie. ice or a frozen drink. Steve is accessible all day and always ready to serve with a smile. Thank you Steve, your amazing! The marina is clean, the sunken forest is a wonderful nature walk, there is a shop to look around, food, a bar and best of all, ice cream! We loved the clean docks and our sand area for our tent over the picnic table. A perfect get away

by eastendhn1 on Aug 12, 2020
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 chrisludwig513 on Aug 12, 2020
The Marina is in excellent shape. Everything working, clean and covid compliant. Dock attendants are courteous and efficient. The dock master, Steve is a pleasure to deal with.

by hydrotherapy on Aug 12, 2020
Sailors Haven is a good location on fire island as you can take a water taxi to the neighboring communities. The beach is a short walk and it is a nice walk through the Sunken Forest. The marina does not give much protection and boats get rocked.

by april4583 on Aug 11, 2020
Awesome place to go with family & friends!!! Steve and his crew make it an unbelievable experience they are the BEST!!!!!!!!!!! Amazing food from the shack along with delicious drinks!! It’s truly a special place! We love Sailors ♥️

by ifusil on Aug 10, 2020
Terrific stay. As always, Steve is the perfect host! Coming back on Labor Day Weekend for another visit! Folks next to us were a bit noisy, but Steve spoke to them anonymously for us.

by miken on Aug 10, 2020
Steve the dockmaster was very accommodating especially being one of my engines went down and needed to stay an extra two days thanks to the whole staff... Mike

by jennaprada on Aug 09, 2020
Beautiful location - the Sunken Forest walk was a highlight. Amenities are well maintained and clean - except for sand I'm the showers, but it's the beach! Steve was extremely accommodating as we had to shift plans because of a storm and remained helpful during our stay. Highly recommend.

by jaclync324 on Aug 07, 2020
We love sailors haven! The bathrooms are always clean. Steve is the best. He hires the best people and works hard to keep everyone happy and healthy. The food at the snack bar is chef quality!

by caboguy on Aug 06, 2020
Great secluded little spot. No ream amenities to speak of, but that’s exactly what we were looking for.

by joelisa14 on Aug 02, 2020
The owner Steve was extremely helpful, hes a great guy he made a Captains Dinner Saturday night, delicious pulled pork and sides,even dessert

by giantleo56 on Jul 31, 2020
As usual it's the best marina on Long Island. Thanks Steve!! Lions Den

by janicehurowitz on Jul 28, 2020
It was our first experience docking overnight anywhere and Sailors Haven was a perfect introduction. We docked on the west side which has a picnic area and you can see the sunrise on one end of the boat and the set on the other side. The snack bar was great for breakfast and lunch. People brought portable grills with them and plenty were cooking away. Can’t wait to go back.

by rwalker on Jul 27, 2020
Great day the Dock girl where very helpful and polite. Thanks for an awesome day.

by avalon066 on Jul 25, 2020
To start off, a confirmed reservation for a slip takes 90% of the stress out of the equation..Steve and his staff are super and made for an enjoyable week at Sailors Haven Marina.. On our way back in a few weeks ..

by rgshaw23 on Jul 23, 2020
Very friendly staff. Beautiful place

by namasteii on Jul 21, 2020
Great place. Just a note...not good with a north wind. People are great. Beach is beautiful. Great concession. Band on the weekend.

by genm on Jul 21, 2020
Steve is great. Very accommodating.

Great marina! Steve is an awesome manager. Place was clean and beautiful!

by jerrychina1 on Jul 14, 2020
Facility is fairly small but our favorite weekend getaway. Steve runs a top notch facility and his staff is always friendly and attentive. Grounds well maintained and everything is clean and in working order. Thumbs up!

by vinnie11 on Jul 13, 2020
Power pole kept tripping. Unusable

by thumper8541 on Jul 12, 2020
Always a great stay with Steve and the crew at Sailors.

by wildcat on Jul 01, 2020
Steve and his crew are great. Accommodating and attentive to every guest.

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 searay5000 on Jun 23, 2020
Quite and beautiful as always!

by byusko on Jun 22, 2020
We had a great Father's Day at Sailor's Haven!

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.

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

by mikegeraghty on Jun 21, 2020
Always greeted with prompt service and a smile ... One would expect nothing less when supported by great leadership! Thank you To Steve & his team

by tmccarth on Jun 21, 2020
Awesome my favorite place to be.

by ktmccauley1 on Jun 16, 2020
It was our first time there. Everything was great. The deck hands were amazing and the marina was very clean and everyone was so nice . Def will be back

by jackieny777 on Jun 08, 2020
Always a pleasure staying here! We love this place and Steve's the best!

by mrbretz1969 on Jun 08, 2020
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!

by smitty59 on Jun 01, 2020
General store not open No lifeguards on duty but it’s Full price to dock

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.

by clg11374 on May 27, 2020
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!

by marcz on May 26, 2020
Great place great marina... Steve and the crew are awesome and very helpful

by peteypete115 on May 26, 2020
Great time.!! Thanks Steve.

by jlorenzo16 on May 25, 2020
The marina is great and Steve is awesome!

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 marsea2 on Sep 08, 2019
Steve, who runs the 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 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 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.

by ooki on Aug 23, 2019
Can never say enough.........Steve and his staff are the best from the minute you get there till the moment you leave. The Cafe food is delicious

by onextension on Aug 19, 2019
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.

by dineug on Aug 09, 2019
Steve Connor and all his staff are doing a wonderful job!!!!!!! Can't wait for our next stay! Diane and Joe

by des1775 on Aug 05, 2019
Steve, Haley and the rest of the staff were great and made sure our 1st stay was smooth. Will definitely be going regularly.

by mletinski on Aug 05, 2019
Great Stay! Thank you Steve and Crew. We will be back for certain! -No Reservations

by steveenoch on Aug 04, 2019
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!

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 stepup35 on Jul 21, 2019
Great Marina and location.

by statbiomed on Jun 10, 2019
Meet by Steve and he made us aware of available specials and services. Spent the night and enjoyed our time. Drinks were great.

by jenn1114 on Oct 08, 2018
Had a great time. Steve is no nice and accommodating. Will definitely return. Maybe even next week.

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. Thank you! Nancy and Bob Young

by janfan1322 on Sep 10, 2018
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.

by cathf21 on Aug 25, 2018
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 jschaefer on Aug 13, 2018
Very friendly and helpful staff

by tomcaporale on Aug 12, 2018
Very friendly and helpful staff. Made for a great weekend.

by jim_lorello on Aug 11, 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.

by tfarber34 on Jul 22, 2018
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!

Sailors Haven -- The Crown Jewel of FINS Sailors Haven is home to one of the best known areas of Fire Island National Seashore—the Sunken Forest. It is located near the center of the island, across the Great South Bay from Sayville, New York. It is accessible by Sayville Ferry, private boat, and foot only.

The well-developed secondary dune system and rare maritime holly forest are among the natural features at this site. Join a ranger-guided tour of the globally-rare Sunken Forest, seine in the Great South Bay, or comb the beach for sea shells. Explore the touch table and fish tanks in the visitor center or grab a bite to eat, glass of wine or frozen cocktail at the Sassyfras cafe at the Sunken Forest and a souvenir the gift shop.

In addition to a one and a half mile long boardwalk trail through the Sunken Forest, Sailors Haven also offers a visitor center; snack bar; gift shop; picnic tables and grills; lifeguarded beach in summer; a 45-slip public marina with electricity, water, restrooms and showers.

The Sailors Haven Marina can accommodate boats with beams between 10 and 18 feet with a five foot draft. The majority of slips are between 10 and 14 feet wide. All slips have electric and water (extra fee charged). There is a 14-day limit for each stay but you can reserve often. Request a reservation with us today!

Visitor services are open 7 days per week including the Sassyfras cafe & snack bar at Sunken Forest, a bar with beer, wine, & frozen cocktails, scoop ice cream and a general store.

Live Music, Programming & Kid's Birthday Parties in the National Park We have live music scheduled for most weekends summer and shoulder seasons. We have scheduled three @fishguyphotos multi-media wildlife presentations at Sailors Haven and three more at Watch Hill. All ages love the programs all about wildlife in FINS -- Exploring Long Island's Underwater World, Birding with the Fish Guy, From Plankton to Whales-Why Our Waters Are Worth Protecting, and Long Island's White Shark Research!

Children Birthday Parties in the Park are our exciting new offering for children to enjoy their birthday day not only at the beach but in a National Park, learning about its resources. Contact us for affordable packages that include lunch and ice cream under our shaded pavilion at the Sassyfras. Party times may be coordinated with free National Seashore interpretive ranger guided programming such as seining and the Sunken Forest nature walk, hands on interpretive FINS Visitor Center and, of course, becoming a Junior Ranger!


Pets are Welcome! Pets are not permitted on the ocean beach at Sailors Haven from March 15 through Labor Day but are permitted elsewhere. You're welcome to bring your dog, but remember that this may restrict your options for enjoyment of Sailors Haven. Pets must always be leashed, and you're required to properly dispose of your pet's excrement.

Enjoy all Fire Island has to Offer but Affordably Sailors Haven has regularly scheduled water taxi service to most communities on Fire Island from Kismet/Saltaire/Fair Harbor/Atlantique to Ocean Beach/Seaview/Ocean Bay Park to Cherry Grove/Fire Island Pines with service to Watch Hill by request. Cherry Grove is a short walk, Point of Woods and Ocean Bay Park a little longer.

Sailors Haven and Watch Hill are two of the more affordable marinas on Fire Island without the resident restrictions of Atlantique and Davis Park.

Catering & Special Events We are authorized by FINS to do special events from birthdays & anniversaries, non-profits, company picnics, boating clubs, graduation parties, and engagements to weddings. Please contact us for special events.

Weekend & Holiday "Minimum Rates"
Allow us to clarify our weekend rates. There are NO rate minimums for same-day bookings in the peak summer season nor is there ever a rate minimum for advance or same-day bookings in the shoulder seasons, except for Memorial Day weekend. In other words, FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVE boaters can book one weekend night on a summer weekend or reserve day of. If the sun’s out, swing by!

For advance booking only, Summer weekends (F,S,S) have a two day rate minimum, Memorial Day weekend a three day rate minimum, and 4th of July & Labor Day holiday weeks are a four day rate minimum. In other words, it's best to book the minimum number of days in these periods to get the best value but boaters are not limited in booking fewer days than the minimum rate. Without this type of advance reservation restriction, boaters who want to book the whole weekend or holiday period in advance would be blocked by boaters taking one night, both boaters and the operator would be impacted negatively and advance reservations would not be sustainable. The boater looking for one night who does not wish to pay the minimum rate (when applies) is best served by FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVE and same day reservations (no restrictions).

Additionally, as indicated in the Cancellation Policy (link below), for advance reservations for 4th of July & Labor Day holiday weeks your initial deposit is refundable (minus the $10 non-refundable reservation fee) only if you cancel fourteen (14) days or more prior to your reservation arrival time and the regular cancellation schedule for partial refunding of initial deposit does not apply. No shows without cancellation prior to arrival time are still subject to the full reservation payment for these two holiday periods as with any reservation.

Booking Info

Our marinas have had recent electrical upgrades with GFI protected circuits and boats should be tested for ground faults prior to arrival.
