The marina is very well maintained and nice. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The GEM electric cars are a lot of fun and a good way to get around the island. Thank you for a great trip!
Thanks so much for the wonderful review! We hope to have you back again this season for another great trip!

Rebecca was very helpful when I made a reservation for the wrong day. She fixed out and we stayed an extra night.
Very nice docks. They are Piers not floating. Easy docking between poles.
Thanks for the kind words :) glad you had a great stay with us and we hope to have you back again!!
by yolodebbie on Sep 06, 2021
Great location for this cute marina. Everything was so clean... The docks, bathrooms, pool, and patio area. Rebecca was helpful with my Dockwa reservation... Very flexible! Dock hands were very helpful, especially Deckland! The shuttle service is so convenient. Can't wait to return again! Thanks everyone.
So glad you had a memorable stay with us! We look forward to having you back with us again!!

Kathy was terrific in providing assistance whenever it was needed. She should be recognized for a outstanding customer service.
by samuelcabot on Aug 21, 2021
The people at Coecles Marina could not have been nicer or more helpful. They provide a van to take you anywhere on the island. We will go back there anytime.
Thank you for the kind review! We are so glad you had such a great stay with us and we certainly hope to have you back again!!

We arrived at 7:30 pm, unaware that they close at 5 pm. Ended up taking any mooring we found unoccupied. Had a little trouble going in at low tide, in an unmarked channel.
They, or DOCKWA, should have informed us about these things as soon as I paid for the mooring or at least the day before.
Checked with them in the morning to find out they have no launch service.
There must be some "truth in booking", that DockWa is responsible for.
We're sorry you had some issues with your stay. We spoke yesterday, but I want to be transparent about how this event played out. All boats with a draft in excess of 5' get a call from someone in the front office - we called but could not reach you. During the phone call we also try to review our facilities hours and general information if our guests are arriving after hours. On our Dockwa page it's clearly stated that we have no launch service. We don't maintain the channel, but we do post a guide with specific advise on how to navigate from the entrance of the harbor to our facility. After booking our WiFi information is issued via the conformation email from Dockwa.
We're going to add some additional information to our Dockwa page to potentially prevent future occurrences like this one.
Please feel free to reach me if you have any more questions

Great staff. Accommodated my last minute request to change my reservation from mooring to slip since my generator unexpectedly decided not to function. What might have been a difficult situation instead became the perfect start of a very enjoyable weekend.
So glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope to see you back again, thank you for the wonderful review!
by choddino on Jul 24, 2021
Beautiful location. Bathrooms are very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. We blew our power inverter in the first day there and they arranged transportation for us to pick up a new one.
Always happy to help when we can, hope to have you back again!
by geodesign2000 on Jul 21, 2021
The marina is located in a beautiful spot in the harbor and was a picture perfect place to dock and stay overnight. The staff are soooo nice and helpful and the place is spotless and really well organized. We plan to stay there again in the near future.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review!! We're so happy to have made your stay with us so great! See you again soon :)
by markeosmer on Jul 16, 2021
Clean well run marina with courteous friendly staff shuttle service to town was really a bonus highly recommended
Hope to see you back again!!
by bobg on Jul 11, 2021
Location is great. Dock staff was very helpful. Bathrooms could be cleaner and kept up with better. Garbage pails in bathrooms we’re full and the men’s room by the pool had no soap in the dispenser. They close the pool at 5:00 even though there’s plenty of great swim time left on a July evening. Shower is good though! Would still return because the spot is very nice.
Thanks for taking time out to leave a review. Hope to make your next stay with us even better! See you again this season :)
by laureley on Jul 11, 2021
Very peaceful. Dock hands were great, pool was very nice, nice picnic area along the water. Bathrooms were clean. Lovely stay.

Pool clean and refreshing

Can’t get enough of Coecles! Thank you for making our cruise always so special!
Thanks for the review! Hope to have you back at Coecles again! :)
by greengrass on Jun 21, 2021
The marina is clean, helpful, and provides shuttle service in and out of town. I would plan to arrive at high tide though. The harbor isn’t terribly well marked and there were a couple of tense moments coming in during a low tide.
Thank you for a great review!
by svtranquilo on Jun 20, 2021
Rebecca was awesome and made us feel at home
Thanks for the kind words, hope to have you back again this season!
by mentalblock on Jun 20, 2021
First of all, the staff are great. No problem there. The heads and showers are also very nice. We were disappointed that the pool is not open until July 4 as it was a hot weekend in mid June and I booked the Friday and Saturday nights assuming, yes, my bad, that it would be open. Also the place could use a little sprucing up. It is a nice location if you bring bikes as we did. They do rent them. No food offerings but cold drinks in the store. ASK
We appreciate you taking the time to give us a review. Sorry that the pool was not open, but as you saw we still have few boats on land in that area and our pool never opens before 4th of July - which we make sure to call and let everyone know before booking is confirmed. We usually have snacks in the store but again, we are just getting our ship store up and running for the season (which for us, doesn't really begin until July). We also have a complimentary shuttle service to take you to get provisions or go out to eat. The last time you stayed with us was in August last year, so definitely by then we were up and in full swing. We do hope you come back to stay with us again!

Couldn't have had more personal treatment. We arrived shortly before closing but Eileen took the time to make sure we had everything we needed to have a wonderful experience on our trip to Shelter.
SO happy you guys had a wonderful time with us. Thanks for the kind review!!

Thanks for a great review!! Hope to see you again next summer!:)

Thanks for the great review! hope to have you back again! :)
by bensails48 on Sep 04, 2020
A must see. Coeckles is very well protected in any weather, and extremely picturesque.
Moorings all have high top pickups
and are well maintained if a bit close.
Shoreside facilities are clean, pool inviting, and Shelter Island a very special place.
Happy to hear you had a great stay with us! hope to have you back again next year :)
by velocity on Sep 01, 2020
Accommodative is the best word to describe this staff! A true gem is the best word to this marina. We had a wonderful stay here and will definitely make it a tradition. Clean, terrific location and really friendly dock neighbors.
Thank you for the kind words! We're thrilled to know you had a great time with us. We hope to have you back again! :)
by doral_310 on Aug 27, 2020
Super relaxing, a great place to spend a night or two. Great views , well protected. Staff very helpful. Rented a Gem car and explored the island. We WILL be back!!!!
Glad to hear you had such a wonderful time!! We look forward to having you back again :)
by josemarine on Aug 24, 2020
We took full advantage of everything this great Marina had to offer. Pool, BBQ area and facilities where great!! The bikes and golf carts they offer where a fun way to get around the island. The staff was extremely helpful and super courteous!!
Thanks for the wonderful review!! We are so happy you had such a great time with us, we hope to have you back again! :)
by genm on Aug 23, 2020
Everyone very helpful and friendly. Beautiful island to bike around. Pool nice and refreshing on a hot day.
Facilities very clean.
We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again :)
by chowland0413 on Aug 20, 2020
The harbor is beautiful in a bucolic setting. The lack of amenities such as launch service or pumpout boat were overcome by the hospitality. We were given a ride into the IGA grocery store by an employee of the marina who waited while we grocery shopped (short list) and brought us back to the marina. Nancy in the office was informative and very hospitable. A word of caution, we used the tide chart for the race in Eldridge‘s book. This was off by an hour and a half and we skipped along the bottom getting in as this was a very shallow harbor and we only draw 6 feet.
Thanks for checking our place out. I'm glad we were able to provide a ride to our local grocery store. Nancy also doesn't work here anymore, but I'm sure Eileen or Rebecca were just as helpful!
by lplecity on Aug 12, 2020
Nice marina. Pool clean as well as showers. Nice electric cars to go into town. However the electric cars only lasted 2 hours and really didn’t find anyplace to plug in to recharge in town. Besides that great place to stay. Staff very accommodating
Thanks for staying with us, hope you come again!
by horizon8228 on Aug 10, 2020
It's a nice place to visit. The GEM cars are so fun to rent. Be sure to reserve early. The bathrooms are clean but there's no AC in them so very hot and humid. Pool closes at 5 pm. Marina offers complimentary ride to some local sites or the ferry but you must return by 5. Overall a great place to chill. Groups can enjoy the grilling and dining area outside. Great for a rendezvous. Everyone was very nice.
Glad you had a great stay with us, hope to have you back here!
by gabrielmatthias on Aug 04, 2020
A nice, quiet, and well protected spot. The marina staff was very friendly and helpful. We'll be back
Glad you enjoyed your stay and the marina staff was able to help!
by captaingb43 on Aug 03, 2020
Staff very accommodating. Kids loved pool. Availability for rent of electric car and bikes a real plus. Miniature golf within walking distance was also nice.
We're happy you enjoyed your stay - the electric cars are a fun way to explore this island :)
by ferrillo on Aug 02, 2020
Excellent staff. Our dingy motor died and left our kids on the beach: The dockmaster was nice enough to go and retrieve them
Great trip and we will be back
So glad you enjoyed your time here!
by adelboat on Jul 31, 2020
Classic boat yard - they make the Shelter Island Runabout (favored by Billy Joel) and has a great reputation for yacht maintenance (fortunately we did not need).
We loved Coecles Harbor, and they are at the end of it - be brave about shallow water. Location is amazing - gorgeous coves, etc. We could dinghy to the kayak rental 'next door' and had a great day exploring the area. This was after a week on the water, so we appreciated the fuel dock, head pump-out, fresh water, and laundry - boat and crew refreshed! There are bike and car rentals for getting to town (a couple miles away) or for exploring the island by land. There is also a small chandlery.
Thanks for spending time with us! Hope we see you again :)
by bicred on Jul 27, 2020
Entrance to channel poorly marked.
Sorry to hear that the channel was poorly marked. Since we're not responsible for the channel markers, would you consider basing your review to reflect our facility and staff? We're also familiar with the bay constable responsible for positioning and reporting on the markers. If you want to discuss the position of the channel markers, I would be happy to pass that information on to the bay constable (Schuyler Needham - 631.749.0700 Ext 14). Thanks for staying with us!

Clean, friendly, great location.
One of our favorite destinations.
Clean bathrooms. Great people.
Will accommodate almost anything you ask. Rental smart cars, great pool, great bike riding. Rebecca couldn’t have been nicer.
Thanks for the kind words! Glad you could spend some time with us
by cbleuher on Sep 12, 2019
Nice and quiet at the marina in September, just the way we like it! I appreciated the fact that they obliged my request for a T head spot on the dock. There was plenty of help tying up and they lent me an extra electrical cable when mine wouldn't fit into the enclosure.
Thanks for the kind words @cbleuher. Anything we can do to help make your stay with us as great as can be. Hope to see you again in the coming seasons!

I had steering gear work done at Coecles Harbor Marina. The work was completed on budget, on time. A job well done. Thank you
Glad you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again soon :)
by esprit2019 on Sep 01, 2019
Everything about Coecles Harbor was first rate except, and it is a big except, the dinghy dock, which is downright dangerous. Nice facilities, nice folks - they even will shuttle you to various destinations, but I'll won't be back until that dinghy dock is redone.
My name is Connor and I am the service manager here at Coecles Harbor Marina. I apologize if you felt that our docks were unsafe, we service them before they go in every spring and even added an extension to the dock to accommodate our transient customers. We also replaced the ramp for a wider aluminum ramp, rebuilt the landing and added a wood ramp with non skid paint and a railing. Can you please clarify why you felt the dinghy dock was "dangerous" so that I can resolve the issue for next spring. Thank you.
by jpaganetti on Aug 27, 2019
Very accommodating and made good recommendations for places to eat.
We're lucky to have some of the great food options that we do! Thanks for sharing, hope to see you again.

by winegirl on Aug 17, 2019
Absolutely beautiful. We rented an electric car at the marina office and saw a bit of the island and that was thoroughly enjoyable! Nice pool area and immaculate head facilities. Free Keurig coffee in the morning! Will definitely go back.
Thank you for your kind words! We are happy to hear you had a wonderful time with us and we definitely hope you come back again! :)
by jworth3 on Aug 14, 2019
Took a mooring. $72 is a little pricey for no launch service. This is a pretty and very quiet harbor. Nice break from the crowds.
Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, we really appreciate it. We do hope you come back and stay with us again. Glad you were able to enjoy the peace and quiet that our harbor offers!
by obmd1 on Aug 02, 2019
This is my new favorite place. Quiet. Dock staff (Ethan (#goblue)) that’s the most helpful and friendly on the east coast. Shuttle to twin, rental bikes, rental cars, a pool, laundry all right there. I can’t wait to go back. (PS, your shoal draft boat is fine in there).
We are thrilled to hear you had a great time with us :). Thank you for the kind words and we hope to see you back again soon!
by wires on Jul 29, 2019
Very quiet, beautiful harbor. The marina staff was helpful about information, and it was nice to get dropped off at a local restaurant. However, we learned the place was not open yet. Call first. Don't believe Yelp website. So, we waited an hour and had a good meal. The marina called us before confirmation to be certain we knew they did not have launch service. The staff goes home at 5:PM, but the shower/restroom facilities were open. The town dock a little distance from the marina is not open to non residents, so the marina is your only safe link to the shore. Perhaps we missed it, but a little flyer about that and other clues to this nice secluded location might be helpful. We were placed on a perfect mooring well spaced, and their directions with the reservation made the narrow entrance to the harbor easy to navigate. They have WiFi, but we forgot to ask for the password, and that could have been included in a potential welcome flyer. I would welcome a little later check out time. As check in time is 1:PM it seems 11:AM is early to leave. It is not as though they have to change the linen, vacuum the rug, wipe down the shower and stock toilet paper! It seems this time is standard now most everywhere, but unnecessary in my opinion. We certainly would return for a quiet stay.
@wires, glad you were happy with your mooring space and that we could help you! Unfortunately a launch service is not within our policy but we do try to make that clear on Dockwa and our website . My apologies that you did not receive a welcome pamphlet, we usually give them out along with a map of the island and info on our marina. As for check in/out times, we always try to accommodate our customers if someone needs to arrive earlier or check out later. If the space is unoccupied during your arrival/departure we would be more than happy to extend the check in/out time if we are notified a few days in advance.
We hope to see you back again here at Coecles Harbor! Happy rest of summer!
by rharag on Jul 28, 2019
A big Thank You to the folks at Coecles - first the marina is great in terms of location and overall scenery, quiet and calm, easy to get to with the tides. Second - I have noting but great experience with the staff - I got caught in a squall just off-Shelter Island this summer and the gusts ripped a hole in my Jib. After speaking with Schuyler he took a quick look, helped me get the sale down, shipped it to a sail loft in Greenport and called me next day that the sail is done and helped me put it back on, the cost of the whole thing was minimal. Overall I had a great experience, everyone around the marina was very helpful and forthcoming, communication was very clear and efficient, it gave me a lot of comfort in a situation where I did not have many resources around. Coecles is an awesome quiet place, I will definitely be back.
Thank you for the kind words. We are always happy to help when we can and are glad you had a great time here with us at Coecles Harbor. We look forward to having you back again soon!
by fouramelia4 on Jul 13, 2019
This is our second time staying at Coecles Harbor Marina. The facility is outstanding! Outdoor pool. Bicycles to rent, Electric cars to rent and van service to area beaches and restaurants. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Hope to see you back again in the summers ahead!
by airbus on Jul 03, 2019
Our stay at Coecles was fantastic. We have been here several times and will continue to visit whenever we can. The staff is very helpful and friendly and very attentive to our needs. I needed a repair to a wind instrument at the top of our mast and although the crew was very busy with regular customers Skyler and Conner took the time to operate a crane and hoist Skyler for the repair at very reasonable rates. Thanks guys! I highly recommend Coecles Marina
Glad you had a great stay with us. We are always happy to help when we can. Hope to see you back again soon!
by searay5000 on Sep 20, 2018
Terrific facility and a beautiful location on Coecles Harbor. Also a working boatyard and builder. We snooped around CH Yacht builders and it was so interesting to see them constructing a 38 Shelter Is runabout. Friendly staff!
Thanks for visiting us! No need to snoop CH Marine next time, come find me (Schuyler) and I'd be happy to give you a tour. We're proud of the boats we produce and happy to show them off.
by zlatkin11 on Aug 10, 2018
It's always a pleasure to stay at Coecles Harbor. The docking team is friendly and helpful, and Shelter Island is a gem Also, if you have a problem to fix, they have a knowledgeable team that can help.
Thanks for the kind words. Hope to see you again soon!
by michaelrg18 on Aug 10, 2018
No pumpout. Apparently not enough transients to getting the pumpout fixed. No launch. Impressive repair/restoration facility.
Thanks for visiting! Our pump out motor, which was new last year, failed and has a 8-week lead time for a replacement. We're doing our best to correct the issue and we're getting a spare motor to avoid any outage in the future. Hope to see you again. UPDATE - the new pump out motor arrived yesterday and has been installed. We're ordering a spare motor to prevent an outage like this in the future.

Excellent all around. Been to Coecles Harbor many times. Excellent facilities and friendly staff. They do need a bit more room on the dinghy dock.
by capedory300ms on Jun 02, 2012
I've been coming out to Coecles Harbor Marina as a transient since 1998. First with a 38' Egg Harbor, now with a 30' Cape Dory sailboat.
We just booked our first whole season here in no small part because they do such a great job.
Over the years and in all my travels I can say that this is one of the most pleasant places my family has ever stayed. The staff is very friendly and extraordinarily helpful, my son always finds someone to hang out with. They really go the extra distance to take care of of their guests!
by pipe_dream_2 on Aug 22, 2011
John, their electricial, is absolutely the best!!!!! Our boat had been diagnosed by S&S Marine from Old Saybrook as needing a new alternator and voltage regulator. Twenty minutes after arrival John arrived onboard and tested the system. I did not need a new $1200 system...a previous electrician had neglected to reconnect two grounding wires to the alternator. I was convinced I needed a new system as a result of the S&S's diagnsis...John could have sold me the new system but simply charged me for labor and a stainless steel nut! Honesty at it's best! I would recommend him to any sailor needing electrical repairs.
Additionally, while John was working on my boat...my wife used the laundry facilities to tidy us up. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. My compliments.
All I can say Thumbs Up for the entire crew at Cockles!!!!!
by LIBoatLover on Jul 11, 2011
Having stayed at Coecles Harbor numerous times I cant imagine why anyone would give this gem one star. Maybe those two negative reviewers below have ulterior motives? Anyway, the facilities are spotless, the marina staff is courteous and extremely helpful and the boatyard takes care of the nicest collection of Hinckleys and Herreshoffs youll ever see collected in one place. Between the pool, laundry, picnic area and transportation options listed below what more could one want? We rented one of their electric cars and had a blast touring around the island. The two restaurants we tried were fantastic and the kids even got to play mini golf which is just a short walk up the street from the marina. If you are looking for a peaceful spot with beautiful natural surroundings give Coecles a try, you wont be disappointed.
by sinterklaas on Oct 23, 2010
I would be hard pressed to give a Marina a better rating than Coecles Harbor. The staff is incredibly, professional, friendly, and helpful. I stopped by here for what I had originally planned on being a few days but ended up leaving my boat here for a few weeks. The harbor is very well protected and the marina facilities are extremely well maintained. Coecles Harbor Marina was a great joy to visit and I look forward to visiting again. The only downside was having to leave to go home!!
