The only issue difficulty finding a place to park the dinghy.

Good moorings with good tackle. Launch was clean and prompt. The launch captain was pleasant and courteous.

Bought the boat in PJ 7 years ago, nice to return to an area we are familiar with and to meet old friends.

These mooring balls have plenty of swing room for our 54’ boat - not sure how many they have for our size boat. The ball has 2 mooring eyes which make the process of hooking up to it simpler than just the 1 eye set-ups. The fee includes the water taxi so we like to take that into the cute town. The ferry boats run often, but we did not experience any wake from them. Winds were light when we were there so we had a very calm night.

Excellent service. Launchpad was there at the time we needed. Crew was friendly.

Great prices for a mooring. But no dinghy dock. The launch service can take 10 minutes to arrive. We use our dinghy. But there isn’t a dock to tie up.

Nice operation. Flexible cancellation policy is a big plus. Launch was prompt and included in price. The field is close to the pier which is convenient but as a result a lot of wakes from inconsiderate boats and the ferry.

Great place to visit.

Quiet and calm. Very nice down.

Pretty harbor. No buoy on short mooring pennant. Mooring ball completely underwater at high tide. Danfords Hotel and Marina apparently manage moorings, but they act like they don’t and discourage use of marina itself (e.g. dingy dock, bathrooms, showers, etc.) Prompt free town launch service. Town super crowded on Saturday night with huge ferry crowds from Bridgeport, CT.
Marina Response:
Hi Bob, Sorry the stay wasn't better for you. Once in a while the mooring will get tangled up on itself and will pull the ball under. It's a quick fix. Danford's has nothing to do with the moorings, we are a privately run company. We could have gotten you into the Town bathrooms and showers. I am glad to hear or launch was prompt that I can control. Port Jeff is a popular destination in the summer so weekends are crowded. Hopefully you will come back and give us another chance to make things right. Thanks, Pete

Calm, quiet night’s rest

Nice place to visit. The outer harbor is scenic, and the inner harbor more industrial. The folks running the launch and moorings were easy to work with and the price was reasonable. The town has lots of sights and restaurants convenient to walking.

by Carter B. - Verified user on Aug 19, 2023
Exactly as advertised, well-maintained moorings. Helpful prompt directions via VHF 68 once I was in the harbor. Bridles were too short for my vessel so I just used my own mooring lines as extensions. This is a working port so don't expect a scenic retreat; the ferry to Bridgeport announces its departure with a long blast and three shorter ones to indicate astern propulsion. If this doesn't wake you from your afternoon nap, nothing will. But it's a practical stop, particularly in a southerly blow or if you need to get the LIRR train to NYC.

Quick confirmation and great launch services.

by Michael A. - Verified user on Aug 17, 2023
Very convenient. Launch service is terrific. Friendly. The harbor can be a little loud but not related to the mooring service.

by Tricia S. - Verified user on Aug 15, 2023
The launch operators are friendly and helpful. Only 4 stars because the mooring field is super noisy, which is beyond the launch drivers’ control.

by Stefan m. - Verified user on Aug 13, 2023
Pt. Jeff. Launch service is first rate, quick, attentive and very professional. Recommend Pt. Jeff launch service to anyone thinking of spending a few days at Pt. Jeff.

by Richard A. - Verified user on Aug 12, 2023
The harbormaster accommodated my request for a mooring on short notice.

by John P. - Verified user on Aug 11, 2023
Great launch service and time of operation. Nice the cost was included in the mooring fee which was reasonable considering.
