Our experience with Port Jefferson Launch was excellent. The instructions to find our buoy were perfect. The team was very responsive, timely, and managed our expectations perfectly. Would definitely stay on their moorings again. The town managed showers and laundry served their purpose, but are a bit less inviting than other places we’ve been. Overall an excellent experience and I’d stay here again

First time in Port Jeff. We bought an inflatable there and made a weekend trip to pick it up. Great shops, food drinks and atmosphere . The dog beach was fantastic! Easy to book Helpful launch drivers Need the launch since there’s no public dingy dock.

Have stayed here many times , and do not understand the negative comments about Port Jefferson The Moorings/Luanch operator responded immediately and in the past in nasty weather came out to meet us to guide us to a mooring ball. The pump out boat responded immediately a serviced us with a smile and 'happy to be of service' attitude. The launch driver was friendly, showed us where the water dock was and helped us once at the dock. Store owners on shore have always been friendly and welcoming. Ok, the ferry is a bit loud at times, but that is not a reflection on the Port Jefferson Moorings and Launch teams.

PJ is a great stop and the moorings are well marked. Danfords can get a bit loud but it’s the summer and to be expected. The launch runs well and we never waited long to get picked up. Will stay again.

We enjoyed our short stay. The launch to get us to shore was prompt and courteous. We used the laundry facilities at the dock master building. It was clean and reasonably priced. Two washers, two dryers. $1.75 to wash, $1.50 to dry. Large table to fold. Thank you Port Jeff!

I have stayed there several times and enjoyed the service. This time VERY DISAPPOINTED! Granted early season, but first, their ice machine was not yet working, but more annoying, the shower facility in the Dockmaster office was locked by a dead bolt even though we had the combo because no one was in the office. In the past this facility was always available to paying mooring customers. When we did get in following morning showers were filthy - had not been cleaned since???? (empty shampoo bottles on shower floor and a large wad of hair - disgusting! If showers/toilet not available 24/7, web site should say so. If I knew I would have gone to Port Jefferson Yacht Club nearby.

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.

Friendly & prompt service.

We love using Port Launch. They do a great job!

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.
