Excellent mooring. Prompt and courteous launch service. Very adequate shower room at Harbormaster building. Get combo from launch operator. Expect noise and wake from ferries, but gets quiet late in the evening. Enjoyed a great dinner at The Fifth Season restaurant.
Only complaints are that launch service ended at 2000 (in October) and there is no town dinghy dock. Surreptitiously docked at a marina hoping that my dink wouldn’t get impounded.

Zach the launch driver was great, I forgot my phone so he agreeed to pick me up at a given time, and also helped me get ice. Very prompt on his pick ups. On the other hand the fuel dock at Danforths left much to be desired. The dock hand was awesome however the price you pay for fuel you would expect that there would be no nails sticking out of piling sand that their fenders would have been deployed right to keep you from banging into dock.

Great service on the taxi and the mooring field is well laid out with easy in and out access to the canal. Only drawback and it isn't their fault is the ferry horns and the plant noises but you can't do anything about it so soon it becomes background noise and not so bothersome.

Nice mooring field, did have to wait more than 1/2 hour for a ride in once, all other pickups were very timely, would definitely come back

It was a great day, the reservation through Dockwa was perfect. We’ll be back!

Facilities are far from the drop-off dock which is right next to the ferry dock. The launch service only runs until 10pm on weekdays even on July 3rd before the holiday.

I believe having two facilities in one location with the same name is very confusing. I thought I was making a reservation at the Port Jeff yacht club but found out I made it at the Port Jeff launch and water taxi facility. I believe this should be better explained since I was not the only boat in my group that did not wind up at the facility they intended to be at.
I agree with you sloopquest. The Port Jeff Launch service has been around for as long as I can remember. It was only about 3 years ago that the Setauket Yacht club changed there name to the Port Jeff Yacht club and it has been very confusing. I do hope you had a good stay with us. If we can be of any help let us know.

Easy booking and Jim came out on the launch to help find the right mooring. Lots of easy walking in the town and the launch is readily available until 6pm to help you get back and forth.
