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!
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!!!!!
Having stayed at Coecles Harbor numerous times I can’t 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 Herreshoff’s you’ll 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 won’t be disappointed.
This marina was good in its day, but things are horrible there now. It is very poorly maintained, and god help you if you have to have a repair or service there. They overcharge and misdiagnose. Locals on Shelter Island, Greenport and Sag Harbor know to stay away and head to any other marina. We had service at Island Boat Yard and were very happy, after they fixed what Coecles had screwed up.
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!!
Marina lack amenities and is not very well maintained. The dock staff is clueless for the most part and they have no gas anymore, diesel only. There are def better places to keep your boat in the area. and im pretty sure the big boat at the end pumps out their waste tanks at the dock.
