Was the most enjoyable experience we had this summer. Big and crew are some of the most helpful people we have met. This is a great time to visit Shelter Island.
We will be back next year.

Charming location - quiet and scenic with a great restaurant on site. One of the staff connected us with a local resident for hire who drove us to various destinations for the day. What an unexpected bonus for our trip!!

Was pretty good overall . WiFi password was not given and no one seemed to know it .
Did not answer VHF station when we were pulling in . Had to call on my cell phone .
Those are minor . Over all very good. We will return .

Great marina with a fantastic restaurant onsite as well

Probably the best marina between the forks. The best dock hands for sure.

The Marina and staff were excellent. Salt was a great
Place to eat.

Staff attentive and frendly. Will return next season for longer stay. Plenty to do inside marina. Clean and well groomed grounds. Docks are concrete floating for easy docking on and off boat.

Excellent marina! Friendly staff, very accommodating to our boat club. Dock staff are all top notch! Some of the best dock hands we’ve ever had. We absolutely love this marina & will be back for sure.
by jimbo4212 on Jul 22, 2019
Marina was great. Very clean and has everything you need for a family stay. Restaurant, pool, bar and games. Even though we were there as transients The staff treated us like we were multi-million dollar boat owners. Highly recommend to everyone.
by rjohnsonisc on Jul 21, 2019
Hands down our favorite spot between the forks. Best dock master (Bix) and crew we have ever come across. See you guys in 11 months and 3 weeks. ;)

Always a great experience at Island Boat Yard. Marina is clean and well-equipped, food is consistently good and the views are gorgeous.
by rxtosea on Jul 20, 2019
Great restaurant and deckhands even offer to come onboard to help you tie up. Fantastic service
by greengrass on Jul 15, 2019
A little difficult to get into at low tide, especially with traffic, but once we were docked, it was a pleasurable experience through and through. SALT was booked solid, so a warning to book ahead would be nice, but the Shipwreck bar was delicious, nice live music, great service. We will be back.
by georgeviking on Jul 15, 2019
Always a favorite stay, marina hosts a great restaurant, salt...the shipwreck bar is always great fun. The staff is absolutely the friendliest and enjoyable at any marina.......love sitting by the pool. Bicks the dockmaster will personally see that your stay is magnificent. With our busy schedule we WILL make time to return.
by searaykathy on Jul 08, 2019

Have stayed here a few times now and it gets better every time. The staff is top notch, facilities are above average and the restaurant Salt was great. A little piece of heaven
by dede51866 on Aug 28, 2018
What a great marina!! Great location, easy in, easy out, with such nice and helpful dock staff. Great restaurant (SALT) and a fun boat shaped bar with live music!! Will definitely be back!! ⚓️
by lkatz99 on Aug 23, 2018
Island Boatyard never fails. Great Marina, Well run. Dockmaster (Bix) helpful and accomodative. Third year visiting. We will be back for a 4th.
by tbm930 on Aug 19, 2018
The best staff we have ever seen, Quin JT And Mike couldn’t have been more helpful, they just jumped on the boat, tied every line , handled our dingy coming and going. Great pool entertainment, and Salt has the best calamari on the planet. Probably our favorite boating location
by ladyk on Aug 13, 2018
Dock guys great..Dockmaster incredibile..Bix is his name..Great guy..*complaint..no wifi have to upgrade so it reaches the wholedock**N0 wifi is a prob
by ezkwiatkowski on Aug 05, 2018
Love the peaceful, get away from it all beautiful setting. Channel well marked. Staff was very helpful. Transient docks near gas dock are rough when windy out of south / west. $15 wine in small plastic cups at dockside bar was pricey.
by dmelnick on Jul 21, 2018
This was our first boat trip to shelter island. The staff at island boatyard was kind and curtius. The marina and restaurant are very nice with clean facilities.
by mentalblock on Jul 14, 2018
Well kept marina. Staff is great. Nice pool. Good amenities. Wish they had a place to get a coffee. As nice as it is, it is still a little pricey.
by tyler993 on Jul 08, 2018
Great spot as a base to explore Sag and Greenport. Docks are fine. Bathrooms good. Pool above average. Make reservations at Salt restaurant beforehand. Would definitely go back.
by henrysmom on Jul 07, 2018
So friendly; great restaurant. Pool small but nice. Shuttle service available limited hours, but island taxi is also available. Relaxed atmosphere.

Excellent marina with friendly staff.
by wbasil on May 29, 2018
This is definitely a hidden gem. The restaurant and people were very polite & accommodating. The booking staff were very easy to deal with. The only item to keep in mind is when docking at the bulkhead, the tied change makes it a little difficult to step off the boat. At low tied my Dad needed to use a ladder to get off the boat which made it a little challenging.
by kencain54 on Sep 04, 2017
I can't say enough about the IBY. By far our favorite marina on Long Island. Salt is awesome. The dock hands are friendly and super helpful. The shuttle was great and we even took a detour to show us some places we hadn't seen before. We will be back again for sure.
by kheck64 on Aug 26, 2017
Great place to relax for a few days. Been here several times now. Floating docks, great views. The free shuttle to town is a great as are restaurant and shipwreck bar.
by tlrlc on Aug 24, 2017
we have stayed here before, and have always been happy, however this time we took a day trip and upon returning as we were approaching our slip we were informed someone took our slip and the dockmasters allowed the person to stay so we were moved. (the boat was smaller than mine so it was not a slip size problem) not the end of the world however it would have been nice to keep our slip or be notified before i was committed to that alleyway. (we were next to our friends that we traveled there with) Garbage cans are no where to be found at the marina only a dumpster across the lot. The marina is protected and clean, shuttle service is nice feature.
by cwohlberg on Aug 22, 2017
Easy location to find, nice pool, good restaurant.
Have been there before and will go again.
by reelmagic on Aug 09, 2017
Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Marina and bathrooms very clean.... SALT restaurant great, especially the Lobster Roll.... Suggest the marina add hooks in the bathrooms for clothing when taking a shower.
by sealy21 on Aug 01, 2017
The marina was beautiful and accommodating Provided shuttle service anytime into town and pick up. Salt restaurant was great The staff was amazing especially Scarlett, she was so helpful and knowledgeable. We'll. E back again

Fun stuff for the kids. Bar and resturaunt were very good and accommodating. Bar games (corn hole, ringo, ladder toss) made the adults happy. The dock attendants were amazing. Super friendly and outgoing as well as very knowledgeable with docking, local venues and all things shelter island. The dock attendants made our stay a solid 5 star experience. Thanks JT and Bix. Reel Busy had a great time. Thanks for the tender tow on the whaler.
by liwoapres on Jul 10, 2017
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dockhands were very attentive to arriving boats to help them dock. Many times they were getting on the boats that were already in slips to fend off when boats attempting to dock were having trouble.
The stay was very peaceful and relaxing.
There were a few maintenance issues, the bathroom/shower facility for the marina had no towel or clothing hooks so when you took a shower there was no place to hang your clothes and towel except to put them in the sink. It looked like there had been one there in the past as there were holes in the wall outside the shower stall. In the bathroom/ pool-house the urinal was broken for days. It was covered with a large black plastic bag. There was a fundraiser party on Friday for the Shelter Island Fireworks, so you had two to three hundred people using that bathroom and it had one working toilet in the men's room.
Towel hooks and broken urinals shouldn't go unaddressed for four days.
The restroom/ shower facility for the marina should be expanded, to have one toilet and one shower as a single use facility meant if one person was taking a shower there was no access to the toilet. A few minor issues but when you are paying top dollar for a transient slip you should expect the facilities to be top notch as well.
