We do advertise that free WiFi is available at the docks. What slip were you in so we can check the signal strength. Coverage in the mooring field has always been spotty and therefore we do not advertise that WiFi is available in the mooring field.

Small marina, mostly intended for transient boats requiring mooring. The are some slip for boats, docked at the main deck. Recently redone and looks much much better. Very helpful staff, and very nice/friendly commodore. Convenient to the down town PJ shops / restaurants, and friend club members.
We recently stayed in their mooring and it was quite nice. If you are going to be in Port J, highly recommend that to give them a try.

Where to start? We are a sailboat and there were 18kts of wind at the dock. This was our first time in Port Jefferson. One of the dockhands who did help yelled at us (and the other sailboats who docked) to the extent that his partner actually apologized. Because Of the wind we went bow in, which started another set of problems. For $5 a foot I would have expected power and water at least on our side of the dock. Instead we had to stretch our power cord across the dock, with resulting problems keeping it flat on the dock and plugged in. The heads and showers are in the yacht club building, which is fine, except that it is outside the gates, which are locked at midnight til 8 am. They also shoehorned a very nice, beamy power yacht next to us. The captain did a masterful job getting her in without hitting us, but there were empty slips elsewhere. The location is good, but i would use a mooring ball next time.
Thank you for your review of the Port Jefferson Yacht club and we apologize for the service you received during your docking procedure. We take security very seriously and is the reason our gates are locked at midnight when the launch staff go off duty. For future reference, the gate has a combination lock with the code provided to all guests when they check in. This gives you full access to the club house rest rooms and showers 24 hours a day. Hope to see you again.

Nice town, solid moorings. The PJYC moorings are relatively close to shore (a good thing) and there are more moorings than those belonging to PJYC, a lot more. This gives for a crowded mooring field, which on a quiet night is not an issue at all, where it not for a 48ft Sundancer that felt the need to leave its generator on 24hrs. I consider this rude. I don't know if there were any 'rules' around it or how they could be enforced. Hence the 4 star.

by Joseph W. - Verified user on Aug 02, 2022
We stayed here a couple of years ago and had a terrible experience. After we wrote a tough but honest review, we were contacted by the Commodore who was very nice and solicitous. Because of that outreach, we decided to try again.
1) The Club has undergone some nice renovations and added slips at the dock. Then showers were much improved but not cleaned very well.
2) The highlight of our stay was a visit to the bar on Friday evening. It was staffed by volunteer members who were friendly, generous and provided above expectations service. We has a nice time there and enjoyed ourselves.
3) The launch driver on Friday evening was incompetent and unfriendly. When we called for pick-up he forgot us and had to be re-called. Each time he took us back to our boat he could not find us by the mooring number and we had to direct him to our boat. He drove the launch fast and uncomfortably aggressively. He had a bad attitude and was rude to us. He closed at 11:30 despite the website saying it ran until midnight. The morning was not better. We started calling the launch at 8:00, the announced start time. Others were also calling, all with no response. At 8:15, I called the dock house number, which picked up. The launch driver answered and said they were "setting up." When I commented that it was 8:15 and they were supposed to start at 8:00, he repeated gruffly that they were setting up and hung up. When we were picked up, he was unfriendly to the point of rudeness. When I asked him to back the launch up to match our lifeline gate, he did so without looking where he was going. I had to tell him when to stop backing. (I consider this a serious safety violation.) On our return trip, he also did not know mooring locations by their numbers, and we had to direct him to our boat.
The location of the club and its moorings is perfect. But the launch service was by far the worst we experienced in our trip from New Jersey to Block Island and back. Once more, we won't be staying again.

Cute town. Quiet mooring even in high wind. Staff a bit testy, nor were they aware of the mooring assignment provided by Dockwa and approved by PJYC. We were greeted by "Yeah, what do you want" on channel 71 when announcing our arrival, they also wanted to know why we were on the mooring assigned via email ("that will probably be ok")and were not aware we had reserved and paid for two nights, not one. I know businesses have had to deal with staffing shortages as of late, which I understand and appreciate, however, the nature of this customer service did not seem to be due to that.
Thank you for staying at PJYC and apologize for your conversation with our launch driver when you arrived at your mooring. Hopefully the rest of your stay was pleasant and you enjoyed all the wonderful amenities of Port Jefferson Village. Just for reference, PJYC monitors CH 68 which you should use in future visits.

Great stay. Luke that the Moorings are far away from ferry traffic. Launch driver was very nice and helpful.
We prefer yacht clubs because money helps youngsters learn to sail.

We arrived late and left early so we didn’t get to sample any of the amenities in Port Jefferson. From what I could hear on Channel 68, the launch service was busy, responsive and very helpful. Coming into the port, we got excellent instructions from the club as to how to find our mooring. The town looked fascinating so if the opportunity presents itself, we’ll stop here again - and stay long enough to enjoy it.

Due to a hurricane coming up the coast, we needed to change our travel plans. Floating docks were laid out to have the fixed pilings outside of the dock causing us to lay up on the pilings contacting our rub rails (Defeating the purpose of a floating dock). They did have rub bumpers installed on the inside to protect their floating dock but nothing on the outside to protect the boats. The marina had a bar to offset this but only if you had a railing to to it to which we did not have on the stern. Suggestion would be to install rub bumpers on the pilings to protect the boats the boats. Dock staff was average in boating knowledge and really did not want our input on how we wanted to tie up. If we travel to that area again, we would look for other options.

They have changed the pendant line on the mooring to stainless wire? Warning very sharp hard to hold on to .! Very unnerving as the sound of the wire scratches your boat .

problem was with wifi. there is a network and password but the network was not accessible at our mooring and they seemed to have no idea why and could not fix it.

We came in to port Jeff and wanted to grab lunch and walk around for a few hours. The other marina was charging $2 per foot per hour. PJYC was only $30 for 3 hours. Upon arrival I radioed in and they told me where I could hook up. Once on the ball I radioed ion and it took about 10 minutes for them to come get me, but they seemed pretty busy so it wasn't a big deal. Friendly service, would definitely return!

We were assigned mooring number C4 but it was occupied. We were then assigned D4 and when tying up one of the cleat lines was tangled up forcing us to get on our paddle board to disentangle ourselves. A storm was coming and we wanted both cleat lines secure. The launch service is excellent and timely. Nice private area to moor your boat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. AJ was a great facilitator. The launch operators were prompt, courteous, and engaging. The YC is in a perfect location close to downtown PJ and it’s shops and restaurants. We definitely recommend and will be back. Word of caution: make sure to pick up the mooring wand. Ours was tangled in one of the pendants and we did not take the time on arrival to untangle it. In the course of an overnight and swinging around the mooring, one pendant got trapped beneath the ball, capturing the wand further, which then etched our bow. We finally got it untangled and pulled the wand aboard.

We stayed at Port Jeff Yacht Club on our way out to and back from Block Island. Both stays were great. Even though we arrived late and tired, the dock master was very pleasant, gave us directions and came out with the launch to meet us to show us to our mooring. The launch service is included in the mooring price and runs to 12:30am (please confirm). I got sorely-needed ice from the dock master despite the late hour. The shower facilities were excellent and very clean and it is just a short 5 minute walk to downtown Port Jeff shops and restaurants. The yacht club does not have fuel, but is right next to the only fuel dock in the port. We are planning a trip to Port Jeff next year based on this great experience.

Great stay! Very easy to book and pay, and you're assigned a mooring with confirmation. The only thing negative I would say is that the launch drives so fast by your boat, it creates huge rocking.

The dockmaster was very accommodating, helping with our lines on the dock and with our reservation from a waitlist. The club is a fantastic location near all the action and the water was swimmable off the back of the boat. The shoreside facilities were restricted due to COVID but the bathrooms were clean and air conditoned. Plus the launch hours were generously late for lingering in town.

Assigned me to east side dock and no attendant to assist docking. Also had voltage issues with 30 AMP shore power. Voltage at 100V for a few hours which wreaked havoc with my AC. Two fuses blown. Price is great and staff friendly .
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We found a bad ground in the third stanchion which has now been repaired. In addition, we have provided a partial refund for the inconvenience. Hope to see you again.

I got a quick response via Ch. 68 when I came into the harbor that I could pick up any of their open mooring balls. The launch service was responsive and stayed open till 11 pm. The wi-fi was inoperable on the water but I expected that. I'm not sure if I had access to the club house for drinks. we didn't use their bathrooms. The PJ town moorings are $10 cheaper and the walk into town is about the same.
by Gregg B. - Verified user on Sep 23, 2019
The facility is fair. The plus though is that you are VERY conveniently located to the heart of Pt. Jeff. The folks at PYC are very friendly and helpful. Plus, you're away from the ferry traffic and the hustle and busle of Danford's. I would definitely stay there again.
by David S. - Verified user on Sep 22, 2019
Club was closed, but easy walk to town and there was a code for the one shower. Launch has to cover a really long mooring field so there's a wait. Lots of noise from nearby harbor, ferry terminal, and power plant with barges offloading.

Super nice people and less expensive transient slip than other option. Only down side is they lock the gates at 12pm and you can’t get in and out after that time
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the gate. Next time, ask the launch driver for the gate code and you can stay out as late as you want.

This is always an awesome harbor to visit. Plenty of great restaurants and shops. Dog friendly town with a great beach and park to walk.
The launch drivers are always extremely pleasant and accommodating.
Don't always expect the Yacht Club's bar to be open, but rest assure there are plenty of watering holes within easy walking distance. We were fortunate enough to have the pleasure of stepping up to the Port Jeff YC bar and meeting a Past Commodore who is trying to have the bar opened for reciprocating yacht club visitors. He made some great Dark & Stormys.
Many cruisers comment on the showers being outdated; while this is true the facilities are very functional, clean and a welcome amenity.
Ice is always available.
This is always a fun Port-of-Call for our us and those cruising with us.

Mooring ball assigned was very close to a dock and a large cluster of pilings. With storms throughout the night, we were not certain the mooring was strong enough to hold a boat our size and we had very little swing room as it did not seem they were set up for larger boats. Launch service was great and very prompt, but would look for a more comfortable docking or mooring situation on any future visit to Port Jefferson.

Great stay. Basic moorings are very close to the marina and dock. No fuel here, but available nearby. Launch staff is very accommodating and the launch runs at reasonable hours to support food and resupply ashore. Pump out barge near entrance to harbor is tricky to use if you've never done it yourself- but it works well. Wake chop slows down in the evening.
