Very protected. Booked late afternoon for a night time arrival. Wifi worked. Didn't go to shore...

by gabrielmatthias on Oct 13, 2021
Dock plugs were pretty loose. Slight rocking from passing boats, but nothing to really complain about. Helpful dock hand. Generally well protected. We'll be back

by captainboot99 on Oct 04, 2021
Very nice staff, easy walk to town, reasonable docking rates!

very nice staff--prompt launch service. Steps from town

Great spot and great staff

Safe, warm, friendly- a perfect place to tuck in as you sail Long Island Sound

by maxwell on Sep 09, 2021
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.
Marina Response:
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.

by svmarite on Sep 09, 2021
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.

by andiamo_rm on Sep 06, 2021
Small marina, mostly intended for transient boats requiring mooring. The are not slip for boats, docked at the main deck. The space was not wide enough with pillars along the side. The pillars did not have built in protection which was pushing against the boat, and interfering with the lines. However, 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, recommend that to give them a try.

by genepaquette on Sep 06, 2021
Wonderful time, great facilities, so much to do, live music playing everywhere!

by bsail on Sep 06, 2021
Highly recommend!! Excellent location and launch service.. Will definitely be back soon ..

by djrobertson on Sep 04, 2021
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.

by ezkwiatkowski on Aug 31, 2021
Very convenient to town, great launch service.

by jvyoung on Aug 30, 2021
Safe. Secure. Friendly and convenient launch. Get a drink at the club house!

by windstar376 on Aug 23, 2021
Best move for us great dock, nice people will be back next year. Spent 2 days no issues easy in and out. Mike and the dockmaster were awesome.

by lsundshine on Aug 23, 2021
Super hospitable! Great friendly people!

by paulf on Aug 23, 2021
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.

by icestationzebra on Aug 19, 2021
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 .

by rolandfalken on Aug 19, 2021
Nice great moorings and fast and frequent launch service

by canopus on Aug 14, 2021
Mooring in great condition, friendly launch operator, nice town good value

by oceanwaters02 on Aug 11, 2021
Great overnight stay next to Danfords. Calm, small marina. Walk into town- many locals stores and restaurants in walking distance. We will be staying here again. Great, friendly deck hands to assist docking. Thanks!

by jdlm on Aug 11, 2021
PJYC is a nice place to visit. The moorings are close to the launch dock and the launch drivers are very courteous. Just a short walk into Port Jeff and a myriad of nice spots to eat. We enjoy Z Pita. Good food and reasonable $$ Port Bistro was also very enjoyable.

by ruthmessinger on Aug 10, 2021
easy use of dockwa since they sent us the mooring #. good launch service in terrible rainy weather. 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.

by fverderber on Aug 08, 2021
Facilities could use an upgrade.

by ladybug on Aug 06, 2021
Friendly launch operators, great town for exploring, dining, & drinking

by bshapsail39 on Aug 05, 2021

Nice sheltered mooring, close to everything and great launch drivers!

Who needs Danford's All they care about is taking your money PJ YC Great place, great people and close to town!!

by drjbc3 on Jul 29, 2021
The Yacht Club was clean . The Launch Drivers were prompt and knowledgeable. We went to the restaurant that they recommended, and we were very pleased.

by dulccie258 on Jul 28, 2021
We loved it, it was clean , the dock hands were professional and friendly. Next time we hope to stay for several days. And we really liked the town . The giant candy / ice cream store has Vegan Ice Cream @ Roger Frigate”

by billrosect on Jul 20, 2021
The Staff at PYYC were great. They were at the dock and ready to assist when we pulled up! Very helpful. See you soon-

by sfastook on Jul 18, 2021
We really appreciated the staff. They were really accommodating and friendly. It’s a nice quiet spot and we will visit again soon!

by petermazzari on Jul 18, 2021
The best crew !! Great place to visit !!

by mightymac on Jul 11, 2021
Very calm this stay, tenders came immediately

by jslukows on Jul 11, 2021
Great launch service, nice and clean bathrooms and showers with air conditioning, well-protected mooring, easy access to the city, very friendly and inviting yacht club members. We were concerned about our mooring holding our 20 ton boat during Tropical Storm Elsa, but we managed fine. Thank you very much!

by dbkess15 on Jul 09, 2021
excellent dock hands.

by knightflier on Jul 06, 2021
Great place to visit, we stayed five nights, Yacht club/water taxi folks are very helpful. The bathroom /shower was clean, but tile floor is slippery. Need to add more hangers 7chair so you can sit and change. I will look forward to returning.

by anooge on Jul 06, 2021
We love using the moorings at the PJYC. It’s easy to walk to town. The moorings are also close to their dinghy dock if you bring your dinghy, if not they do have launch service..

by leovalle on Jul 06, 2021
Bathroom at the dock was closed, had to walk to the main club house and get a Code from a member, everything else was pretty good

by karenkober on Jun 27, 2021
Always a pleasure in such a sweet town! Michael, George, Wayne all nice! Lots of fun!

by doms1214 on Jun 24, 2021
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!

by rmarra on Jun 20, 2021
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.

by vls3ptx55jufrsmaxwgb on Jun 13, 2021
Port Jefferson Yacht club never disappoints. Great staff, gorgeous harbor and plenty of places to check out.

by rssimons on Jun 12, 2021
Very helpful, nice launch, lots of action in town

by okolehao on Jun 10, 2021
Great Stay, wonderful staff and launch drivers. Always a pleasure to stay here

by elschwieb on Jun 05, 2021
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.

by lisje on May 21, 2021
Great people. Showers clean. Easy entrance/exit to harbor. Nice town with restaurants and fishing supplies.

by emolden on May 10, 2021
Great stay, great location, very helpful.

by dennishr36 on Apr 29, 2021
Pleasant stay and friendly launch driver. Always enjoy the ferries arriving and departing.

Very nice mooring to stay in Port Jefferson

by orientabob on Oct 07, 2020
Always great...always friendly. A fast walk into town.

by windborne on Oct 02, 2020
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. 2020. It took more than a year but my son and I made the trip and had another great experience at PJYC

by jdrinane on Sep 27, 2020
Very accommodating and well run service - very nice late hour service so late in the season.

by corinnefa on Sep 09, 2020
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.

by zakecksk on Sep 09, 2020
Very clean, launch is amazing! Great stay!!

by lwhitin on Sep 07, 2020
Great location! Launch operators were nice. Showers had plenty of hot water. Wish the bar had been open but we understand with Covid.

by yenhwqzdz4uus7xloipt on Sep 07, 2020
Great weekend ! Gracious service

by jeffreydubin on Aug 31, 2020
Great help during a rough weather day. Only negative was the spotty wifi. Will be back.

by amazinggrace_o322 on Aug 31, 2020
Always a great experience staying at PJYC. Launch is very timing and steps to downtown activities.

by jefranknj on Aug 29, 2020
Not enough time to check the facilities.

by scotm666 on Aug 23, 2020
Always enjoy staying at PJYC. Very friendly staff. Although they have the most expensive ice in the sound (even more than Block Island. $10 for 2 5lb bags.

by stuartinkpen on Aug 23, 2020
Sent a mooring assignment but it was occupied on arrival. Another assigned after launch came out .

by fmstuart on Aug 23, 2020
Just great people, a beautiful harbor, and a quaint town. Could not have been easier or better.

by joostmarinegmailcom on Aug 22, 2020
Great mooring. Great launch driver. Couldn’t get in to use bathrooms after 6 pm. WiFi didn’t work

by lkdollinger on Aug 16, 2020
Had a hard tine finding our mooring but other then that excellent. Staff was super nice and helpful. Would definitely stay again

by lev113815 on Aug 07, 2020
We stayed on a PJYC mooring for 3 days - it was super convenient and every staff member was friendly, and helpful. Would stay again!

by mw1gehehhcglftd8j3se on Aug 02, 2020
Very friendly place to stop

by mhramsey on Aug 01, 2020
Nice town. Nice club. Mooring bridles pretty dirty this time of year.

by blersner on Jul 31, 2020
Great stay, Great club and people. Guest Restrooms are in need of an update...

by jcopeland on Jul 29, 2020
Thank you.

by drz4_uyasuzmvketk1zl on Jul 21, 2020
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.

by eugene on Jul 10, 2020
Excellent launch service and walk to town location

by pmp1zdrxknxeq6cgykv2 on Jun 29, 2020
Jessica was fantastic launch Captain

by cheech on Jun 28, 2020
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 .
Marina Response:
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.

by bnewport on Jun 21, 2020
Comfortable mooring, easy dock access with friendly tender service. We enjoy the town when we are there. There is a great donut shop (East main and main) a couple of blocks from the marina.

by sailluckycat on Oct 14, 2019
Everyone involved was super helpful and friendly. A big storm rolled through and they called me when I was off the boat to check in

by msnelgrove on Sep 30, 2019
Very loud with power plant, gravel barges, ferry every hour until 10pm and hotel partying. Yacht club facilities old and unkempt. Launch service nice. Good for couple of days.

by swhowell01 on Sep 29, 2019
Nice mooring very close to town

by cbleuher on Sep 23, 2019
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 gbarry 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 sailinghiddenhand 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.

by brett_sandgren on Sep 15, 2019
Absolutely wonderful. Friendly Staff. Very accommodating.

by hmurmur on Aug 30, 2019
Convenient. Pleasant dock staff. Short walk to town. Lots to do here

by kao1066 on Aug 27, 2019
Yacht Club restrooms could have been cleaner. A great stay otherwise.

by randysr on Aug 25, 2019
Nice mooring field close to the Club Excellent launch service Club was late to open and bar is limited

by jworth3 on Aug 16, 2019
Disappointing stay. We’ve taken moorings here for eleven years and this was the worst. 1) overall the club is rundown, messy and dirty. The showers were gross with dirt, black mold and dead insects. The grounds were unkempt with trash and apparently abandoned boats littered about. The launches were dirty and ill-maintained. The launch driver on Thursday evening was incompetent. Every time, totaling three times, 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 their mooring number and we had to direct him to our boat. He was great at actually driving the launch, but his service was terrible. This was in stark contrast with the young lady driving the launch the next morning, who was polite, sharp and a good driver. The location of the club and it’s moorings is perfect. But i’d Be surprised if it survives much longer. We won’r Be staying again.

by jberger714 on Aug 14, 2019
Always a pleasure, great service and location.

by jwalter3 on Aug 06, 2019
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
Marina Response:
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.

by obmd1 on Jul 27, 2019
Responsive crew, easy launch ride to town. Quiet mooring field.

by rhseye2020 on Jul 27, 2019
Clean.polite and courteous staff

by calypso on Jul 22, 2019
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.

by admirals on Jul 21, 2019
Great harbor with excellent mornings. Staff and launch service are great!

by rjcolston on Jul 18, 2019
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.

by gbward on Jul 14, 2019
Nice club. One block to town. Great park nearby. And Joe, the bartender, was so nice to talk to

by moseler124 on Jul 09, 2019
Great safe harbor, nice moorings and staff. The nearby power plant produced a loud humming noise all evening.

by maryjean on Jul 08, 2019
Had a great time. Used a mooring. Shuttle made it convenient to go to town.

by bobcovino on Jul 06, 2019
Great launch was always prompted

by jaamess on Jul 05, 2019
This is a great place to stay close to town but far enough away that it’s quite at night : jessica the dock master is the best

by whit on Jul 03, 2019
Courteous launch service Well positioned geographically Showers & restroom just ok

by brucehydock on Jun 30, 2019
A great spot! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Quick walk into town and a short dinghy ride to a small beach (wear beach shoes North shore beaches are rocky). We will definitely come back.

by khoran01 on Jun 28, 2019
Pretty Harbor. Launch service was awesome!!

by todddisston on Jun 17, 2019
Simple and easy. Launch service good and on point. The Town (including - the now reopened Billies 1890 - was great.

by rapiti on Jun 12, 2019
Nice mooring, friendly shore service, great people!

by davecordts on Sep 17, 2018
Great location and very accommodating. Launch service is great. We visited during the Dragon Boat Festival which is a great event. We had 14 boats visiting and absolutely paced ourselves out to not arrive at once. Still they were overwhelmed and some mooring assignments took nearly an hour, even though they were open and available.

by jbodenstab on Sep 15, 2018
Great harbor and town! Very nice people.

We truly enjoy PJYC. The launch captains are wonderful and it’s an easy walk to town.

by fperillo on Aug 26, 2018
Great facilities. Awesome staff. Will be back

by mooringhunter on Aug 24, 2018
The location and launch service was great. BUT their WiFi was not working at all which was our reason for a mooring rather than free anchoring. We were close in and have a strong booster. The launch driver said it seldom works. Misrepresentation!

by kavanah on Aug 20, 2018
The web based reservation system worked perfectly! The Yacht Club was terrific. So helpful and friendly, and most important Dockwa was absolutely realable in every way. I will use them every time.

by boettner on Aug 16, 2018
Great Friendly, perfect Location

by sailorsteve on Aug 06, 2018
We stay at Port Jeff at least a couple times every summer. The Club is a wonderful host.

by slongo on Jul 09, 2018
Very nice with launch service until midnight. Bar was open and very reasonable. Fabulous views and a short walk to town.

by karlsachs on Jul 08, 2018
Very easy to get in and out of. Launch service was very prompt. Great port for a night or two to visit. Lots of places to go to eat and drink in walking distance.

by troubleman719 on Jun 30, 2018
Great club and town. Plenty to do and see

by steadfast1997 on Jun 19, 2018
Good location, extremely gracious and friendly staff and members. Excellent location, close to downtown. Would get more stars but clubhouse amenities are basic, bathhouse facilities dated. Still, well worth the visit.

by mpike on Oct 11, 2017
This is the second time we've stayed at Port Jeff Yacht Club, and we've found the staff to be friendly and helpful both times. The launch is reliable and the hours are great. Looking forward to visiting again next year!

by kharrington3411 on Sep 10, 2017
Terrific Friendly, accomadating, beautiful place Thank you!!!

by vicki on Sep 04, 2017
Awesome staff. Very welcoming and friendly. Great launch service. Moorings well maintained. Very clean showers too. Port Jeff is a fun town with lots to do and a beautiful waterfront.

by 5169225539 on Aug 27, 2017
Staff very accomodative and nice too. Good facilities, but clubhouse is rather out of the way so I never went there.

by pedromarquinez on Aug 22, 2017
They could not produce ICE for us. And pickup service is a hit or miss, quick if you are the only one but 1h if you are not. Only one boat servicing, two others on the dock.

by mschpero on Aug 06, 2017
The marina staff are very courteous and helpful . It was a very pleasant stay.

by robertfatigate on Aug 06, 2017

by edguy3 on Aug 03, 2017

by davidwebber on Jul 06, 2017
Nice anchorage. Friendly and prompt launch service.

by freebyrd on Jun 29, 2017
friendly and on the ball

by captainjake on Jun 26, 2017
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.
