Excellent staff who are friendly, helpful, always around. Clean facilities. Beautiful island. Bring bikes if you can. Do not forget the fantastic museum.

Helpful staff (Beth) handling our arrival and rearranging fenders to deal with fixed versus floating docks we are used to. Got set up with water, electricity and wifi :).
Pump-out is by arrangement and timing imprecise so for our overnight stay couldn't be managed. Pretty island begs a longer stay to explore but we did manage to find Toppers, the excellent ice cream shop nearby. Were hoping to find a breakfast cafe or something but had to settle for machine coffee from the local convenience store.
Come provisioned and explore the quaint and pretty island.

First visit to FIYC and Fishers Island - we will be back. We have cruised by the island several times but never stopped in. Very welcoming staff with an outstanding service attitude! Facilities were exceptionally clean!
Fishers Island is beautiful and we enjoyed our short stay. Everyone we met on the island - locals and visitors like us - were very friendly. A total stranger stopped and offered us a ride back to FIYC from town due to the extreme heat.
Thank you from the Saoirse crew!

Great friendly staff, nice facilities, clean bathroom/shower. Staff helped guide us in and helped with docking, lines, hook-ups, etc. Even came back and checked on us. Will definitely come back.

Good communication with Beth allowed us to shelter for the night at their T dock. Fixed docks with electricity. Very clean facilities but otherwise not a lot going on. Thank you Beth

The people there ,Beth the manager and 2 dockhands Lohn and John were very efficient, friendly and wanted you to be happy there. The bathroom/showers were immaculate and all in all an AWESOME STAY. tHE BEACH IS A 3 MINUTE WALK AWAY-soft AND SANDY. There are limited but adequate facilities on the island-1 restaurant a couple of cafes and a really great market though not open on Sundays.Everyone waves to everyone so be prepared to wave alot! There is no Uber or taxis so you have to be able to walk a little . The restaurant ,market and town are a 15 minute very pleasant mostly level walk.We will go back again. If you are looking for a party place,this aint it,but a quiet reasonably priced marina -you found your home.

We go to Fishers Island Yacht Club once or twice a year. We love stopping here to see friends. The island is very relaxing and has enough to help us enjoy our times there.
FIYC is in a nicely protected harbor the crew there is very helpful getting you tied up helpful with any questions we had. Look forward to getting back there.
by Colin C. on Oct 06, 2021
Very friendly staff, Beth was on the dock, ready to help and welcome us to the marina. She made sure we had everything we needed before she left. Very clean facilities. Marina was walking distance from town and a great local restaurant.

This was are summer YACHT CLUB cruise Traveled with seven boats , Staff ,very rude Made stay very uncomfortable will not be returning
by Jonathan S. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2020
We are very sorry that we chose to stay at Fishers Island Yacht Club. They took our yacht clubs reservation during COVID 19 and did not say a word about restrictions. Two days before we were to begin our clubs 10 day cruise, they sent an email saying that due to COVID the bathrooms would be locked, and that we were being asked not to leave the very small property (no dining facilities on premises, no pool, no amenities).
We called ahead to ask them if this was true considering we were from the same state and not mandated for a quarantine. They said it is just a request for us to stay on premises, but there was no enforcement.
Once we arrived, the staff could not have been more rude and condescending to the members of our club. They continuously scolded us like children about not leaving the property and one of the staff encountered us at an outside restaurant and loudly and rudely scolded our friend for leaving the property in front of all of the patrons at the restaurant.
COVID is serious and restrictions are appropriate when based in science. As a health care worker these rules were absolutely not based on any science, nor embraced by businesses outside of the yacht club. In any case, it is never ok to be rude to guests.
Do yourself a favor and stay in Mystic instead!
by Adam R. - Verified user on Jul 07, 2020
After docking we were informed we could not leave the marina premises due to Covid restrictions. The dock hand said he called everyone to tell them this.
We did not get the call. What is most frustrating, is both Dockwa and FIYC confirmed my reservation without notifying me of the restriction. Is is too much trouble to but a notice on the website or say something in the two confirmations? I guess so. We were told we could order dinner from a local restaurant and they would bring it to us. But the restaurant's website was down. We were told the rest rooms and showers were closed for the year. They did kindly make an exception for us, but gave us the wrong combination to the door so we couldn't use them after all. They did give us a 20% discount on the bill, but double charged my credit card in the end.
Maybe next year :(

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They are clearly dedicated to ensuring their guests have the best possible experience and they openly share their love of this very unique island. The facilities are very well maintained and the setting is tranquil and beautiful.

Very quiet post Columbus Day. Dock master called us the day before with harbor details as docks unmanned.
Only restaurant open thus time of the year was the Legionnaires Post. Good pizza and drinks, what else did we need?
Mind the buoys in and out. We draw 7 feet, got stuck for 10 minutes on the way out. Mud bottom, so no big deal.
Beautiful old fashioned harbor and island. Will make a longer visit next summer.

We came to FIYC from Dodsons in Stonington and the contrast was stark. If I never meet the young dock hand, again it’ll be too soon. His attitude soured the experience from the get go. Grudgingly courteous, he lacked warmth, hospitality, and good manners. He had the gall to comment upon my wife’s degree of participation during docking. I suspect he is well thought of by the FIYC members since he was attentive to them. That’s not a bad thing in and of itself, but he essentially encouraged a member to buzz the dock a few times in a jet boat, which caused a wake.
Lincoln White, the dockmaster was very helpful, after the fact. The market was worth the long walk. I’d say the marina is trying to gain positive cash flow for the yacht club, but for someone without friends on the island, it would be better if they had a few moorings and a dingy Dock.
I won’t go back unless I’m visiting someone on the island.

This is our second year coming to FIYC and looking forward to next year. They have a great staff, Ian was great from the minute he helped us when we arrived and was always checking with us during our stay to see if we needed anything. When Lincoln greeted us first things he asked was how did his guys do with our arrival. Would highly recommend

For such a beautiful island, the Yacht Club is third rate. Docks ate old, hard to find electric hook ups that worked, docks not lighted at night. It would be easy to fall in without a flash light. The staff was rude, never telling us the code for the showers and heads. At 11:30 the day of check out they practically threw us out say larger boats were coming, but that didn’t happen. Find a different marina to spend your money.

A great quiet spot at the dock. Fun places within walking distance, even an IGA well stocked grocery store!

by Peter S. - Verified user on Jul 15, 2019
We had several issues with the club, but overall it was a reasonable two night stay.
First I think their summary on Dockwa needs to be updated:
1) The entire property closes at 5. If you arrive later, you will have no idea where you should tie up.
2) Docks are fixed/non floating and they do not provide fender boards.
3) They are unreasonable on trash/recycling. I went to put recycling in containers and was told I needed to sort ON MY BOAT BEFORE BRINGING to trash. Also - I was told that a single empty wine bottle had to be put in a plastic bag (so add more plastic???).
4) Dockhands had attitude. One in particular was down-right disrespectful.
5) There is only one public restaurant on the entire island!!!
In general, we got the feeling that we weren't really wanted at the YC or on the island. Therefore I will not be returning again.

Fishers Island is a special place and so is the quaint Fishers Island Yacht Club. Everything you need is here on a smaller scale than some of the bigger stopping points. Everything is in walking distance (there is one restaurant, one deli, and one great ice cream store.) The staff is very nice and they work hard to be sure you have what you need. The highlight for us was getting cooked lobsters and scallops delivered to our boat! We could become regulars...

Lovely harbor, well-protected marina/yacht club, very clean and remodeled rest rooms/showers, and a quaint family-oriented restaurant a short walk away. Friendly staff met us at our slip for docking assistance, but then (5 pm) closed up/locked up, and left the premises before giving us rest room unlock key or WiFi password. Would definitely go back again.

Amazing place! Came here for the first time last weekend and the staff was wonderful at getting us through the channel and docked. My husband and I had cooked lobsters delivered right to our boat, then went to the Pequot inn for some drinks. Bathrooms could be nicer, but the harbor was beautiful! They even gave us access to the members-only clubhouse to watch tv and check email. We will definitely be back soon!
