Reviews for Fishers Island Yacht Club
Great weekend, 2016-10-09
Captain: , Egartown, MA (10)

Staff were great in spite of lousy weather on a fall weekend. Facilities in fine condition.

Nice quiet spot to visit, 2016-08-31
Captain: , norwalk, ct (10)

Fishers island is beautiful and a great place to simply enjoy mother nature. The yacht club does little to enhance a visit. The fee is not low but the amenities and service are nonimal. To start the dock hand was unable to tie knots help set fenders or know about tides or power options. The bathrooms were not overly clean and fuel was 1.50 per gallon higher than mystic river a few minutes away. Loved the visit. The yacht club needs to offer service comensurat to their fees

Quit and peaceful.... And a beautiful harbor.

Easy docking., 2016-08-23

Docking. Close to town.

Marina staff poor. No training in boat handling. Disinterested group. Would skip this marina!

Very nice stopover, 2016-08-18
Captain: , Providence (207)

Friendly and helpful staff -- Dockmaster gave perfect directions and was waiting to assist with lines on arrival.

Captain: , Clinton ct (20)

They girls & dock master were very nice & did what they could to help us with our function with their limited resources. 1 shower 2 stall bath with weak septic system. Closes at 6 on a Saturday night was surprising.

Fishers Island YC, 2016-08-05
Captain: , Chesapeake YC, Shady SIde, MD (101)

Very friendly and competent dockmaster. Easy to reach on VHF, clean but small facility. Short walk to limited dining and ice cream. Easy access from LI Sound, a little tricky getting in but dockmaster gave perfect directions on how to treat the markers.

Whole Lotta Quiet, 2016-07-13
Captain: , Island Heights (310)

Great place if you just need a harbor for the night. Reasonable rates and limited availabilities. No restaturant on the island, but a great market nearby with everything you need to make a great meal on board.

Nice Quiet Spot, 2015-10-04
Captain: , Wickford, RI (550)

We stayed one night, 9/27, there were only two other boats at the docks. Friendly dock help and they did give us the keys to the restrooms - wihch were nice and clean - since they would not be at the docks the next day. Much of town was closed but the ice cream shop was open. A nice place for a walk; we walked to the ferry terminal. The Pequod Inn, only restaurant, has closed due to some sort of dispute between the owner and local gvmt.; too bad it was nice.

Nice Stay..., 2015-07-31
Captain: , Pittsburgh (80)

We had a very enjoyable evening here. Quiet and there is a very good restaurant in walking distance. The harbor is tranquil. The facilty clean and picturesque...If your counting on a shower get there before 6, otherswise they lock the door and no shower for you till morning...I don't understand why they can't give shower keys...

Nice Modest Facility, 2012-11-29
Captain: , Riverton, NJ (140)

Entry point to FI after rowing dinghy from anchored boat in West Harbor. Place was deserted at first. Nice gettlemen made small talk with us here but it definately felt like the slobs vs. the snobs. If you can't gain access to the bathroom here there is a gas station a short walk to the north.

Conflicting Information, 2012-07-17
Captain: , Niantic, CT (327)

After planning to stop at Fisher's Island for a quick lunch on a Sunday, I called the Yacht Club the day before to make sure there would be a slip for me. I was assured there would be plenty of space, so, the next day, I sailed there, arriving around lunchtime.

When I hailed the dockmaster on VHF 9, I was politely yet firmly told there was a visiting yacht club and there was absolutely no room for me. I begged him for a spot, explaining I only wanted to stop for lunch (under an hour), that my boat was only 19 feet long with 10" draft and that I had been told just the day before there would be room. Still, the answer was a firm "no".

As I had not brought lunch with me, I had my crew motor near a floating dock where I jumped off, went into town, bought some sandwiches and returned. My crew picked me up, and we had lunch anchored nearby. Meanwhile, the dockmaster helped the occasional larger yacht tie up and socialized with the sailors. An hour later we left, with countless slips at the Yacht Club still empty. I was very disappointed.

The heads and showers are clean, the area is beautiful, but it seems to me that unless you have a decent-sized boat and intend to stay at least overnight (and perhaps spend an appropriate amount of money doing so), you aren't worth too much of their trouble.

Away From It All, 2012-07-15
Captain: , Huntington (455)

We spent one night at the dock of Fisher Island Yacht Club this July. This was our first time there and based on previous reviews I had my doubts if we were going to enjoy our stay. We had help from a dock hand and John the dock master as we docked and both were extremely courteous and professional. I asked about getting a lobster dinner delivered to the boat and was told that the restaurant was sold out. John went the extra mile to call for us and an hour later 2 cooked lobsters were on the table (they were great but all you got was two lobsters...recommend calling several hours in advance so you won't have to rely on the kindness of others). After dinner we walked into town...really a street with a few shops about 5 minutes from the dock. Even on this short walk you get a sense for how beautiful and low key the life is on Fisher Island. It is place to get away from it all and my wife gives the ice cream at Toppers two thumbs up.

If FIYC had bigger and more modern facilities we would give it five stars but we don't use them anyway.

Great stay and worth the visit. Mooring or anchorage probably great too.

Fantastic, if you like quiet , 2012-06-30
Captain: , Narragansett Bay, RI (406)

After reading some reviews, we were worried about asking for a transient slip, let alone staying. On our first night, we anchoring in the outer harbor and took the dinghy in to see if they had a transient slip available. They were very friendly and welcoming. Approx $3 per foot. Power and water were readily available, but all we're fixed docks. With only 3 ft of tide, they really aren't a problem. We found 8 feet of water at the furthest transient dock to the north at mean low tide. Just keep the pilings in the channel, which are near the gas docks and the yacht club, to your left as you approach. We even borrowed a fender board.

The island has nearly nothing to do but relax. There is a good cafe in town with sandwiches, muffins, etc. Also, an ice cream shop and a boutique, which was much better than expected. Although, I didn't expect much. All walking distance.

You will see a handful of apparently wealthy people running about, but they generally come and go from the very wealthy and private East end of the island.

The Pequot is the only restaurant and the scallops are a must. Very good.

All in all, we loved it. The island is gorgeous and nearly silent, if not just laid back. We will be back.

Polite and helpful, 2012-03-03
Captain: , new york (351)

We anchored just off of GC7 and dinghy'ed into their free dinghy dock. They were helpful and pointed out where to go to get some eats (well, actually, the only place is the Pequot Inn, notwithstanding the ice cream place.)

Wasnt open while we were there (4 PM Sept 12), 2011-09-13
Captain: , Padanaram, MA (259)

I have to echo other reviews - georgeous place, tough local scene. We took on deisel - woman at gas dock was nice, but not very helpful. Tied to end of YC dock to fill water tanks as no one was available to tell us was OK or not. Tough locals - great anchorage outside.

Not for Transients, 2010-09-05
Captain: , Robbinsvill, NJ (148)

Stayed one night and club is good for members, but not for transients. Expensive with limited facilities and no place to go. You are better off anchoring outside in West Harbor.

Didn’t feel welcome, with one exception, 2008-08-24
Captain: , taunton, ma (20)

Let’s start with the good: Fishers Island is gorgeous! The dock hand is a great kid well worth getting to know. After that… The level of snobbery is absurd at FIYC. There are no floating docks for transients; not a big deal unless you are like my parents who are approaching 70 and have trouble with a big step sometimes. Everything is well maintained, not only at the FIYC, but everywhere on the island. To walk into town and back is about a mile and a half round trip. The deck hand is a wonderful young man who is very helpful; not only with docking but with directions and some great conversations. The water in the harbor is crystal clean and there is an abundance of marine life to entertain you, if you love nature and want to get away from it all this is the place, TV and cell phone reception is poor.

Now the bad: the night I stayed at FIYC I was the only transient. There was a cocktail party that night and in my walk to the shower not even a hello or a wave (I guess I was wearing the wrong color sports coat). I know at my marina when there is a party all of the transients are invited, wouldn’t you invite a guest at your house to dine with you? In town the prices at the boutiques were a laugh, $40 for sandals (and that was the 30% off price), a water color of the island for $500 and $4.75 for a 2 scoop ice cream cone! Wait it gets better: I called ahead to ask how much gas was at the dock. I was told $4.80. Not exactly true. It was $4.97. The same day it was $3.95 at Point Judith and $3.43 at the pump back home. If you are filling a 200 gallon tank that is a huge difference! The members of FIYC also have there own “no wake zone” rules. It seems if you are a member the no wake markers are a mere suggestion; you must earn points based on how many transients you nock over per night. When a man in a CC asked me if I had had any luck today (saw my fishing poles) I told him “2 stripers and 6 blues”. His response was terse “No you didn’t”. Of course, how silly of me, how a Neanderthal like me could have caught a fish is implausible! To end on a very good note, the dock hand was a very kind, courteous, and friendly young man. After getting to know him (spending a few hours chatting) I completely understand why. He is from the mainland; his father is a lobsterman and his mother a school teacher, he works 2 jobs to put himself through college. I know he will do well, and I wish him the best! Hey someone who works for a living and comes from working parents carries himself with dignity, wow, what a novelty! IF I ever stop at FI again it will not be at the yacht club!

Great individual service & Lobster Served at your boat !, 2007-07-17
Captain: , Huntington, NY (2310)

The comments that Jeff made might be fair for the harbor, but not at all for FIYC itself. Perhaps those comments can be transferred to the anchorage Jeff ?

Nancy and John Evans (Dockmaster) provide an exceptional experience, as you might expect for being 1 of maybe 10 transients for the day.

You know you found someplace different the moment you call them for a reservation. They are quickly able to determine if they have space, and superberly handle your reservation and are charming/patient to answer questions you might have about the area.

Nancy offered to arrange having local lobster delivered to our boat if we order by 3pm.

Our first visit here was without reservation, we made exceptionally good time traveling 80 miles from Huntington, NY, and called at 5pm to see if they would take us ... and just maybe have that lobster ready.

They did. It was wonderful after an 11 hour sail to pull up at 6pm, to have the local lobster fishermans wife at the dock with 4 cocked lobsters (you need to have the rest of the meal on board yourself), and to be digging in after 15 minutes on the dock (my wife needed to melt some butter and boil some vegetables).

Hostile Harbor, 2007-04-15
Captain: , New York (88)

This is a snobby location and not welcoming to visiting sailors. The locals have taken up all the inner harbor with private moorings and if you pick up an empty one you will be ticketed. No services except hyper expensive fuel and they charge for water too!

Anchor off and if you can find a place to tie your dink you can enjoy a lovely walk in this very private exclusive community. Protected from the SW prevailing winds, but a tough night when it blows from the NW. FlatHammock just to the north is a popular place to drop a lunch hook.

Great sunsets are to be had in the outer anchorage. Beware of rocks between the inner and outter harbors. It's a quiet anchorage, but it can get crowded.
