Reviews for Fishing Bay Yacht Club
What a great spot!, 2016-05-21
Captain: , Colchester VT (380)

We came in anticipating some bad weather and being able to get off the boat with our dog helps tremendously. It is very well protected in here. Dixon was really great in arranging our stay and helping get us on the dock. The club facilities are really, really nice. The location is beautiful. Showers and bathroom really clean. 1st night is free if a member of a yacht club - how great is that!! Thanks FBYC!

Always a pleasant and friendly stay, 2015-09-29
Captain: , Poughkeepsie, NY (6077)

If you belong to a recognized yacht club, there are two free docks available for the first night, $1.50/ft thereafter. Call ahead to see if they are available.

The club itself is fantastic. It's very protected and the docks all have electricity and water. You also have the use of the clubhouse with showers and bathrooms, all very clean. The surroundings are very beautiful and well kept but most of all the members are extremely friendly. They even have free 15 Mbps WiFi.

The Steward's day off is Monday so on that day there may be no one around to help - but we still made it okay, it's very protected. Just call Dixon on his cell.

Fishing Bay Marina - Great Spot, 2015-05-21
Captain: , St Petersburg (20)

We were pleasantly surprised that this marina extends the use of their facilities to transients who are anchored for $10\person per day this includes the use of the dingy dock, showers, laundry, pool, courtesy car and bikes. The owners and staff were very welcoming and we were thrilled that they offered us the use of their facilities. We found the washrooms and showers perfectly clean and private. We were unable to use the pool as they were in the process of preparing it for opening, but it look lovely and clean. We also enjoyed the lovely views on the water. The grocery store was remarkably inexpensive. Highly recommend this great spot!

We were welcomed by Dixon, the facility manager, although it was after his normal hours. Call his cell early to see if they have room. No T-Mobile coverage but WiFi was good.

Great spot, 2012-12-12
Captain: , Brooklin, ME (1081)

We came here off-season as a guest of a friend, and were welcomed kindly by Dixon and given free run of the place. The facilities are in great shape, very clean, etc. and Dixon is a good host and will make sure you're situated well.

Captain: , New Rochelle, NY (1000)

First night is free. Water and 30 Amp electric on the docks. Friendly people. Favor the 'Red Side' between markers #7 & #9.

We spent a night here on 2 different occasions and we very warmly welcomed! They have a swimable pool!!!! Very clean showers and restrooms. No laundry but this is a yacht club--not a marina. The dockmaster is great.
