Cruising Long Island Sound

Would also suggest Port Jefferson, NY. It offers two nice options. The first is a generally quiet, calm anchorage with good holding (sand) in a large bay off to the right as you enter the harbor (There may be other boats, but there''s lots of room.) The second is taking a mooring or anchoring further in, on the left side of the harbor close to town. Launch service from the Setauket Yacht Club or the commercial service deposit you about a five-minute walk from a wide array of shops and restaurants. There is a puppy store that you may want to avoid unless you want to bring one home with you (on a boat??) Also beware of the ferry wake. It comes in pretty fast and tosses our 36 footer around a bit. Going East, Port Jeff is about the last place on the LI shore deep enough to get into before Plum Gut, since Mt. Sinai is a lot shallower. Have fun & don''t rush!
