All Town Maritime Facilities Are Closed to Recreational Use Until Further Notice

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Due to directives from Suffolk County mandating the closure of recreational maritime facilities and the subsequent and planned closures of privately-operated marinas, the Department of Maritime Services is delaying the opening of Town Maritime facilities due to the presence and usage of high-touch surfaces and close proximity to other patrons required at these facilities.

All Town Maritime facilities are closed to recreational use until further notice.

The Department of Maritime Services, in consultation with advice given by Suffolk County, health officials and other municipalities, will delay the opening of Mill Dam Marina, located on Mill Dam Road, Huntington; Halesite Marina, located on New York Avenue, Halesite; and the Gold Star Battalion Beach Boat Launch, located on West Shore Road, Huntington, past the originally scheduled April 1 seasonal opening date and until further notice.

The Harbormaster’s Office is closed to the public until further notice; staff is working remotely, in the field, and on patrol. Please email with any inquiries.
