Fair Point Marina has become a popular destination for boaters all over Lake Ontario and beyond.

Professional Staff

Our well-trained staff is committed to exceeding the expectations of each guest. Our mission is to take care of you so you can relax and have fun during your stay with us. We believe in our motto that “it doesn’t get any better than this” and are proud of our Five Star Rating at Active Captain. We will help you get to your slip safely, show you around and introduce you to other boaters and give you advice on what to do in the area. If you need help with rigging, provisioning or mechanical service, we can help.

Charming Community

The marina is located in Fair Haven, New York on the north end of Little Sodus Bay. The village has been going through a resurgence in recent years and now boasts many great bars, restaurants, gift shops and a fabulous winery just down the street from the marina. Links to many of these businesses and attractions can be found on our “Things to Do” page.

Fuel and Pump Out Station

Our Fuel Dock has both diesel and regular fuel. We are the only marina in the area offering non-ethanol fuel too. Getting fuel or a pump out is easy. The dock is 200 feet long and located at the entrance of the channel leading into the marina. You will find plenty of places to tie up.


The marina sits on a spectacular peninsula separating Lake Ontario and Little Sodus Bay. We’re just a few hundred yards from the channel leading to Lake Ontario so you won’t waste precious fuel or time getting out to open cruising waters. With long shorelines on both the bay and lake, the views are quite simply breathtaking.

Outstanding Service

Fair Point Marina offers a full range of services to our boaters. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer looking for a hand with a few tasks or someone who wants to be pampered, we have just what you need. We have a reputation for professional, passionate and attentive service.

Dock Options

With over 90 slips, we have all sorts of dock configurations to suit you. We’ve got cozy slips for daysailers and roomy slips for big power cruisers too. All of our slips come with free power (30A and 50A) and water. Both fixed pier and floating docks available, serving boats up to 45′. All of our docks have aluminum gangways with railings and lighted dockways for your safety.

Amenities Galore

Our shower, restroom and kitchen facilities are kept so clean that our health inspector said it was the cleanest he’d seen!  Free broadband Internet for checking emails and watching your favorite movie on Netflix while onboard. A beach just a stone’s throw from your slip. A park to walk your dog. A webcam to check on your boat year round. Outdoor grills. Laundry facilities. And unlike other marinas that are covered by asphalt or stone, we have an abundance of open grassy areas, trees and flowers. You’ve got to see it to appreciate it.

Free WiFi

Free WiFi available for surfing the ‘net and checking your emails. With access points installed throughout the marina and the property, you are assured of a good, strong connection for your tablet, phone or laptop.



Many sailors cruising through the Great Lakes or through the NY Canal have found us to be an excellent spot to have the mast taken down or put up for their journey. Our mast stepping work consistently draws rave reviews. See our Active Captain reviews. We are close to the canal entrance in Oswego and have the equipment to handle large masts that many marinas won’t touch.

Spend a night or two with us. Our friendly staff and customers will help you prepare for your journey. We can get you to the store for provisions, help with your rigging and even troubleshoot those nagging equipment issues. Our staff has considerable cruising experience and know what it takes to be prepared.  They are happy to share their advice and insights with you in an easy-going, relaxed manner.

When you are ready to continue your journey, we can help you secure your mast to the deck or, if you prefer, arrange to have the mast shipped to or from the Hudson River. We recommend Hop-o-Nose Marina for mast stepping work there.


We are fortunate to have the support of so many boaters and their families. Here are some of the comments we have received over the past few years from our transient customers. A full list of the comments we have received appears on our Customer Comments page.

“I have just been reading some of the comments made by boaters who have been at your marina. They are absolutely right. When we pulled in, to avoid a storm, you and your lady and another fellow ran down to the dock to help us tie up quickly. Then you told us about several places to eat in town, and offered to take us along with you on your boat, or if we preferred you were willing (offered twice) to let us use your car. You were friendly, courteous and helpful with everything. This goes well beyond what I have experienced at other marinas. I would be happy to stay at Fair Point again, and will certainly recommend it to all sailers/boaters.”

Boater from Buffalo

“Tim – We have stayed at many marinas throughout the Great Lakes as we make our journey down to the Bahamas. Yours is without question the best one yet. I give it a 10+. The marina setting is beautiful, the facilities are impeccably maintained… [one of three boaters who came to the marina in August 2012 to have their masts unstepped and to have other work done in preparation for cruising down south]

Mast Stepping Cruiser

“Your five star rating on Active Captain is well-deserved. We are impressed with the marina and the professionalism of your staff.” [from sailors heading into the Erie Canal.]

Cruiser through the NY Canal

“Tim, we’ve been boating for many years and been to many marinas all over the east coast. Fair Point is the best. Period. Your team is fantastic, the location is beautiful and your customers are so nice and kind.”

Sailor from Toronto

“Fair Point Marina had excellent reviews on line and we found out that this place is one of the best marinas on all the Great Lakes.” (from a cruiser who traveled through the Great Lakes on their way down south)

Sailor Cruising South

“You’ve always been known for keeping the place clean but you’ve exceeded your high standards this year. The bathrooms have never been better.”

Power Boater

“You {Fair Point Marina] are the talk of the Lake. As we have cruised around the Lake, many boaters suggested we stop here. Said the place was beautiful, the staff outstanding and the people friendly and warm. They were right. We love Fair Point.”
