A Centuries-Old Forest
Sailors Haven is home to one of the best known areas of Fire Island National Seashore—the Sunken Forest. It is located near the center of the island, across the Great South Bay from Sayville, New York. It is accessible by Sayville Ferry, private boat, and foot only.
Things To Do
Join a ranger-guided tour of the globally-rare Sunken Forest, seine in the Great South Bay, or comb the beach for sea shells. Explore the touch table and fish tanks in the visitor center or grab a snack or souvenir at the snack bar or gift shop.
In addition to a one and a half mile long boardwalk trail through the Sunken Forest, Sailors Haven also offers a visitor center; snack bar; gift shop; picnic tables and grills; lifeguarded beach in summer; a 45-slip public marina with electricity, water and a free boat pump-out station; and restrooms and showers.
Sail to Sailors Haven
The Sailors Haven Marina is a 48-slip marina with 45 slips available to the public. The marina can accommodate boats with beams between 10 and18 feet with a five foot draft. The majority of slips are between 10 and 14 feet wide. All slips have electric and water (extra fee charged).
