Harbor Committee

During the summer months, Fishers Island has many summer residents and visiting groups who love to use West Harbor as a summer retreat. The Fishers Island Harbor Committee has jurisdiction over these waters and is responsible for its careful and safe use. The moorings and Bay Patrol folks have for many years kept West Harbor a safe and clean harbor for all to use.

Bay Constables for Fishers Island

The Fishers Island Harbor Committee oversees the Bay Patrol by the Bay Constables for the summer.

Some requirements for the Bay Constable job include:

  • Access to a boat and motor of their own
  • NYS Safe Boating Certificate
  • Supply evidence that they have good experience on the water

Pirates Cove Marine installs the annual sticker on all mooring in West Harbor. The stickers indicate the owner has paid the 2020 yearly fee and the gear and tackle has been inspected and is approved for use.

The Marine Division is tasked with patrolling Southold Town’s shoreline with the Long Island Sound and the Peconic Bay, along with its many inlets, harbors, and creeks.
