Several marinas and boatyards are on both sides of the river at Patchogue.
Passenger ferry service, summer only, is maintained from Patchogue to Davis Park and Watch Hill on Fire Island.
A marina, on the east side of Corey creek just inside the entrance, has berths, electricity, gasoline, marine supplies, water, ice, storage, and a 16-ton lift; hull, engine, and electronic repairs can be made. Depths of 5 feet were reported at the marina in 1985.

The Patchogue River, on the north side of Great South Bay, 3.7 miles west of Bellport and 0.9 mile westward of Swan River, is entered through a dredged channel that leads from Great South Bay, thence through Patchogue Bay, and thence to the head of river navigation about 1 mile above the mouth. In 2006, the midchannel controlling depth was 5.8 feet in the entrance channel to the west breakwater light, thence 2.2 feet in the channel through the harbor to the head of navigation. The channel is marked by a lighted and unlighted buoys from the bay to the jettied entrance. The west side of the entrance is protected by a breakwater with a light on the outer end, and the east side by a bulkhead and short jetty extending southward from it; a private light is near the end of the jetty.
Corey Creek, 0.6 mile westward of Patchogue River, is entered between two jetties each marked by a private seasonal light. In 1981, depths of 3 feet were available in the creek.
