Excellent Cruise. Very informative. Narrator had wonderful, humorous and factual stories. We were able to see lighthouses, seals, and a beautiful sunset. Food is served on board.

Though very small this maritime museum was delightful. Photographs, ship models, a Fresnel Lens... A children's room for nautical arts and crafts is a nice addition.

Tucked between the Fireboat Firefighter Museum and the Greenport Railroad Museum of Long Island, this a great place to take the kids for brief look at some local maritime history. The museum is small enough to keep kids intrigued bore you hop on board one...More

It's located in the original train station now serving as the museum. There are items on ship design, far flung whaling, defense of the nation including the Nazi threat, lighthouse lights, and many other topics. Great story about a local restaurant owner whose seafaring life...More

Our trip to Long Island wouldn't be complete without the light house tour. Such fascinating history and to think they are privately maintained. A vital role in maritime history, these light houses were an adventure. I dont mind being on the waves, so we enjoyed...More
