The Tour Lasts 45 Minutes
Give yourself 10 to 15 minutes to find parking on the main roads around the dock vicinity- the dock is located on 4 Indian Point Rd, Stony Creek,CT 06405. Please use the public restrooms in town before boarding the boat. We board the boat at quarter of the hour and depart on top of the hour. It is a 45 minute live narrated boat ride. You will hear about the natural history of the islands, the shell fish industries that thrived in town and the building boom that occurred during the Victorian Era . We recount old stories and local legends and you will see picturesque scenery, including beautiful homes and shore birds.
We ask that people refrain from loud conversation and cell phone conversation while onboard as it is distracting for the people that want to hear the tour. A plea to parents with children, kids are expected to be behaved on the boat and the tour is not recommended for children under three – although everybody is welcome.
WE ARE HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE! A standard 26 inch wide wheelchair will have no problem getting on board. Please check the tide chart below to prepare for the best time to visit us. At low tide, the ramp can be very steep, while at high tide the ramp is flat. Stony Creek tide chart
