Relax and enjoy a 45 minute narrated cruise around The Thimble Islands

Welcome aboard The Sea Mist. Relax and enjoy a 45 minute narrated cruise around The Thimble Islands.

First discovered in 1614 by Adrien Block, these islands were used for everything from farming to quarrying granite, from bootlegging to hiding Captain Kidd’s treasure. Captain Kidd sailed here in 1665…you can still feel his presence today.

After the sightseeing tours, we transform our vessel into a private charter boat for a party or dinner cruise. You can bring your own food and beverage or have it completely catered. We suggest, if you are just going to party or have hors d’oeuvres that you invite 38 or less. For dinner, we suggest 26 to 34 persons. Enjoy a 2 hour or longer cruise as the scenery slowly changes along the coastline of Branford and up the Branford River, the Thimble Islands and coastal Guilford to Sachems Head.
