The Seaport Museum has so much to offer. You can really see the enormity of what they do if you come during the Maritime Festival held in September. It will be September 25, 26 & 27th in 2015. The cruises are great, fun, informative and educational. If you are a lover of lighthouses, history, the water, and have an appreciation... More

This charming museum runs a number of differing lighthouse tours - if you are interested in lighthouses and their historical role, one of these tours is about as good as it gets. You get up close to many (apparently there are more lighthouses off the town of Southold, NY than anywhere else) and can get off at one - the... More

You can always dream. After walking around we had lunch at Claudio,s outside deck. The food and service were very good. Will deffinitly made a return... More

Our experience aboard the Peconic Star Express was unforgettable. We were on the water for nearly five hours, encountering five different lighthouses: Bug Light, Orient Point Light, Plum Island Light, Little Gull Light, and Race Rock Light. Each one was quite different and all were fascinating. The captain and crew members were competent and kind as they brought us to... More

If you are a light house enthusiast-this is a small but good museum. If you are in Greenport take the time. Research ahead for local boat tours at very reasonable cost.

We had a negative experience with this place. We arrived there and tried to enter (OPEN sign was on the door). A rather unpleasant male blocked the door and informed me that though the sign said "OPEN," they were closed and that they had a special group coming and would not be opening to the public. Later in the afternoon... More
