If you are a history buff, don’t miss this 90 minute tour. Learned more about the Groton/New London area during this tour than in all my years in school.

Dear Jockeycap, Thanks for your great review. We're so pleased that you enjoyed our Submarines, Battlefields, & Betrayers tour. Our guides are just the best and what bettter way to hear the military stories of the Thames River than on one of our navy utility boats. Please join us again next year when we'll be cruising and docking at our new landing site at the Submarine Force Library & Museum/USS Nautilus.

The water taxi that travels to Groton, Ft Trumbull and New London leaves from this lovely little park. The water taxi is an excellent way to travel to the Fort and to New London. Check the schedule before you go. The boat captain and first mate were terrific, answering all of our questions and sharing loads on information. The cost of the water taxi was very reasonable - $10. There is free public parking nearby so we left our card there for the day. This little park is also very close to Ft. Griswold, another great place to visit.

Wonderful way to get some history in your day! Traveling by boat to local landmarks was such a unique treat! Captain Mark and his shipmate Logan were very informative and hospitable. Both of our children (14y,10y) had a great time and learned a lot. Definitely will be doing this again!

WOW!!! If you haven't been on this fun and cool water taxi you are missing out. Captain Mark was knowledgeable about the area and told us a little history about him in the Navy and about the boat. He was amazing and his shipmate Logan was very helpful with making sure we all are safe. They offer water and soda, cheap and the money goes to a good charity. Back half of the boat is covered and the front half you can enjoy the sun. This taxi goes from downtown New London to Fort Griswold and then to Fort Trumbull. If you haven't discovered this amazing little water adventure, then what are you waiting for. The price of the taxi is affordable and they even offer seasonal passes.
