My friends and I had a wonderful Sunset Cruise on Wed with the Waterfront Center. I couldn't be more impressed with the friendly crew. They shared great stories about the areas we toured and the history too. The boat itself was large and clean. We brought some cheese and crackers and it was easy to find a place to spread it out. The kids loved it and even got to take time at the wheel. Such a wonderful way to spend sunset and see some beautiful parts of the northern coast of Long Island. I would highly recommend this cruise and hope to make it back out there again in a few weeks. Great value for the money too.

I did my Safety Sail yesterday in preparation for the upcoming season. I enjoy renting a Sonar and going out with our family and dog for a few hours on weekends. It appears they have a bunch of brand new 10' and 11' stand up paddle boards so I can't wait to take those out. All around fantastic facility.

Great way to spend some quality time with the kids. Took my 10 & 8 year olds kayaking. not every place rents to kids so this was a treat to find such a close place to home. Staff was helpful when i needed cords to tow my 8 year old that got tired, helpful with keeping things organized and making sure people had their masks on the whole time until they got in the kayak. Great experience overall.

My wife and I rented a double kayak and it's a very nice way to enjoy an hour on the calm water of the Oyster Bay area.
