“The tour was great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

We sailed on the Sea Mist cruise boat. The captain effectively narrated each of the island we cruised around. The weather was GREAT, and it was interesting seeing the various houses on each of the islands. Highly recommend this cruise especially if the weather is good.

“Thimble Islands- Rich with history.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

I am always looking for new, fun and exciting places to see. I decided to take a chance and cruise Thimble Island, with Captain Bob. What an amazing 45 minute narrated cruise, rich with history. Very peaceful, and a great way to spend an afternoon. Connecticut has many hidden gems, and this by far is on of them.

“We try to Make it an Every Summer Outing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We love taking one of the boat tour at the Thimble Island. We've gone in the summer for many years. Don't think we went last year, we'll have to take a trip out there this summer. It's great to be on the water and tour the islands.

“Great by Kayak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

We dumped our kayaks nearby and traveled through the islands. It was such fun. When we started, we were near a tour guide, so we listened to his opening speech and got our bearings. Great hidden charm! I think they also have some commercial guided tours

Take a trip on The Sea Mist to see one of the most beautiful sights around! Captain Mike knows the islands inside and out and gives a great tour! Beautiful to see!
