Thimble Islands Private Cruise : Saturday, July 9

Take a 45 minute narrated tour of the Thimble Islands in Branford on the Volsunga for only $49 per person. We will have the boat all to ourselves for a private tour. The Thimble Island chain consists of 25 small rocky, wooded islands topped with beautiful summer cottages built during the Victorian Era-complete with ginger bread trimmings. Some isles have many homes and some just have one. All the islands are private except for one, Outer Island, which is trusted to the Federal Fish and Wildlife Department. From Multi-million dollar estates to small outposts and everything in between the scenery and topography of the land masses are beautiful.  

After the cruise, we will visit the U.S.S. Chowder Pot III in Branford for lunch (not included in price of trip). We will then stop at a farm stand in North Branford to a treat ourselves to a frozen custard.
