2017 Schedule
Terms & Conditions

Get a new perspective on the history of Southern New England and Long Island when you do your sightseeing from the water - aboard the comfortable high-speed SEA JET. Choose from either of two great tours:

BugLight EXPANDED! Classic Lighthouse Cruise

Back and better than ever! We've added a stop at Bug Light - the pride of Long Island's East End Seaport Museum - to our already popular cruise. Enjoy views of nine lighthouses from New London to Long Island, plus two Revolutionary- era forts, and more!

Classic Cruise
BugLight NEW! Mainland & Fishers Island
Lights & Sights Cruise

Our newest cruise takes an architectural turn - paralleling the mainland coast out of New London Harbor to explore mansions and ritzy waterfronts from Watch Hill, RI to Fishers Island, NY. And we still make stops at eight different lighthouses!

Lights & Sights Cruise
Special Alternate Route

In the event that sea conditions or other weather related events prevent us from conducting either the Lights & Sights or Classic Cruise, we are offering an inland cruise that will include up to three lighthouses and a trip up the historic and scenic Thames River. This specially-narrated cruise will make its way past the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and the USS Nautilus Submarine Force Museum, home to the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine. We will also pass by the U.S Naval Submarine Base and its active fleet of submarines along with the sites of former historic forts and battlegrounds.
