The Day Trip Of A Lifetime You Can Only Take In Connecticut

Have you been longing to visit paradise? Well, you don’t have to leave Connecticut behind for a piece of island magic. You can opt for one of the state’s Thimble Islands cruises instead. You just sit back, relax, and soak in the views. When it comes to boat tours, few are more stunning than these Thimble Islands cruises. If you weren’t already longing for summer, you certainly will be now.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

There are three boats that offer Thimble Island cruises, each following different routes. You can check out their websites to decide for yourself which boat is the best fit. The boats are the The Islander, The Sea Mist, and the Volsunga IV.
