Yesterday was our first day of Harbor Seal Watching tours and it was great!!! We saw more  than 75 Seals on both the 11am and 2pm trips. If you'd like to come, give us a call to ensure a spot on one of the trips! Here are a couple of the pictures taken by Matt Kaplan on the 2pm trip. 


I wanted to thank all the folks from the Sandel Senior Center of Rockville Centre for coming out on the boat today. We saw tons of Seals and everyone had a great time! I hope to see you all this summer


Awesome news everyone!!!! Sonny's Canal House, a staple for great food and drink for over 100 years, will become a drop off point for the Freeport Water Taxi & Tours boat. The wonderful owners, John and Chris will be offering FWT & T passenger specials as well as Thursday night theme cruises throughout the summer. Please join us in welcoming them to our family!

I wanted to thank Chris and John personally for allowing us to stop at their great establishment!

Drink Specials All Weekend!!! 


We are now offering Happy Hour specials!!!. The cruises will sail at 4:30pm Tuesday - Friday and arrive back at the dock at 6pm (just in time to dine at the great restaurants on the "Mile"). On board, you can enjoy 2 for 1 drinks and snacks. 


We had another first on the Freeport Water Taxi & Tour boat today. John and Paige got engaged on the boat!!!! it was awesome! As I told them, the moon and stars definitely aligned for these two as we had the most beautiful sunset cruise so far this year, the most beautiful weather and the most curious Harbor Seals watching the proposal. We feel so honored to be part of their special day; good luck!!!!


Great News!!!! We were voted #32 of the "Top 50 Things To Do This Summer" by Newsday's Explore LI 2013 Guide!!! One issue that makes it even better is that the published price of $35 is wrong! It's only $20 per person for the sunset cruise!!! Come Join Us!


Finally!!!!!!! The sun has come out. After not sailing due to weather for 2 weeks, we are happy to announce that we are having beautiful sunsets cruises once again. Last night's sunset was amazing and everyone had a blast!!! Our new "Nite Blues" Bar on board was hopping with our new Specialty Drink menu. Come and join us!

May/June 2014

Between the Memorial Day Weekend Air Show and the start of our "Wines, Spirits & Craft Beer - Summer Series", we got off to a great Summer season. We had both boats out for the air show and our first wine tasting was awesome. Please check out our events calendar for upcoming cruises and special events.


As we get ready for the 2014 season, we listened to all of you and the suggestions you gave us last year. Several of your ideas will be implemented in 2014, some are as follows:

1) On Saturday's and Sunday's from May 1st thru August 31st, we will be doing Beach Drop Off's at one of the many bay beaches in our area. We'll nudge up to the beach to disembark and pick you up later in the afternoon the same way. As of now, they are scheduled for an 11am sail time and a 4:30 pick up. 

2) Several of you suggested that we move the Happy Hour Cruises up so that they're more convenient for the 9-5ers! Thanks and here's what we've done. For the 2014 season, we're offering 2, one hour Happy Hour Cruises, one from 5-6pm and the other from 6-7pm;

both will of course have drink specials!!! 

3) We also heard you with regard to our snack selection and hot drinks. We have just purchased a snack oven and a coffee maker! We can now offer 12" pizza's and HOT pretzels!!! We will also be serving coffee, hot chocolate and a variety of hot bar drinks such as Irish Coffee!!!

We want to hear more, Please let us know how we can improve the Freeport Water Taxi & Tour boat to make it the best "On Water Experience Ever". You can always contact us via e-mail, phone, Facebook or Twitter

I wanted to personally thank all of our guests who came out this Summer on one of our many cruises/tours. You were all so wonderful and I hope you'll all come back again. I'd also like to thank my crew who did an unbelievable job and learned to anticipate the crazy owner's (me!) next move!!! Please join us for our great Seal Watching & Wildlife Tours this fall and the Spring of 2015.  

Thanks again. Capt. Rick Cohen

July 2014

Our Happy Hour Cruises are starting to become really popular as well as our new Fishing Excursion offering. The 2 for 1 drink specials are awesome and on July 12th we had the Tracy, the Bacardi rep on the boat handing out free shots of Bacardi Flavored Rums throughout both Happy Hour cruises.  The Fishing Excursions are done on our fishing boat; the My Bonni IV, and is able to accommodate one to six guests. We offer bay and ocean fishing and provide everything you'll need for a great day on the water. The excursions are based on chartering the whole boat and are priced at $450 for a half day and $750 for a full day.
