Yacht clubs founded before the turn of the 20th century grace the harbor and continue Port Washington's yachting tradition. The homes of such legendary businessmen as Carl Fisher and John Hay (Jock) Whitney stand as they did in the days of the Prohibition. Try to envision where Gatsby's mansion might have stood and exchange stories of "the roaring twenties" on Long Island - a microcosm of the U.S.'s pre-WWII revolution in manners and morals.
This 90-minute tour of Manhasset Bay and Long Island Sound is $25 for adult tickets, half-price for children 10 years old and younger.
One Tour at a Time - September 28 is next
We hope to offer a tour date each month of the 2013 season. If the September date sells out, October 26 will be the next and last tour. See our Facebook page for updates.
