F. Scott Fitzgerald's 1925 classic, The Great Gatsby  was set on "that slender riotous island" otherwise known as Long Island. Join us on a boat tour of the bay that ignited Fitzgerald's imagination and become familiar with the peninsulas of West Egg (King's Point) and East Egg (Sand's Point). 

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 $40. We limit the number of children's tickets. Please call 917-941-4504 for more information.

Payne Whitney built this stone-front and timber 14-room boathouse for his son John Hay "Jock" Whitney circa 1928. Cars, boats, his seaplane and trophies were housed here.
