Manhasset Bay Boat Tours – sponsored by the Nautical Advisory Council

  /  Manhasset Bay Boat Tours – sponsored by the Nautical Advisory Council

The Library is proud to announce the return of our popular Manhasset Bay Boat Tours, which are generously sponsored by the Library’s Nautical Advisory Council.  There will be a limited number of seats, chosen by random lottery, available on tours to be held on the following dates:

Thursday, September 1 from 5 to 7 p.m.  (lottery begins August 22 and will be open until 5 p.m. on August 25)
Wednesday, September 8 from 5 to 7 p.m.  (lottery begins August 29 and will be open until 5 p.m. on September 2)
Friday, September 16 from 5 to 7 p.m.  (lottery begins Sept. 7 and will be open until 5 p.m. on September 12)

Each 2-hour tour will offer sightseeing and education on Port Washington’s fascinating local history with a fully trained docent. Long Island Boat Rentals will provide each passenger with a copy of their Historical Tour Map which they can take home after the tour.

Spots on these tours will be available only to Port Washington cardholders or residents.  The minimum age is 5 years old.  You may only attend one of the tours. Once you have been selected for a tour, you may not enter any further tour lotteries. People can reserve up to 4 spots and individuals or groups will be chosen by a random lottery. One entry per group.  The cost per passenger is $15.00

Once individuals or groups of up to 4 people have been randomly chosen, they will be notified by phone and/or email and required to pay the fee in person at the Library prior to the scheduled tour.  Payment can be made by cash or credit card.

The boat (The Elixir) will depart from Inspiration Wharf at 405 Main Street which is approximately one block south of Town Dock.

Please note, filling out the sign-up form does not guarantee you a spot on the boat tour.  The limited spots will be chosen by a random lottery.  Those who are chosen will be notified by phone and/or email.  Please make sure to provide reliable contact information. If you are selected, you must confirm your attendance and provide payment within 48 hours of being notified or risk cancellation.
