It’s November, but if you are anything like me, you still have your boat in the water hoping to get out one last time before the snow comes. With everyone chattering about this bad winter we are supposed to have, you best get moving!
After consulting with Captain Ted (my go-to captain of choice), we came up with these fun excursions for your last hurrah. Here are our top six destinations to visit by boat this autumn.
1. Connecticut River, CT
Take a ride to the Connecticut River to see the changing leaves and more. It’s only a quick trip from Mattituck Inlet.

2. Mystic River, CT
Not to be confused with the somber 2003 film of the same name (named after Boston’s Mystic River), this fun destination is yet another short ride from Mattituck Inlet and there is so much to do. Shopping, casino, the aquarium, you name it. Visit http://www.visitconnecticut.com/mystic_eastern/ for more info.
3. Newport, RI
Seriously, Newport is so much fun with lots to do and see. Bar none, one of my favorite places to visit, especially in the fall!

4. Strong’s Water Club on Mattituck Inlet
Such a fun place to go wine tasting. Pace’s Dockside offers flights of many North Fork Wines, a great outdoor tiki area and then some.

5. Greenport Village
So much fun and so easy to get to by boat. Shops, restaurants, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company on Carpenter Street. If you live and play on the North Fork, it doesn’t get easier than this!
6. Sag Harbor Village
I love going to Sag by boat. And I really love Harlow East. Located in the former B. Smith restaurant building at 1 Long Wharf, Harlow is yum and fun all wrapped in one!
