Tours / Events

Tired of the same old routine? Looking for a new activity or perhaps a relaxing weekend get-away? Well then mix it up with one of our exciting tour packages. From viewing Spring's blossom in New England, meandering, and action packed gambling, to skiing, you are bound to find a new event or destination to spice things up.

The only driving you have to do is from your house to the North Shore harbor community of Port Jefferson. Then just walk right on board… and we’ll do the rest! On your voyage across the Sound, relax with a drink in our cozy Steamboat Lounge; go topside and soak up some sun and the sea breeze or check out our snack bar. Once we dock in Bridgeport, Connecticut, you will be met by motor coach and travel to the destination.

Whether you take a same day or overnight tour aboard the Bridgeport/Port Jefferson Ferry you can make any day... A special day!
