Father's Day Cruises in Connecticut

If dad is a gourmand and thinks the perfect celebration of Father's Day is a dinner or brunch cruise, there are dozens of vessels in New York City serving up a variety of cuisine and cruise packages. If dad is the adventurous type, Connecticut coastal towns have an exciting variety of seafaring options available: charter cruises offering interactive activities with customized refreshments and everyone aboard can be family and friends on father's special day.

Ice Fire Charters

Does Dad have the need for speed? Ice Fire is a 42-foot Formula race boat that goes 50 miles per hour. This speed machine can take Dad and seven other adrenaline-junkies for a 30-minute jaunt down to New York City or for an extended cruise in the waters off Greenwich. Guests can bring their own refreshments or ask the skipper to cater the day. The craft has a full galley and head below decks. This charter will blow dad's hair back, literally.

Deborah Ann Fishing Charters

The Deborah Ann IV is custom through and through: a custom 38-foot Harris Sportfish, taking passengers on deep-sea fishing excursions customized to their preference and the fishing season, and providing custom catering. Full-day, half-day, and twilight (a great time to catch the big ones!) charters are available; in 2008 one passenger caught a 28-pound striped bass (or striper, as they are affectionately known in these parts). The Deborah Ann's galley and head are available for guest use, and the ample cabin offers warmth and shelter in inclement weather. Let Dad have the catch of the day on Father's day!

Sea Otter Fishing Charter and Party Boat

This charter is unabashedly referred to as a party boat. Sea Otter sails from three locations, two in New York and one from Stamford, on 45-foot Youngs Brother vessels that accommodate up to 49 people. Make Father's day a family reunion party aboard; Sea Otter will take the entire group on a whale watching trip, sightseeing anywhere the party wants to go, fishing--they will even ferry guests to Block Island and back. Inshore trips are scheduled for half and full days, and for night fishing charters. Offshore treks are full day, extended day, and overnight with special arrangements. All three vessels have large heated cabin with galley and head. Party on, Dad!
