Charter An October Cruise with the Seaport Association

The best place to enjoy fall foliage is in New England. In Norwalk, the autumn colors seem to linger longer because of its’ southern location. Here, October is epitomized by clear cool days, brilliant blue skies, vivid fall foliage, and spectacular sunsets. This year, for the first time, the Seaport Association in Norwalk is extending the opportunity to charter their vessel, the T.J. Toth through October 31, 2020.

October is a very special time to be out on the water because the Connecticut coastline is alive with color. In addition to the foliage, October has two full moons, one during the first week of the month and the second, a rare blue full moon on October 31, that add beauty and a sense of excitement to this excursion. So, if you are a leaf peeper and looking for a unique foliage experience this year, charter the Seaport’s vessel, it is much less expensive than you think! The charter is two hours long and is available any time of day and at sunset during the week and on weekends for $750 or just $30 per person for twenty-five of your friends and family.

Passengers are allowed to bring food and beverages on board to add to the fun. Think hot apple cider and cider donuts for the kids and mulled wine for the adults for a truly autumn experience! The vessel is loaded with amenities including comfortable seating in and out of the sun, siding to protect passengers from the wind, a bar area that is the perfect place to set up the beverages and goodies you bring aboard, and a full bathroom.

This private excursion begins from the Seaport’s dock at 10 North Water Street in Norwalk. A captain and mate are on board so you can sit back and relax and take in the fabulous scenery. The boat cruises through Norwalk Harbor while the Mate introduces passengers to the multifaceted history of the Harbor. Close up views of Norwalk’s Islands, nesting ospreys, and, three lighthouses, including Sheffield Island Lighthouse are highlights of the trip all set against a backdrop of the fire colors of autumn.

If you are planning a special occasion or if you and your friends are looking for something really uplifting to do this October, nothing says “fun and foliage on the water” like this exclusive excursion offered by the Seaport Association. For additional information to charter the boat call the Seaport Office at 203-838-9444 or email jerry.toni@seaport.org.
