Excellent Cruise. Very informative. Narrator had wonderful, humorous and factual stories. We were able to see lighthouses, seals, and a beautiful sunset. Food is served on board.

Though very small this maritime museum was delightful. Photographs, ship models, a Fresnel Lens... A children's room for nautical arts and crafts is a nice addition.

Interesting museum about the history of Greenport and area light houses. It's small so does not take much time.

The Museum does not live up to it's location within the historic and beautiful Greenport train depot. What you will find is a haphazardly curated mishmash. Common guys and gals on the museum board. You have the preeminent location. Step up to the task and...More
