Beautiful day. With great tour. My son drove the boat most of the time. Dave is above and beyond with his client. Well worth the time with your family. Awesome ride. And Gene was a sweet as well

Save your $. This was a trip around the docks so he could advertise his boat to on-lookers . He imparted little history, and told unenjoyable “jokes” , going so far as making fun of one of the overweight children on board. Choose another boat,...More

David is a very entertaining captain and made it fun for all. The kids got lollipops, and got to steer the boat. Perfect time for a quick trip around the harbor.

The tours usually are an hour plus. Best to get there in Greenport docks early to set up a time. I’m sure he’s going to be bust with July 4 a few days away

Beginning on Memorial Day weekend Glory will do three trips daily, everyday but Tuesday. If it rains we don't go unless folks want to, as they sometimes do. All monies are then refunded. Thank you
