Spend a summer’s day aboard the Volsunga for a private cruise of the Thimble Islands. Just off the coast of Connecticut, you’ll hear stories of pirates, local lore and legends dating back to the 1600s when the islands were first discovered. An archipelago made up of small, rocky, wooded, private isles, the Thimble Islands are topped with Victorian-era summer cottages. The Thimbles are often called the little islands with the big history. Many well-known people have called the islands home including Tom Thumb, President William Taft and even the pirate, Captain Kidd!
Prior to your cruise, visit the Connecticut Trolley Museum for a narrated ride on an antique trolley! The museum features many vintage railcars dating back to the 1800s. Enjoy a three-course lunch at the U.S.S. Chowder Pot, voted “Best Seafood in Connecticut” for the last seven years! Start with their award-winning New England Clam Chowder and then your choice of entree, including lobster!
