Cold Spring Harbor’s long history is entwined with the water. Once a thriving whaling port, then an area known for turning wooden warships and other boats into building lumber, it’s now a place where visitors enjoy the tastes and sights. Cold Spring Harbor’s lures for day trippers include a fish hatchery, two museums, a state […]
Kayaking is a great way to relieve the stress of a long day and to get some much-needed exercise. Living in the wonderful seaside town of Bayville, I follow a ritual: I grab my blue Hobie Mirage Outfitter kayak, paddles, and life vest from my apartment, and head 10 feet down to the water. The […]

Take the Family to Cold Spring Harbor!
The Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery and Aquarium

Safely and successfully anchoring a boat depends on selecting the proper anchor, choosing a good site, and linking the two through an effective connection that starts on the deck and reaches to the water’s bottom with a secured anchor.

The Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium was founded in 1883 by New York State as a fish hatchery. When the State wanted to close the Hatchery in the late 1970s, Julia F.

Boating on Long Island can be more than just recreational. We’re so intertwined with our surrounding waters that it is interesting to visit our many maritime museums for a deep appreciation of our region’s history. For a different kind of day tripper, combine then with now and take your boat to visit a few of Long Island’s nautical museums.
