Montauk Cruising Guide:
Things To Do

 

Montauk offers an endless array of recreational activities.  Here are a few ideas....

Beaches & Sunbathing...

Montauk is famous for its miles of deserted pristine beaches with the Atlantic Ocean on the south and the Block Island Sound on the north. From the southern anchorage in Montauk Harbor, you can easily walk across to the ocean using local paths.

Block Island...

If the weather is too foggy or rough for your vessel, take the ferry.  Ferries transport people and bicycles (no cars) to Block Island on a daily basis between May and September.   Day trips on gambling boats to New London to visit the casinos can also be arranged from the Viking dock

Fishing...

Montauk is the fishing capital of the eastern seaboard.  Ocean fishing for tuna, shark and other game fish is a popular sport with charter and party boats leaving the docks daily.  Locals indicate that they hold more world records for landing large fish than any other port in the world. See our General Guide for information on local charter boats.

The depth and movement of the water make this an outstanding spot for surf casting.  When the fish are running, you can catch one as large as any coming off of the boats without paying the daily fee.

Harbor Cruises...

Shopping...

Montauk is the home of numerous great shops and specialty stores.  Gossman's dock is easily accessible from the harbor and offer plenty of ways to spend your money.  If you are staying at any of the marinas or anchorages in the northern section of the harbor, gaining access to the shopping areas is fast, fun and easy.

Walking & Hiking...

There is no shortage of places to walk and things to do in Montauk.  The marinas, fishing boats, shops and novelty stores in the west harbor can keep you entertained for days.  From Lake Montauk it is a short walk to town and the ocean.  The lighthouse is and state park areas is quite a hike, but not undoable.

Whale Watching...

Whale watching has become popular recently and the Finback II boasts daily sightings of whales and bottlenose porpoise.
