Welcome to the Orient Cruising Guide!

 

The Osprey's Guide by Bug Light

 

The eastern end of long island is often described as a "fish tail".  Orient is located on the northern most "Tail".  Unlike Montauk located on the "southern tail", Orient is a quiet area that is far less populated.  This area is often overlooked by boaters  who prefer to visit Shelter Island, Sag Harbor, East Hampton or Montauk.  This area is among the most quiet and tranquil on the east end.  Orient over looks the waters of Long Island Sound and Gardiner's Island.  Orient's shores also have spectacular views of the Orient Lighthouse, Plum Island and "Plum Gut".

This Cruising Guide is separated into three areas of concentration; Orient Point, Orient Harbor and Hallock BayOrient Harbor and Hallock Bay are secluded and well protected bodies of water, while Orient Point offers a busy inlet.  Orient Harbor and Hallock Bay are protected from Gardiners bay by a long strip of beach called Long Beach Preserve.  The preserve is the home to numerous forms of wildlife including several ospreys.
