Great Gatsby Boat Tour on Long Island

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past,” wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald in The Great Gatsby. Now you can live that famous metaphor in a two-hour Great Gatsby Boat Tour of Manhasset Bay and Long Island Sound.

Adult tickets cost $25 and tickets for children 10-years-old or younger cost $15. The next tour leaves on Saturday, May 21st at 2 pm. Follow this link for tickets.

The Great Gatsby was set on “that slender riotous island” otherwise known as Long Island. Join us on a boat tour of the bay that ignited Fitzgerald’s imagination and become familiar with the peninsulas of West Egg (King’s Point) and East Egg (Sand’s Point) … Try to envision where Gatsby’s mansion might have stood and exchange stories of “the roaring twenties” on Long Island – a microcosm of the U.S.’s pre-WWII revolution in manners and morals.
