From their waterfront post on Southold Bay, the seasoned mariners of Eagle's Neck Paddling Company rent kayaks to facilitate adventures through the estuaries and arteries of Long Island's North Fork. Daily kayak tours depart in the morning and evening, whereas lessons with certified instructors equip explorers with the skills to serenely navigate waters populated by herons, egrets, turtles, and former CEOs who have decided to live off the grid.

Visitors to Greenport Art & Design choose to paint their own dessert plates or three holiday ornaments before the functional sculptures are glazed and fired in the kiln. Stamps, stencils, design ideas, and séances with Picasso are among the tools and resources available during an hour of studio time, when each guest grabs a brush and creates a one-of-a-kind piece. Artists pick up their glossy finished products 7–10 days later. The lustrous, resulting items are nontoxic and dishwasher-, oven-, and microwave-safe in case craftspeople decide to bake a traditional ornament casserole.
