  • Club Fitness Hartford
    Hornet Marine President David Hartmann got his taste for boat design from his father, Hal, an engineer who helped create the smooth-riding deep-vee hull now included on each Hornet 17 speedboat. Today, the 17-foot seacrafts zip through the water with help from Mercury MerCruiser engines, each carrying up to five passengers perched on custom upholstery. Hornet Marine invites landlubbers on factory tours and test drives at its headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut, where a staff of nautical experts also keep ships shipshape with oil changes, detailing, and other boat-maintenance services.

  • Schooner Inc
    Schooner Inc began in 1975 as a means to highlight the plight of the Long Island Sound and to help amplify the positive difference that the Clean Water Act was starting to make in US waters. Today, the company connects more than 8,000 people each year to the beauty and history of New Haven Harbor via public sails, summer camps, and educational programs. For the last 23 years, the Quinnipiack?central Connecticut's only traditionally rigged tall ship?has hosted hands-on marine experiences for kids and adults. The New Haven mayor has officially decreed the schooner to be the city's flagship, as well as the ship Most Likely to Wear Couture Sails. The spacious boat was named to honor the Native Americans who inhabited the region and is helmed by an experienced and friendly crew.

  • Indian River Marina
    At Indian River Marina, gentle currents of scenic tidal wetlands host kayakers of all skill levels during four-hour nautical treks. To start each paddling odyssey, guests select from a medley of vessels including tandem, convertible, and recreational kayaks before launching from the marina's shores. As bluejackets drift atop the intimate waterways, layers of blossoming frondescence volunteer leafy greens to create a flowing framework of natural surroundings. After four hours of high-fiving the gregarious tides, shellbacks return to the marina to picnic or shower away the tears of overly attached oars.
