Spring is winding down, but the season is shaping up to go out with a bang!

Long Island has plenty of great happenings of its own as well. In addition to fun events like the 2nd Annual Centereach Fair and Greenport Chowder Fest on Sunday, the Island will be host to the final leg of the Triple Crown as California Chrome attempts to go for a historic sweep at the Belmont Stakes. Whether you’re heading out or staying in, there’s a lot to do and see on Long Island over the next week!

Nab This Summer's Best Catch Aboard a Party Boat!
Relax and Get Ready to Reel in the Big One on an Long Island Party Boat!
You don’t need a boat of your own to enjoy recreational fishing on Long Island. There are plenty of party boat services to choose from to savor some time out on the open water. Instead of multi-tasking, trying to fish and navigate at the same time, you can simply enjoy the ride and focus on what you came to do, fish! In addition, these charter boats have many useful tools to help you make the catch, like top of the line navigation and fish tracking instruments, and you won't need to register or get a fishing license when you charter a ride on a party boat!
