Things To Do this Weekend - September 7, 2013

Just because school is back in session, summer is not over! There's still lots of GREAT weather left here in the Sodus - Sodus Point, New York area.  And there's still lots of GREAT things to do!  Like.............

.......Taking a cruise around Sodus Bay and to

My husband and I recently did this for my birthday this past Wednesday.  We took a 2 & 1/2 hour evening sunset cruise around Sodus Bay.  Captain Bruce is well versed on the history of the bay and the islands within. We first headed out towards the channel to see if it was safe enough to go out into Lake Ontario to head over to Chimney Bluffs. We could see a storm off in the distance and the waves were kicking up, so the weather did not permit us to leave the bay on this evening.

We then headed over to Crescent Beach, a long, thin strip of beach with several cottages on it. The only way to get to these cottages is by boat. We cruised around LeRoy Island, which is the only island accessible by car. The Captain thought he spotted a Bald Eagle.  There's always a plethora of wildlife to enjoy.  We cruised around Newark Island and Eagle Island. These are only accessible by boat as well, and then down to the bottom of the bay and back to the dock.

Sodus Bay is the largest safe harbor embayment on the south Shore of Lake Ontario and rich in history. Winter Spring, Summer of Fall, there's always something to do here. 

It was a very relaxing evening cruise on Sodus Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to do a Fall Foliage Cruise with Captain Bruce and Mary.

The captain provides soft drinks, water and snacks, but you can bring your own. We brought some wine and local cheese and crackers, shrimp cocktail, and chocolate covered strawberries my son sent me for my birthday and shared with our Captain and First Mate.

Captain B's Custom Cruises are still operating through mid October - weather permitting - Weekday evenings  6 PM to 8:30 PM and weekends starting at 10 AM.
