Join Long Island Boat Rentals (LIBR) at HarborFest and experience their “History Tour of Manhasset Bay’s Gold Coast” aboard the Elixir Yacht. Sit in luxury during their escorted tour while learning about the Pan Am Clippers (seaplanes) that took off for Bermuda and Europe; John Philip Sousa’s home; the Sands Point Hotel and Beacon Towers, as well as the historic mining of “Cow Bay Sand” that built the sidewalks, subways, and the skyline of Manhattan! And bring home a beautiful free memento of the tour – an historical pictorial map of the waters and sights around the Cow Neck Peninsula. The contents of the map and tour information are provided courtesy of the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society.

LI Boat Rentals, Long Island’s premier boating service, will be offering hourly cruises around Manhasset Bay on Elixir the Saturday night (6-7 p.m.) before HarborFest and all-day Sunday (10-5 p.m.) Step aboard the custom designed, luxury party yacht and enjoy the Gold Coast mansions while experiencing history through your free pictorial map. The cost for the HarborFest cruises is $30 per adult ($5 discount for Adults only if purchased online by May 26) and $15 for those 12 years and younger. Elixir, a private luxury yacht for parties and events of up to 24 guests, is based in Port Washington and services the Tri-State area waters.
