Join Prime Time™ for a narrated cruise tour of Connecticut’s charming Thimble Islands. Located in and around the harbor of Stony Creek, the Thimbles are a chain of 25 small rocky, wooded islands topped with beautiful summer cottages built during the Victorian era. Learn about these incredible homes and the fascinating history of the area.   

Following our cruise, we’ll enjoy lunch at The U.S.S. Chowder Pot III, winner of numerous awards from Connecticut Magazine and voted Best Seafood for 18 years in a row by the New Haven Advocate. Today’s entrée choices are Baked Stuffed Shrimp, Baked Stuffed Breast of Chicken (stuffed with apple cranberry stuffing and topped with a creamy supreme sauce) or English Cut Slow Roasted Prime Rib.       

After dessert, we’ll re-board our motorcoach for home but first, we’ll make a stop at Bishop’s Orchards in Guilford, CT. This family-owned and operated farm was started in 1871 and is now into its seventh generation. There’s time to pick up some freshly made baked goods, enjoy an ice cream from their creamery or indulge in a wine tasting.
