CaptainMike Infantino and his sons operate SeaMist Thimble Islands Cruise fromMay to mid-October. A familyowned business since 1960, The SeaMist is the largest of the tour boats. The two-deck, 44 ft. Chesapeake design vessel can carry 49 passengers for sightseeing and 38 passengers for private charter.
Infantino says that people come on the tours from all over the east coast and as far as Europe, Hawaii, and Canada.
“Geologically, it’s very different than any place else on the coast,” Infantino says. “It’s the most concentrated group of islands. For the glacial period to leave this here was something truly unique.”
Infantino has been doing the tours for 38 years and points out that the basic history never changes.
