The smallest tour boat, Captain Dave Kusterer’s 26-foot port launch carries just 14 passengers but has the advantage of getting into areas of the Thimble Islands that larger boats can’t access.
Kusterer has been offering tours of the islands since 1986. Members of his family have shared a house on Kidd Island since 1903, and so Dave’s stories reflect his intimate knowledge of the islands’ history.
Cruises on The Islander run fromMemorial Day through mid-June on weekends and from mid-June through Labor Day full-time.
