Cruising on the Peconic Star

[vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_column_text]The recently purchased and renovated Peconic Star Cruise Line is sailing out of Greenport with Captain Will Lieblein at the helm. The village native is taking his passion for the sea to the public with cruises for kids, lighthouse and seal watching tours, and sunset and stargazing cruises. Whether you want to find your flow with Namaste on the Bay, or enjoy a romantic sunset cruise around the North Fork, Peconic Star is cruising around the harbors and bays of the North Fork.

Captain Lieblein’s connection to the sea is deep as his grandfather and uncles founded Port of Egypt in Southold in 1946, allowing much of his childhood to be spent in and around the water. Peconic Star was built in 1944, serving as an air-sea rescue boat for the US Army. She was called many names over the last seven decades and had many uses, but has now settled as an excursion boat exploring the waters of the East End.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”normal”][vc_single_image image=”19724″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][vc_separator type=”normal”][vc_column_text]
