Across Dock Road from the Three Village Inn, The Ward Melville Heritage Organization’s pontoon boat “Discovery” departs from the Stony Brook Yacht Club marina. The 27-passenger vessel cruises through the organization’s 88-acre wetlands preserve for a 1 1/2 hour tour. An on-board naturalist from the Stony Brook University Marine Sciences Center describes the wildlife and flora you’ll see. Advance reservation tickets are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors 60+ and students, and $18 for children under 6.
Cruises are scheduled according to the tide table from May through October.
