Cast off the lines on one of Sailo’s fishing charters and we guarantee that you’ll increase the odds for a successful fishing trip. Try one of our favorite things to do in Oyster Bay: load up your bait-wells, make sure your cooler is packed with ice, and take full advantage of the clear waters of these fertile fishing grounds.

With plenty of things to do in Oyster Bay, a sail in the Harbor is an experience not to miss. Sailing past Center Island, you will pass Seawanhaka Corinthian YC, one of the first on the Sound. If you’re lucky, you’ll get to see Knickerbocker, a 95’ sailing yacht owned by Charles Dolan, and Vendetta, owned by Billy Joel. Oyster Bay is also the location of Sagamore Hill, the former residence of President Teddy Roosevelt. Make sure to include this escape on your summer bucket list.

Sunset cruise to Vanderbilt Estate

William K. Vanderbilt II was an incredible yachtsman, and motor car enthusiast. He loved nature and the ocean, collecting marine life, birds, and other cultural artifacts from his travels which are all reunited today on the grounds of his former Long Island estate. The Spanish-Revival style mansion allows you to travel back in time to the historic days of the Gold Coast. As you sail past, you will notice his seaplane hangar, and will enjoy a view up the sloping lawn to this beautiful home.
