Welcome to Hard Tail Charters

Home of the Hard Tail, the most rugged little ship in the fleet!

We offer water taxi service and harbor cruises along the magnificent coastline from Watch Hill, Rhode Island, to Stonington and Mystic, Connecticut, and out to Fishers Island, New York. A new season is here, and, like you, we’re hoping for beautiful, temperate weather–because nothing is better than a carefree, sun-drenched day on the sea!

Unfortunately, we can’t control the weather. But one thing we can guarantee this and every season is our commitment to providing you with a memorable experience and reliable service. Our water taxi service to area attractions and destinations will allow you to explore the shops and restaurants in the picture-perfect seaside villages of Stonington Borough and Mystic, Connecticut, at your leisure. Perhaps you’re planning a golf outing on Fishers Island, with a can’t-miss tee time? Hard Tail Carters will drop your party off directly on the Fisher Island Club’s private dock, just off the 17th hole. No matter your itinerary or point of departure, Hard Tail Charters will accommodate you.

We’re also excited to again be offering our Boat Camping Special this season. Spend the night under the stars on our private, semi-secluded mooring, aboard your own floating hotel room—the Hard Tail! Please contact us for more information.

As any true salt will tell you, a day spent on the water is a very good day indeed. So call us today to plan your ideal adventure!
