If you’re the type of boater who seeks peace, natural beauty, good food and history, you won’t want to miss the next episode of New England Boating TV. Essex, Connecticut, is considered a must-stop on the bucket list of many boaters, and after visiting this lovely town in late August, we can see why.

New England Boating co-hosts Parker Kelley and Tom Richardson got a good taste of all that Essex has to offer, including a stay at the historic Griswold Inn, boater-friendly accommodations at the Essex Island Marina, a river tour with Ben Wilde of Wilde Yacht Sales, a ride on the Essex Steam Train and much more! They even catch (and learn how to prepare) blue crabs with some local sharpies.
