Nearly two dozen pooches took to the seas Wednesday night for a two-hour sunset cruise through Baldwin Harbor, Mansion Harbor, Randall Bay and Parsonage Cove with Captain Lou Fleet from the Woodcleft dock in Freeport.

Leashed dogs of all breeds, including a Great Pyrenees, a Poodle, a Chihuahua, a German Shepherd and many more of various ages and sizes, boarded the vessel with their owners. The dogs were excited and curious from the moment they boarded the cruise boat, sniffing the rails, ropes, benches and each other. Owners had a chance to meet other like-minded pet parents, exchange tidbits about their breed and help snap a few pictures of each other on the bow against the sunset.

Representatives from Nassau County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) were also onboard to promote their mission, spread awareness and help get two of their rescued dogs, Happy and Tony, rehomed and adopted into loving homes.
