Grant's Charters – Located in the Promise Harbor Marina, Captain Doug Grant has owned and operated Grant's Charters for over twenty-five years. His experience and depth of knowledge guarantee a safe, productive and fun trip. We provide all rods, reels, bait and tackle. June is the start of summer fishing season when the Striped Bass, Blue Fish and Fluke move to the shoals of Greenbush Island. June fishing season yields excellent results because of the wide variety of bait available including sand eels, squid, butter fish, scup, and herring. At this time of year there are lots of Bass and Blues and they're super hungry from their northerly migration. June has some of our best Bass and Blue action.

Sunset Bluff – Located at the edge of town, this scenic destination attracts thousands of tourists each summer to the trails and cliffs overlooking the ocean. Also a popular make-out spot for locals.

Promise Harbor Memorial Arena – Home to the Promise Harbor Hawks hockey team. Open to tourists looking for sports memorabilia related to local hockey star, Jackson Knight.

Tompkins Corners – Thirty minutes northwest from Promise Harbor, the town of Tompkins Corners boasts Tompkins Lake State Park and the Hotel Grand.

Hotel Grand – Once the pride of Tompkins Corners, the Hotel Grand has fallen on hard times recently. Owner Alice Dubrovnik is determined to bring the Grand back to its former glory. Luscious breakfast pastry courtesy of the hotel’s new chef, Greta Brewster.

Tompkins Lake – Massachusetts State Park and popular picnic spot for the residents of Tompkins Corners. After dark, a great place for a little romance (just ask Greta and Hank).

Greenbush Island -  not as well known as the Vineyard or Nantucket, but becoming a fashionable destination for well-to-do tourists. The beaches  are pristine and serene, with some protected local plant species. The two small towns on the island are home to quaint shops and galleries, and a number of luxury hotels and inns, recently  built to take advantage of the growing tourism. The Oceanside Inn is a particularly lovely destination for family or for that special romantic occasion - the honeymoon package is delightful.
