For safety reasons, no children under 8 years with be allowed on these trips. There will be no charge, but we hope that visitors will make a “good will offering” either on the island or at the registration tent. All proceeds will be used for maintenance of the historic lighthouse. Reservations for the ferry must be made through our email address at firstname.lastname@example.org. Passengers should supply a cell phone number, as cancellation of each trip may be done on short notice due to weather and/or sea conditions.
The island will be open to private vessels on Saturday September 6th. Please anchor west of the island. A water taxi will be available from 10:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. No private vessels will be allowed in the boat basin. Dingy, small launch, and kayaks can land on the beach north of the basin.
