The Island is open to visitors between 10AM and 5PM, from June 15 through Labor Day. Smoking is permitted only on the sand and rocks on the south side of the pier.
Please note that because of bird nesting, the trails are open only after July 15.
The tours by Cdr. Ed Stafford are no longer being offered. However, since 2008 we have been providing the same information in an audio tour, at no charge.
Because the Island is a bird nesting sanctuary, no dogs are allowed. Fires are not permitted at any time.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO VISIT THE ISLAND
FIRST: BY YOUR OWN BOAT
Skippers, land your passengers at the float and a Park Ranger will direct you to a mooring near the pier and, if you do not have a dinghy, will transport you back to the pier.
Moorings in the vicinity of the pier are on a first come basis. If full, you can wait return later, or a Park Ranger can tell you where to anchor.
Fees are as follows: Children under 5 - Free
Ages 5 to 11 - $1
Ages 12 to 64 - $ 3 for Maine resident, $4.50 for non-resident
Ages 65 and over - Free for Maine resident, $1.50 for non-resident
