Family Day on Hurricane

All food is included (snacks, water, lunch). Bring a water bottle, sunscreen, layers, and rain gear if the forecast suggests it. In the same day you might need a down parka and later be in shorts! Wear sturdy and comfortable shoes that can handle uneven terrain, and bring long sleeves or a windbreaker for the boat trips across the bay. In the event of rain, we have plenty of comfortable indoor spaces and activities that will allow full enjoyment of Hurricane Island; this is a rain, shine, or fog event.

Round-trip transportation is aboard the Reliance from Journey’s End Marina in Rockland or aboard Eastern Flyer from the floats next to the ferry landing in Carver’s Harbor on Vinalhaven. Parking is available around the marina or in the Rockland municipal lots surrounding the marina. The boat departs at 9:30AM and will return by 4:30PM. To reserve a space, email or phone (207) 867-6050. Minimum Donation $35 per adult.
