Visiting Hurricane Island
Visitors are welcome on Hurricane Island. Please check in with a staff member at the head of the main pier to get oriented and sign a liability form. We have a variety of trails to the north and central parts of the island that are publicly available (day use only). The southern end of the island and private houses there are off limits. Please respect their privacy and do not pass any “private” signs. Trail maps are available at the head of the main pier. We ask that as you hike around the island you do not enter any buildings and that you watch your step: There is unstable granite, and it can be extremely slippery when wet.
At this time there is no camping on the island. Fires and smoking are not allowed due to fire danger. Pets should be leashed, and owners should pick up after them.
Kayaks and dinghies can land on the sandy beach on the north end of the island. Larger boats landing at the float on the eastern side of the island should contact staff on VHF 16, and limit themselves to unloading and loading only. Hurricane has guest moorings and a small dingy that is available if you need to travel between your mooring and the float. There is a mooring fee of $25/night and $10/day.
