Family-friendly, accessible, and inclusive activities include: cycling with adaptive bikes, rides on pedicabs around the island, fishing lessons (bait, rod & reel ready for your lesson!), or cruise around the island aboard the MV Massachusetts.

Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the view! Don’t forget the sunscreen!
