What once served a variety of diverse purposes is now the location of wild vegetation and structural ruins.
There will be no public ferry service May 20-24. Georges and Spectacle remain open to private water crafts.
With rocky beaches, beautiful salt spray roses, and vistas atop grassy bluffs, this small island has served a number of purposes over the course of history. It was once the home of John Gallop, one of the region’s first harbor pilots. The island later served as the location for a restaurant and inn, military camp, quarantine station, and radio school.
Unfortunately, due to the presence of asbestos, the island is currently closed to the public.
