Once called “Bare” Island in the 1680s, this location is now home to nesting bird populations.
Private Boater Information:
Moorings at Peddocks are temporarily closed for maintenance and are not accepting reservations at this time. However, the public ferries to Peddocks are running on a regular schedule.
The long, winding landscape is what provides this location with its name, Snake Island. Over the course of history, the island passed through multiple owners. It briefly became the location for a group of squatters who were lobstermen and clammers. Now, it serves as a destination for local residents seeking an ideal spot for off-shore birding.
Visitation is strongly discouraged during nesting season, as the resident birds become very territorial.
