Block Island, RI & Martha's Vineyard, MA
After breakfast onboard, a complimentary bus from the vessel will take you to Ballard's Beach and Bar. Enjoy a half-day at Ballard's or organize your own adventure – fishing, birding, hiking, biking or joining an optional eco-kayak tour with a local guide. Return to our small ship by 1:30 and prepare to set sail for Martha's Vineyard where you will feast on a classic New England clamboil before having the evening on your own. The “Vineyard” is a summer colony known for celebrity sightings as much as its diverse terrain, people and lifestyle. Filled with harbor towns, gingerbread houses, sandy beaches and more than 40 different kinds of farms, including oyster, blueberry and dairy farms; the Vineyard is a veritable playground for food, nature and culture. Ocean side walks along bountiful beaches adorned with innovative sand castles will leave you smiling, especially if you are lucky enough to catch one of their magical sunsets.
