‪Beautiful ride and day on the Island‬
يوليو 2021
‪The ferry was great and the staff was engaging. The island was beautiful and had beautiful views. The lighthouse is neat but we couldn't go up into the light (there was no light anyway). It was nice for something to do that day. I would love to do the other cruises and activities they offer some time.‬

‪Visit to Sheffield Island‬
أغسطس 2019
‪This is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon. The boat trip out to the Island is delightful. The tour of the lighthouse is very interesting. There is a nice picnic area so bring your lunch and enjoy the beautiful water surroundings and views. Please bring bug spray as the mosquitoes can be a problem.Also wear long pants as it helps.‬

‪Beautiful Excursion on LI Sound‬
أغسطس 2019
‪We had a wonderful experience on the boat ride and time spent on Sheffield Island. The views are beautiful, and it's a perfect getaway for just a few hours on a nice day. The narration on the boat ride was informative, even for this Norwalker, and the tour of the lighthouse was quite interesting. Next time, I will pack some of my own snacks since there are only chips, water, and hot dogs available on the island, and bug spray. Great location for photos.‬

‪Excellent Staycation‬
أغسطس 2019
‪My wife and I hadn't been there in years and we're looking for a fun way to spend the day. The ferry ride was great with Capt John at the wheel and first mate Warren doing the narrative. We learned a lot about the area and surrounding islands thanks to Warren!. On the island, we were greeted by Graham who gave us a tour of the lighthouse and was fun and informative. The only words of caution..... Use the bug spray (for the gazebo picnic area) and wear your grungy sneakers. The Grass areas are loaded with goose droppings! To bad, otherwise I'd rate it a solid 5 stars!‬

‪Nice Summer Day Outing for Families or Seniors‬
أغسطس 2019
‪We were looking for a day outing with our 6 year old granddaughter and thought this would b a fun excursion. Getting to the dock was easy and parking is right there. Very easy to get to from I-95. We had booked our tickets ahead of time and read reviews so knew enough to bring bug spray. Turns out the bugs were plentiful and the trail was closed, and even though I was disappointed, we didn't need it in the time we had.

The ferry ride as about 35 minutes, relaxing. The ferry passes a private island that was once owned by the Broadway producer Billy Rose. It must have been wonderful in his lifetime.

The lighthouse is neat, identical to the North Lighthouse on Block Island. It is furnished in the late 1880's and was fun to share with our granddaughter. We could do two floors but not to the top.

The coast is rocky and not great for barefeet if you want to walk along the water and there really isn't a place on the beach to sit. There are Adirondack chairs in several spots for relaxing and watching the water. There was one area near the boat dock where kids went into the water. We picked up shells and rocks and had a rock tossing contest. I wish we had brought her bathing suit so she could have gotten all wet but it was fine.

We packed some food and the hotdogs were "eh" - nothing to savor. Getting to the pavilion to eat was tricky as you had to watch out for all the geese droppings. It ws an obstacle course.

The views are wonderful, even on a hot day it was cool out there. Only 35 minutes off the mainland and you feel worlds away. I wish we could've stayed longer but it is timed and then it is back to the ferry for the return ride.

A family could make a day of it by doing this, grabbing some lunch and then going to the Aquarium which is right there.‬

‪A relaxing escape close to home‬
أغسطس 2019
‪Went to South Norwalk and Sheffield Lighthouse as a day trip from NYC in early August. The ferry ride out was lovely and relaxing, and the operators pointed out local points of interest and history along the way. The main attractions on the island itself are the lighthouse itself, a cute little snack shop, a nature trail (full of mosquitos; use the complimentary bug spray upon arrival on the island), and walking along the shore. In place of sand, you walk over millions of tiny shells! The Saturday we came here the weather was very hot and humid; I recommend bringing a picnic basket and going when it's a wee bit cooler, like September. In all, an enjoyable experience!‬

‪I recently took a boat tour out to Sheffield Island by ferry. It was a beautiful boat ride out as well as a fantastic and relaxing time once on the island. A great way to spend the day enjoying the water and scenery.‬
