Online registration for this event is now closed. We will be accepting reservations by phone through Friday at 5pm. Because there is a catered lunch component of this event, we will not be able to accomodate reservations after 5pm Friday 9/13. 

 

Choate Island is the crown jewel of the Crane Wildlife Refuge and is only accessible by boat.

Enjoy one stunning view after the next on this rare chance to explore the cultural and natural history of the island. Walk a 1.5 mile network of carriageways and footpaths that lead past The Proctor Barn, White Cottage, and Choate House, all the way to the top of the island where the Crane Family burial ground looks out over Plum Island Sound.

This tour includes a complimentary boat ride from the Crane Estate boat dock to Choate Island and back as well as a packed picnic lunch. 

Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that thunder and lightning will be present, we may cancel a trip up to one hour in advance. If the forecast is for steady and heavy rain all day, we may decide to cancel by 3pm on the day before the event. If either of these happens, all registrants will be notified by email and/or phone with as much notice as possible.
