How to Visit the Isles of Shoals

Isles of Shoals
GUIDE TO BIG CHANGES IN 2006

Last year began  a new era for Star Island and the Isles of Shoals. The regular daily summer ferry no longer runs from Portsmouth to Star Island. Visitors to the Oceanic Hotel will have their own ferry as will students at the Shoals Marine Lab on Appledore. This guide is for them and for everyone who wants to see or visit the rocky historic Isles of Shoals. Rye Harbor has become the new center of activity.

 

HOW TO SEE & VISIT THE SHOALS
Half are in NH, half in Maine
