We are all about the dogs. Very dog friendly on boat and on Island. Though signs on Island say leash law in effect it does not apply to the "local 4 legged friends" no incidents just a word of caution.

We took the Balmy days ferry over to Monhegan Island, the employees were pleasant and efficient and the ferry itself was clean and well cared for. The day was perfect and we were glad we brought our camera. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend.
