Star Island Tour - Another Isles of Shoals Island  

Come aboard the Isle of Shoals Steamship Company boat for a visit to Star Island. On the way to Star, participants will hear narration about the Isles of Shoals and Portsmouth Harbor, arriving at the island about an hour after our departure. On the island, an OLLI "Old Shoaler" guide will take participants on a walking tour of the island, visiting the old Oceanic Hotel, which is now the center of a vibrant conference facility, conference "cottages," Caswell Cemetery, the stone village, the Art Barn and other special and historic Star locations. After the tour, participants will have time to do some exploring on their own, including visiting the gift shop, bookstore, and snack bar in the hotel. Participants will also enjoy relaxing on the lawn or using the rockers on the front porch.

Requirements: Ability to navigate the dock ramps, which may be steep depending on tides, and some uneven terrain. For those with walking difficulties, the tour can be adjusted to stay mostly on boardwalks and smooth paths. Please dress for the weather both land and sea.
