Brothers Rudy and Donald Austin, both former ferry captains, offer boat tours to historic Portsmouth Island. Departing daily from Silver Lake Harbor at the dock shared by the Watermen's Museum, the Austins are excellent guides for local history as well. You can explore the historic village or beach or both. All trips are weather permitting. The Austins are also happy to work with special event requests such as school groups, weddings and group charters. Reservations are recommended, but you can call on short notice too. The trip minimum is four passengers.
