Where is Fishers Island?

Tucked perfectly between New York and Boston at the entrance to Long Island Sound, Fishers Island is considerably easier to access than Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, yet it retains a charm that none of them posses.

Ride the Acela or take a two hour drive from either New York or Boston, and hop on the ferry in New London, Connecticut. The relaxing 45 minute ride serves as your segue from the busy city life to the safety, privacy and best aspects of island living.
