This is a very nice nature preserve with well maintained trails. There are a number of activities for young children. It is worth a visit just for the nice walk. It was hot so we didn't see much wildlife.

Had a very fun guided kayaking tour with some friends and had a wonderful time. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and taught a lot about the wildlife around. This would be good to visit again!! Thank you Ally.

Located right off Edgartown-Vineyard Have Rd, Felix Neck has a number of great nature walks with scenic views of ponds, marshes, and beaches. Plenty of well-marked, well-maintained trails with a variety of views and lengths. Mostly flat trails, suitable for jogging strollers.

Hiking through the Felix Neck Sanctuary was one of the most memorable mornings of our vacation. The trails are wide and rolling - no steep hikes here. Depending on what trails you hike, you'll go through forest, beaches and a salt marsh. Try to walk them all if you can.. We saw swans and their cygnets on the pond, beautiful... More

Rent a Kayak or canoe and you can spend hours exploring the beautiful (and huge) tidal pond. Its a great way to spend a day while spending almost no money (a rarity on the Vinyard)! Just a really beautiful place.

This was a first for me..guide was excellent and taught me a lot about the area. A bit cloudy that night so moon was hazy, but sunset gorgeous and a serene time on the water.

We are a family of five with a 5, 4, and 2-year-old. We took a week-long vacation to The Cape, and spent a day at The Vineyard. I had done some advance research and found the Seashore Discovery program at Felix Neck - it looked like a great deal for the kids. I am so glad that we went. After... More

The Mass Audubon outpost on the island offers great activities to keep children busy while learning about nature. Varied setting of pond, marsh, woods all teeming with wildlife of various sorts. A good place for a walk, too.
