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.

Don't miss this unique place while on Martha's Vineyard. It is a wonderful place for a walk in the woods, observation of all sorts of birds and other wide life and a view of an exquisite butterfly garden filed with many flowers. The staff is well trained and totally dedicated to preservation of the environment. They are particularly good with... More

This Audubon preserve is well staffed and maintained. In this fairly small area there are many habitats and trails. One can kayak, and birdwatch.

You might not want to spend every day at the beach, and Felix Neck gives you a great alternative. Learn about the local wildlife in a beautiful surrounding and walk away feeling like a more aware and well-rounded person, and more fully connected to the the Vineyard. This place is a jewel.

Helpful staff in the information center. Great beach along the trail. A little tough to follow the map

run by great people. We went twice, a return after a dusk stroll around the place for a morning bird watch. It was a great way to get oriented and see a different part of the Vineyard experience. these people are quite thoughtful as they provided options in their shoppe for insect repellant that was quite economical, provided filed glasses...

I'm so glad we chose to pack insect repellant and ignore the mosquito warnings. August 22nd got us a perfect hike with wonderful views of ocean, marsh, barn owls on live cam, bayberries, unfamiliar wildflowers, osprey, and a picture-book butterfly garden. There is a boardwalk across "Turtle Pond". No turtles were out on our hike but there was a lovely... More
