If your visiting the Island and want to get away from the beaches the wildlife sanctuary is the place for you. It is easily accessible by public transportation. After wandering down a long trail you come across the barn/ center. The cost for non-members is $4 which is worth the donation. Inside you can learn about native island species. The... More

Enjoyed a beautiful kayak tour today around Felix Neck. Other than the occasional boom from the gun club down stream (why they have one in such a beautiful place I have no idea), this was a quiet trip with very few others. Nice birding with Egrets, plovers, osprey and other shore birds. Wonderful tributaries through the marsh land as well... More

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.

Thank Matthew C
