The Fox Island Historical Society reinstituted our annual Boat Cruise Around Fox Island aboard the Carlisle II in 2015 after a 10 year absence of this event. It was a huge success.

August 26, 2001
The Museum sponsored an annual Cruise Boat Trip around Fox Island. 

First Cruise at 1 O'clock, second cruise at 3 PM.  An approximately one hour trip around Fox Island in an historic old boat.  This boat is our favorite.  Old classic lines and with lots of room. The curator of the Fox Island Museum will narrate the trip as it circles the Island. 

Curator, George Miller was on board to point out the various historical points of Fox Island.  A great way to show all your friends Fox Island. Included in the price of the trip was an 11 X 14 frameable Map of Fox Island.  Cost of the trip was $12.50 for Adults and $7.50 for Children 12 and under. Toddlers free.
