Reaching the southernmost point in Connecticut is not an easy task but if you’re up for an adventure this is one you won’t forget. Great Captain Island is located about one mile off the coast of Greenwich. It is the farthest south you can go in Connecticut and still be on land. Unless you own your own boat, the window of opportunity to reach this offshore gem is slim, the tides and the season have to be just right. But if you plan ahead, the journey to this unspoiled treasure is well worth it.

Have you ever visited Great Captain Island? If you like island hopping but can’t afford the airfare, this Connecticut gem is just a short ferry ride away.
