The first offshore wind farm in the United States is right in our backyard. The 30-megawatt, Block Island Wind Farm will go online in 2016. This 5-turbine wind farm will not only supply most of Block Island’s electricity using clean energy produced by the wind, but it will also help to improve air quality for Southern New England, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which are a major contributor to climate change.
Bring your party of up to six passengers for a 3-hour trip to see the impressive sights and hear the captivating whooshing sounds of the massive wind turbines up close. Included in the trip (weather permitting) is a perimeter tour of Block Island. Bring your camera for spectacular offshore views of the North Lighthouse, the cliffs of Clay Head, South East Light, Old Harbor, and Mohegan Bluffs.
Private whale watch and bird tours are also available. Call for details!
