The second-largest of the Loyalty Islands, Mare Island features outstanding beaches and rich wildlife. Spend a day on this undeveloped island and explore its rocky coastline, providing the perfect environment for shy fish and sea turtles. Keep a sharp gaze over the lagoon and try to spot dolphins frolicking in the water. Head inland to dry off and explore some of the island's underground caves. Bring your own snorkeling gear, plenty of sunscreen, bug spray, and water. Use our Mare day trip tool to add Mare Island and other attractions to your Mare vacation plans.
