    Buck Island was established in 1969. The refuge consists of the entire 45-acre island. The Buck Island Light Station was erected in 1913.

    The trip was great with the small group. We saw lots of turtles, rays, and squid. Captain Steve was great!! I recommend this trip and Captain Steve to anyone, especially those wanting to avoid the large groups.

    We love children. Whether on SY Pisces of MV Aquarius, we have safety equipment for toddlers. Please note, we do not have an infant seat so they will need to sit on a lap.
