On Fire Island

There are no paved public roads within Fire Island National Seashore, so upon arrival, you may explore the park on foot or transfer to other park sites via water taxis. Fire Island Water Taxi is authorized to provide lateral ferry service between the Fire Island communities and other destination points on Fire Island.

Bicycles, scooters, rollerskates, and rollerblades are prohibited on all park boardwalks. Wheelchairs, strollers and wagons are permitted, but all trails and facilities are not fully accessible at this time.
