Each summer, from mid-June through mid-September, a local company offers a five-hour boat cruise to Baker Island interpreted by an NPS park ranger. A short trip on a motorized launch is required to complete the journey, however. Since some visitors with mobility impairments may not be able to participate in the experience, the NPS commissioned this video by Will Greene, a local filmmaker.
