No, evening programs will not be offered this summer.
I was planning a special event in the park this summer. Will those be allowed?
All proposed special events will need to be coordinated through the Special Use Permit process. Details of the event (including # of people attending, location, etc.) will be evaluated using COVID-19 guidance. Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
Will the Artist-in-Residence Program and Teen Artist Exploration take place this summer?

Transportation & Guide Services
Why is passenger ferry service suspended for 2020?
Each ferry, concession and government operations made decisions in the best interests of visitors and their operation. Due to COVID-19, social distancing restrictions and concerns about COVID-19 spreading to a remote island with limited emergency services, at this time no ferries felt transportation services could run safely and economically.
