About Great Captain's Island
Great Captain's Island is the largest of a group of three islands off the coast of Greenwich. The west side of the island features a peaceful beach and picnic area that can be accessed during the summer months via ferry from the Arch Street Dock in Greenwich. The island also has a natural area and managed conservation area. Visitors to the island will find the 19th- century Great Captain Island Lighthouse.
From May 1st to October 31st, visitors must have a beach/park pass. Lifeguards are on duty during the day from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day weekend.
Beaches are monitored by the Town of Greenwich starting in May or June through August each summer. Beaches may be closed if they fail to meet water quality standards or after heavy rainfall.
