The history of this trip is suuuper interesting.
An early rumor about the island was that William Kidd buried a treasure there.
In the 19th century, the island was a working farm with a farmhouse, barn, and livestock.
The business eventually turned into a whisky distillery, which the federal government raided in 1870.
In the 1960s, The United Illuminating Company planned to build a nuclear power plant on Cockenoe.
Due to concerned local residents and the threat of eminent domain, Westport bought the island for $200,000 in 1967.*
And today, we're gonna visit it.
This will be a leisurely kinda day.
Kayak, paddle, flotation devices and instruction are included.
