Two water taxis -- the 23 passenger Lewis H. Latimer and the 18 passenger Gustave Whitehead -- will run frequently from the fishing pier on Seaview Avenue to the T-Pier on Pleasure Beach.
The peninsula will be accessible via free water taxi, which will pick beach goers up at the fishing pier located on Seaview Avenue near its intersection with Central Avenue.
Upon arrival on the T-Pier on Pleasure Beach, it’s about a half-mile walk along a boardwalk to the beach area. While en route, visitors will pass an info depot where beach goers will be able to ask questions and gain more information about the park.
During summer months, you can get a guided tour of the beach with WildLife Guards who offer walks and outreach events. The schedule can be found here: http://ctwaterbirds.blogspot.com/2015/07/visit-pleasure-beach.html
After passing the info depot, visitors will come upon a pavilion and relaxation area that includes several bathrooms, showers, picnic tables and a limited concession stand. And, after walking through the pavilion area, beach goers will walk down a boardwalk and onto the beautiful beach.
Please keep in mind that it is a recreational park containing several delicate species and plants, so beach goers should be respectful and careful.
