<center><b> *** IMPORTANT READING FOR CLAVERS ***</b></center>
In order to reserve the Monomoy Shuttle, we must consider the following information and possibly make a commitment. Here is an explanation of the shuttle situation:
The shuttle has a simple policy... call ahead, and go to either south beach/north monomoy for $10/$15 per rider. <b>UNLESS</b> you want to go out early or go to a special destination, in which case you must pay in advance.
<b>IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN AN EARLY SHUTTLE...</b>
The boat must be chartered for $120 dollars, with up to thirteen riders. This fixed price is split between the number of riders that show up, so we will need a count per early departure. The negotiated departure time is 6am, both days.
<b>IF YOU ARE TAKING THE 8am NORMAL DEPARTURE, OR A LATER TIME...</b>
Just call them and make arrangements directly with them. (508) 945-5450
There is no need / benefit for me to get involved with normal shuttle times.
<b> GENERAL DETAILS </b>
Early shuttles go with Keith Lincoln on Rip Ryder. Outermost Harbor is another option, but they do not service early departures. If you are not leaving early, it does not matter which service you use. You will make your own arangements if you are not taking an early shuttle.
If you are taking the early shuttle, you must commit that you will pay for your share of the ride even if you decide not to take it. Rip Ryder will be the only choice in this case.
Rip Ryder leaves from Monomoy Wildlife Refuge HQ, which is just down the road from Chatham light. To get there, take rte 28 to Chatham center. There will be a grocery store on the right, a gas station on the left and you will see the stores straight ahead. Drive completely thru Chatham Center and turn right at the stop sign at the end of the road. You'll be at Chatham light in a short distance along this road. Continue past the lighthouse and onto Morris Island Rd. The refuge is past the causeway on the left. Look on the lower right corner of the map... see where Morris Island splits above Quitnesset? That's the parking spot. Cars need to be parked down on the causeway, but you can drive up to drop off your stuff if it helps.
