This remarkable adventure is only available for a very limited number of guests. Penikese Island is the most remote island on the Elizabeth Island chain. Charted by Bartholemew Gosnold, it is the birthplace of the Marine Biological Institute, the former site of a leper colony and former home of the Penikese Island School for Boys, this island has a rich history just waiting to be revealed.
