  1. Can you take kayaks on the boat from Point Lookout? Also can you stay on Smith Island and return on the ferry next day?

    1. No there is no transportation for Kayaks. Most Overnight accommodations have Kayaks for their guest to use. The ferry from Point Lookout, MD will resume in the spring of 2019. There is a new B&B that will be available also in the spring of 2019. Check back at this website for updates and information
