Jumping into Summer!
Jaws Bridge, also known to Islanders as "Big Bridge" and the "American Legion Memorial Bridge" is a favorite spot for kids to jump into the water in spite of the "no jumping" signs. Made famous from a scene in Jaws, the movie, you'll see people of all ages jumping off it.
West Chop lighthouse, one of 5 Martha's Vineyard lighthouses. West Chop located in Tisbury, is a historic residential area, and used to have its own zip code. It's home to the private West Chop country club, and Mink Meadows golf Club. The views of Vineyard Sound are breathtaking.
La vie en Rose! The Martha’s Vineyard Camp Meeting Association campground in Oak Bluffs lives up to those “Life in Pink” or “Life in Rosy Hues” lyrics.
There are several Pink houses to see, and this lovely house is named “La Vie en Rose.” Our tours will take you through this colorful and picturesque area of Oak Bluffs where you can see Carpenter Gothic architecture at its finest.

We couldn't say it any better than Joe @cj_journeys who took this photo & video.
"You don’t have to be a seafaring person to see the beauty and hope lighthouses have to offer." ☀️
We are so grateful to have the Gay Head Lighthouse and spectacular red clay cliffs as well as 4 other lighthouses on this magical Island to uplift our spirits.
Our Island tours will show you 4 of them, alas we don't go to Chappaquiddick where the Cape Poge lighthouse is located. Unfortunately, the traffic lines to and from Chappy are just too long.

We love this insight into some Island history – shared with us by @mvmuseum
Built in 1876 and moved to Oak Bluffs in 1884, the Flying Horses was (as shown in this picture) originally located on North Bluff behind the massive roller-skating rink that stood where the Santander Bank is now. When the carousel’s five-year lease on the site expired, William H. Davis dismantled and moved it to its current location at the foot of Circuit Avenue, adding its now-familiar (if fanciful) name in the process.
We look forward to seeing Flying Horses back in action starting this weekend!
Warm weather has arrived. We think this might just be one of the best and busiest summers on the island. Let us tour you around in our super comfortable air-conditioned vans (with a limited passenger capacity – not a huge bus) so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the views and not have to worry about traffic. ☀️

A Birdseye view of Oak Bluffs. ☀️ Steamship terminal in the distance with OB harbor to the left, the beautiful inkwell beach in the foreground, and Ocean Park semi-circle surrounded by Gingerbread houses.
This view of the Aquinnah cliffs with the Elizabeth Islands in the distance reminds us how lucky we are to be here. Share the Island experience with us. We'll show you around Martha's Vineyard in our 3 or 4 hr Island tours.
