Cartwright Island

Cartwright Island

 

Cartwright Island is located at the southern tip of Gardiner's Island.  The island is located f approximately 1.5 miles south of Gardiners Island and 1.3 miles east of Acabonack Harbor.  The island is a barren sandbar inhabited only seagulls and some other small wildlife.  There are no marinas, marine services, restaurants or any buildings on the island at all.  The island is owned and run by the Gardiners and does not accept any trespassers.  The island is also surrounded with posted signs that inform you that this is private land.  

Some boats attempt to anchor for the day along the western side of the island.  On the west side of Cartwright island there is approximately 8-12 feet of water.  The area is not well protected from southwesterly winds, but on a calm day makes for a beautiful anchorage.
