The Friends of Beaubears Island are currently monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Our projected opening date will be June 17. In compliance with existing guidelines, and wishing the safety of both our staff and our guests, all of our programs will offered to one ‘bubble’ at a time. Multiple guides will be onsite to facilitate time staggered tours, should more than one ‘bubble’ arrive at one time. With that in mind, we strongly encourage you to book your experience in advance by paying online.
