As NIPupper said, it's no dogs. The island is a bird sanctuary of some sort so they don't allow.

Depending if it's a trained working dog: guide dog, mobility assistance dog etc it shouldn't be a problem to bring it over to Rams Island. Have a chat with Michael, who runs the boat and explain your situation. He can be accommodating, there's a no camping policy during the bird nesting season from March to June but with a quick chat they'll be a camp planned for May. Hope you get there some time!

Thank you so much for the replies.  I think I would be better off with someplace we can drive to. I do miss being able to hike in but it just isn't on the cards anymore. Thinking of round lake near five mile town as it seems to have a fair amount of trees, but finding a farmer would be nice too. The dog is not an official assistance dog. He is basically trained as a family dog, alerts if I am going to be in trouble and would behave on a boat because he knows he hasn't much choice on a leash. He is water mad, you'd think he was a retriever, without a lead I wouldn't trust him not to jump, but I was thinking of a boat as in a ferry which the car would go on. We used to allow him around our parrot but the parrot really got nasty with him and we know if if ever decided to return the favour the parrot would be done for. Parrot has to stay home as he hates travel and has unclipped wings.

Hopefully I will figure out how to add posts here, I have been lurking for some time, reading all your posts and learning from them.
