Appledore is one of the nine Isles of Shoals, located less than 10 miles from Portsmouth Harbor on the coast of New England. The island is owned by the Star Island Corporation, which leases the entire island to the universities of Cornell and New Hampshire for their summer marine biology programs. If you would like to experience this beautiful island and learn all about the valuable work conducted by the marine laboratory as well as the history of the island, you need to sign up for an Explore Appledore Island Walking Tour, presented during summer by the University of New Hampshire. Your day trip to Appledore will be led by a university docent who will bring the interesting history of Appledore to life.
