We recently spent a week on the southern Cape Lookout shores of Portsmouth Island. The idea behind the trip was to document vacation on a beach with UTV support vehicles. The logistics were simple enough; book a ferry ride, tow our units and gear to the ferry, and enjoy our time on the island. The 2021 Yamaha RMAX2 1000, 2021 Can-Am Defender Limited, and 2021 Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Trail Boss enabled us to quickly reach cell service, avoid digging holes in the sand for bathroom usage, and pack in/out our gear efficiently. Furthermore, the smaller footprint of the side-by-sides made it easy to navigate the beaches and paths found on the island without disturbing the local wildlife. They take up less space on the ferry, meaning our entire group could transport over to the island at one time and we kept the budget lower by leaving the big trucks on the mainland in the ferry company’s overnight parking lot. Do yourself a favor and plan a trip out to Portsmouth Island.
