Dock Jumping On Monhegan Island

Everybody into the pool! There's a great tradition on Monhegan. When a family member or friend departs the island, the rest of the clan heads down to the dock to see him or her off. A simple kiss or casual wave won't do. You need to don your bathing suit, perch on the dock edge and, once the ferry clears, throw yourself in. An emotional goodbye of diving madness.

Lining up.

Sizing up the distance to the water. The ferry is clear, time to leap!

Like bison over a cliff, they keep going.

Hitting the water.

A happy diver.
