This place was a perfect stop for my 13, 12 & 6 yr old. They played mini golf and had some ice-cream and were content. I particularly liked the 80s music that they were playing ;- )

Every time we go on the island we visit. We are a family of three. We buy mini golf for our daughter only due to the pricing. She loves it here.

Mediocre Hershey's ice cream and decent mini golf are a draw since there are no other options on the island but there are reasons to stay away as well. Ice cream is $5 a cone for a small and mini golf is $9 a game....More

Having grown up on Shelter Island I appreciate the expense of running any business on the island but the Whale's Tale is outrageous. A few ice creams cost nearly $20 and the rounds of golf cost so much that it nearly takes the fun out...More
