W.A.V.E.S. is a unique organization that allows small groups of physically and mentally challenged people to experience a day of fishing and sightseeing on the Great South Bay, which is located on Long Island's South Shore from May to November. It is equipped to handle wheelchairs, walkers, canes and any other special needs of our guests, including the blind. We have worked successfully with the most challenged populations of children and adults who suffer from autism, MS, MD, spinal chord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, Downs Syndrome and all disabled veterans. We provide the boating, fishing, bait and tackle all for free. Just bring your lunch! For the sightseers we have a pleasant cruise around Captree State Park to the historical Fire Island Lighthouse.
W.A.V.E.S.

8 year old Brady Gil and his little brother Travis from Massapequa raised $261 this past summer and donated it to W.A.V.E.S. last week. What a wonderful act of selfless giving and paying it forward!
