Our Island Pursuit Stores
We love being out on the water, close to the surf, and under the sun. That’s why we founded our Island Pursuit stores in historic resort towns up and down the East Coast.
Life On the Shore
Our founder, Michael Valentino, opened the first Island Pursuit in 1983 as a complement to his ski-focused store, Northern Pursuit. Establishing the first Island Pursuit on Martha’s Vineyard, Michael sought his dream of an endless summer, eventually leading him to iconic locations along the coast in Florida, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts.
Today, Island Pursuit features timeless, nautical-inspired looks for men and women from coast to coast. No matter where life takes you, your own island pursuit is always within reach, where you feel most at peace, doing what you love.
Whether you’re shopping with us online or in-store, Island Pursuit is all about those classics, timeless wardrobe staples that take you from one season to the next. We feature endlessly wearable clothing, shoes, and accessories made for a life out on the water.
