Boston Harbor IslandsThe Boston Harbor Islands are a part of history - and a part of the great outdoors.

So, if you are looking for an easy, exciting, half-day trip, the islands offer plenty of choices for individuals and families - walking, fishing, swimming, talking with a ranger, or just seeing the sights.

All are welcome: children and adults, individuals and families, locals and tourists, experienced hikers, and easygoing walkers. Getting here is fast, easy, and fun.

Ferry Rides
Most people arrive at the Boston Harbor Islands via a brief ferry ride from Long Wharf-North in Boston. The ferry system gets you to the islands (and home again) quickly and easily. Watch the Boston skyline fade into the background as you approach Georges or Spectacle Island.
