Join us on three free trips to Georges Island this week!

As the final days of summer breeze by, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay invites you to celebrate the final week of August with a free trip to Georges Island on Tuesday (8/29), Wednesday (8/30), and Thursday (8/31).

These free trips are open to everyone- individuals, families, groups of friends, or chaperoned youth and teen groups! All you have to do is register for the date of your choice via this reservation form. If you'd like to reserve space on multiple trips, please submit one form for each trip trip.
At Georges Island, you can fish with Save the Harbor's staff, enjoy a story or song from Harbor Historian David Coffin, or just relax! 

Maybe you can catch some fish or crabs at the island!
On Tuesday (8/29) and Wednesday (8/30), please arrive at 9:45 AM at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion at 290 Northern Ave. to begin  your adventure with an interactive presentation about the harbor and the islands. We will then escort the group to the to the World Trade Center to board Bay State Cruise Company's Provincetown II for a 10:30 departure.

Thursday (8/31), please arrive at the World Trade Center at Bay State Cruise Company's Dock by 9:45 AM for immediate boarding!

A few tips for the trip:
  • Snacks are available for purchase at the Georges Island Cafe. You are also welcome to bring your own bagged lunch.
  • All Islands in the Park enforce a carry-on, carry-off policy. Please bring a bag for your trash so that you can dispose of it back at the boat!
  • Save the Harbor staff will also be running activities including fishing, ball sports, and wrack line walks.
  • We welcome everyone, however these trips are geared towards ages 3 and up, so please plan accordingly. 
  • Strollers are allowed, but may be unwieldy on the boat and gangway
    The island is full of adventure: climb, run, crawl, play, or relax!
You can learn more about the program and find a schedule of trip dates and destinations, on the All Access Boston Harbor's section on our website.

See you on the Harbor!
