Join us for a Free Cruise to Georges Island October 14th!

On Saturday, October 14th, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay will host a free fall cruise to Georges Island! Come explore historic Fort Warren, and maybe encounter the fabled “Lady in Black” in the Dark Tunnel!

We will begin boarding the Provincetown II at Bay State Cruise Company's dock at the World Trade Center in the Seaport at 9:30 AM for a 10 AM departure. The boat will depart the island at 1:15 PM for a 2 PM arrival back at the World Trade Center.

To reserve your space on this free trip, fill out this Google Form! There is plenty of space on the trip, but you must RSVP to join us.

Please note that the snack bar on Georges Island will have closed for the season. You are welcome and encourages to bring a picnic lunch-- please remember that the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park has a "carry-on, carry-off" policy, so bring a bag for your trash to dispose of back on the boat.

While the Visitor’s Center on Georges Island will be closed for the season, the Provincetown II will remain at the dock with bathrooms available on board throughout the day.

Temperatures on the water and the islands are often cooler than in the city, especially during the fall season—dress warmly and bring layers!

This trip is for families, individuals, and chaperoned groups of youth and teens. Strollers are permitted but can be unwieldy on the boat stairways and gangways.

If you have any questions please contact Amy Gaylord via email or phone at 617-451-2860 x1008.
