    Stop At: Boston Harbor Cruises, Boston, MA

    The Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park is the largest recreation area in metro Boston, with an ocean of things to see, do and discover. From yoga on the beach to hiking. Kayaking to camping. Summer jazz to Civil War era forts. There’s something for everyone—and it’s all just minutes away.  
    View some of Boston's best sights and landmarks from the water as you depart Long Wharf North and cruise through Boston Harbor en route to the Boston Harbor Islands for a day of fun. This round-trip ferry is your ticket to the islands with multiple departure times. 

    Stop At: Spectacle Island, Boston Harbor, Boston, MA

    True to its name, Spectacle Island is a wonder to behold. It’s one of the greenest of the Harbor Islands, home to wildflowers, sea grasses and a sandy beach for swimming. Come out for a day by the water, a picnic lunch or a hike to the summit of the area’s tallest hill.
