Free Ferry Day


Event Image


Visit either Georges or Spectacle Islands on Tuesday, June 19th and enjoy a free boat ride to get there.

Ferries depart every half hour from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. A return time will be assigned based on departure time when tickets are allocated. Tickets are to one designated island, and if visitors depart Boston by 4:00 PM, there will be approximately two or two and a half hours to explore either Spectacle or Georges.

Due to high demand, all tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are available starting at 8:00 am on the day of the trip at Boston's Best Cruises Long Wharf-North Ferry Center.

No advance reservations. Parties are limited to five.
