Group Permit Application

If you are planning a day visit with a group of 25 or more, a permit is required by Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR). There is no cost for this permit.

Non-profit groups may also apply for free ferry tickets. There is a limited supply available and free tickets are typically allocated very early in the season. If the application for free trips is closed, please check back in late winter or early spring to apply for the following summer season. 

Please apply at least 2 weeks before the desired date of travel, and allow 7 business days for a response to your application.
