*CANCELED* Autumn Adventure on Peddocks Island

Celebrate the season with a special fall exploration of Peddocks - the last chance to visit the Island until next year!

Autumn adventure has unfortuantely been cancelled due to weather.

Experience an unforgettable autumn day as you wander the trails of Peddocks Island in search of animal tracks and traces. Learn about the history and natural wonder of Peddocks on a guided tour, press your own cider, or take some time to explore on your own.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their binoculars, and cameras to enhance the day. Dress in layers for a day outdoors. Bring your own lunch, as there is no food service on Peddocks Island. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase aboard the ferry, but transactions will be cash only.

Your registration includes:

  • Roundtrip ferry ride to & from Peddocks Island from downtown Boston
  • Choice of guided tours exploring island history and wildlife
  • Hot beverages & snacks
  • Kid-friendly Junior Ranger activities
