Explore Boston Harbor: A Waterfront-wide Scavenger Hunt

Boston Harbor Islands National & State Park are pleased to present “Explore Boston Harbor: A Waterfront-Wide Scavenger Hunt”

Join us for “Explore Boston Harbor” scavenger hunts in 5 locations around the waterfront: Spectacle Island, Charlestown, Downtown Boston, East Boston, and South Boston (Georges Island is closed to the public for the remainder of the season)

Each hunt has been carefully crafted to reflect the unique history and culture of the area and includes multiple choice, short-answer, and open-ended questions, as well as photo submissions. You can play by yourself or as a team and experience the harbor in a completely new way.

To play, visit, select your hunt, and participate as much or as little as you’d like!

Collect a special edition prize on Spectacle through the end of the fall season!
