Winter Wildlife Cruise

Grab your camera and join National Park Rangers and local naturalists to observe animals who make their wintertime home in Boston Harbor!

Hop aboard a (heated) high speed ferry and discover how alive the harbor is in the winter months during this curated 3-hour cruise. Naturalists include representatives from the National Park Service and more!

Ferry features ample indoor seating and refreshments available for purchase.

Important weather note

This program will be held rain or shine, unless weather is inclement or severe enough to threaten visitor safety. In case of postponement, the Winter Wildlife cruise will take place on Saturday January 27, 2024, operating on the same schedule.

We encourage all visitors to watch the weather closely, plan ahead to come prepared for potentially rainy or windy conditions, and try to be available for both dates.
