BOSTON - On Tuesday, June 19, Boston Harbor Island Alliance, through the generosity of The Lawrence & Lillian Solomon Fund, will offer a Free Ferry Day for visitors to the Boston Harbor Islands national park area.
Visitors will be able to enjoy a complimentary round-trip to either Spectacle or Georges Islands to escape the city for a fun outdoor excursion.
The Lawrence & Lillian Solomon Fund continues to sponsor this Free Ferry Day as part of its commitment to supporting preservation and access to public land. The day is also supported by Boston’s Best Cruises, the park’s operator of public ferries.
Due to high demand, all tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are available starting at 8 a.m. on June 19 at the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion –the Rose Kennedy Greenway. No advance reservations. Parties are limited to five. Valid only on Tuesday, June 19. A return time will be assigned when tickets are allocated.
Children’s musician, Vanessa Trein of the Jumping Monkeys, and live birds from the Mass Audubon Trailside Museum will also be at the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion on the Rose Kennedy Greenway from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Boats depart from the Boston’s Long Wharf North, next to the Long Wharf Marriott Hotel, adjacent to Christopher Columbus Park, a short walk from the nearest MBTA station – the Aquarium T stop in downtown Boston.
