Boston Light Tour - Private Boaters
Private Boaters Come Climb Boston Light.
Private boaters are invited to tie up at Little Brewster and join a National Park Service Ranger, for one of the most enjoyable tours that the Boston Harbor Islands National Park area has to offer! During this unforgettable adventure tour of Boston Light, you'll step directly from your own boat into the past. Historic Little Brewster Island is located in the outer reaches of Boston Harbor providing unique views of the city and the surrounding waterways.
Established in 1716, the Boston Light is the first and oldest lighthouse station in the country. During the American Revolution, Boston Light was damaged by attacks of patriot militia, and later destroyed by British troops as they left Boston Harbor. The current tower was built in 1783 and is the last light station in the country to be staffed by a US Coast Guard light keeper.
During your ranger-guided adventure to Little Brewster Island, you'll enjoy:
* A tour of Little Brewster Island, where you'll meet the US Coast Guard light keeper, view the light station structures like the cistern and oil house
* Climb the 76 steps to the top of the tower for a close up look at Boston Light's Fresnel lens
Please Note: Kids must be at least 8 years of age and 50" tall to be able to climb the lighthouse.
All visitors must wear comfortable shoes or sneakers (no flip flops, no unsecured/open heels)
