Great Brewster Island Expedition
Come join us on a guided tour! The boat we will travel in has no rest rooms, and will require moderate effort boarding at the dock in Boston and landing at the dock at Calf Island.
Great Brewster Island was named for Elder William Brewster, the first preacher and teacher for the Plymouth Colony. Thousands of years before the English settlers named the island, Native Americans used it as a summer residence and utilized its natural resources. In more resent times the island has been home to summer cottages for local families and for U.S. soldiers who manned an observation post during WW II. The military post included 90mm rapid-fire guns, searchlight stations, and a command post that aided in controlling the harbor's minefield. Great Brewster Island itself will include rocky beach and grass covered pathways, steep rocky paths featuring some un-stable stones occasionally.
Bring your own food and drink (& carry off!). The trip travels rain or shine with no refunds. Trip canceled ONLY by captains orders.
