New Years Day Boat Trip to Thompson Island
Sponsored by Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands this annual boat trip is the best way to start the New Year! We shall visit Thompson Island with its meadows, forests, beaches and 40 acre salt marsh.
Pack a picnic, explore on your own or take a tour with an FBHI volunteer. There is no food sold on the boat or the island. There will be a building open for warmup space and a book and merchandise sales table. Park policy is no pets and no alcohol.
We will travel on MV Freedom which holds 300 people and is heated. The trip will depart at 12:00 p.m. sharp and return to the dock at 4:00p.m. Boarding begins at 11:30a.m.
MV Freedom departs from Rowes Wharf onboard Mass Bay Lines (behind the Boston Harbor Hotel). Tickets can be purchased on the day of the trip (cash, check and credit cards accepted).
The trip goes rain or shine. If the captain/boat company cancel the trip due to severe weather conditions Brown Paper Tickets will issue a refund. Park policy is no pets and no alcohol.
