Go Boating or Sea Kayaking

Boaters and kayakers are encouraged to visit the Boston Harbor Islands national park area, which includes plenty of protected water, interesting coastline, and coves to explore.

Whether arriving by motorboat, sailboat, or kayak, everyone’s invited to come ashore to see all that the islands have to offer. Permits are required for on-island camping. Docks, moorings, and the marina on Spectacle Island are open seasonally. For further details http://bostonharborislands.org/go-boating
