Join fellow Net Impacters, families and friends on an exciting getaway and afternoon full of fun. Explore George’s Island, part of the Boston Harbor Islands, a stone’s throw from the Boston Harbor. Join us for a nature hike, explore the island’s fort, play games, or just kick back and socialize – there’s an option for everyone. Truly one of the best kept secrets in Boston. Get there by public transportation, but feel a world away!
The Net Impact group will be assembling at the Boston Harbor Islands ferry ticket kiosk on Long Wharf (adjacent to the Marriott hotel & Christopher Columbus Park) at 10:30am. The ferry leaves promptly at 11am – don’t arrive late or you’ll have to wait for the next boat! You will be responsible for purchasing ferry tickets for each member of your group ($14 roundtrip for adults; $8 for kids aged 3-11). The ferry ride to George’s Island is 20 minutes in length; ferries depart the Island back to Boston every hour on the half hour, with the last ferry departing back to Boston at 4:30pm.
If choosing public transportation, the closest T stops to Long Wharf are the Aquarium stop on the Blue line (very close), State Street on the Orange line (5-6 blocks), or Government Center on the Green line (6-7 blocks). For those that are driving, you can park at the Post Office Square Parking Garage for a flat rate of $9 for the entire day.
