Boston Harbor and its wildlife remain a mystery to many people who have lived here for long stretches of their adult lives and these cruises are an excellent introduction to this outstanding resource.
Boston Harbor Islands is a national park area which is run by a partnership with the National Park Service, Massachusetts Dept. of conservation, recreation Boston Harbor Islands advisory Council, Massachusetts Port Authority, the trustees of reservations, United States Coast Guard and a number of other organizations.
|Fort Andrew on Paddocks Island|
The outermost island is known as the Graves and is bedrock outcropping. It contains the tallest of the three lighthouses in Boston Harbor, and continues as a navigation aid, although it is automated. It was est. in 1905 and was built out of granite.
We saw 34 different species of birds on our trip, along with harbor seals.
