The Boston Harbor Islands provide a wilderness paddling experience within the Boston metropolis and around one of the country’s most historical harbors. One of the best put-in spots is at Hull, where the waters are cleaner than other harbor spots, car vandals less likely, and the paddler-friendly Hull Lifesaving Museum nearby. The 50-square-mile Boston Harbor provides a veritable marine-history museum on and between thirty-four rocky islands that range in character from the truly inviting and lush to the genuinely desolate. From Civil War forts to World War II gun remnants, Indian archaeology sites to mansion ruins, old hospitals to former fashionable hotels, striking lighthouses to rural farmland, the sites make for a dynamic sea kayaking experience.
