Boston Harbor - Outer Islands

Boston Harbor - Outer Islands Professional Review and Guide

"There's never a dull moment kayaking Boston Harbor. Its fifty square miles include more than thirty islands hosting historic forts, lighthouses, and view-filled trails. Its waters offer up a variety of currents, refracting waves, and challenging wakes from the multitude of boats that daily churn its surface. Kayaking the scenic outer islands can test the skills of even the most-experienced paddlers. Yet there are great rewards. Paddlers enjoy intimate views of two very different lighthouses, one at the eerily desolate Graves, the second at cheery Little Brewster Island.

There are superb camping opportunities and panoramic views of the entire harbor and Boston skyline, as well as the full reach of Massachusetts Bay. For lovers of the city and its history, for boaters who enjoy watching (and dodging) other boats, and for those who enjoy a challenge, this dynamic paddle is custom made. Attractions: Boston Harbor Islands (Georges, the Brewsters, Green, Calf, and the Graves), historic lighthouses, views, picnicking, camping, fishing. Bring $10 per group for tour of Boston Light on Little Brewster."
