    Parking Information:

    During the summer season, park ferries depart frequently from Long Wharf, Boston to Spectacle Island. We suggest arriving at the dock at least 30 minutes prior to departure to allow time for ticketing and boarding. Regular ferry fees apply.

    An interisland ferry connecting Georges and Spectacle Islands operates on Fridays-Sundays. Georges Island is accessible from four mainland piers.
