Boston Harbor Cruises from UMass-Boston

I recently heard about some great boat tours of Boston Harbor and the islands that are run by the Marine Operations at UMass-Boston. There are tours of both Spectacle and Thompson Islands, although this late in the summer, the only island tour left is Spectacle on September 18. The cost is $5 for those with a UMass ID and $10 for others.

UMass-Boston also runs harbor cruises that leave from campus every Monday from June 2 through September 29. Monday cruises leave at noon and return at 1:15. As an added bonus, some of the cruises have professors from UMass-Boston as guest speakers. The price is pretty cheap, too. It's free with a UMass ID and $5 for others. Time's running short, as is the daylight, this summer, but check it out while you can. Click here for more information on the harbor tours run by UMass-Boston.
