Paddle over to enjoy the views

Via kayak or boat - or when the tide is super low you can walk - a visit to this harbor island is just plan fun!

You can set up tents on the campsites and have magnificent views of Boston as well... More

The boat will take you to this picturesque island where you can spend to day exploring, picnic or even camp out! It's a great family place.

An interesting place to visit, fish from and walk out on the sand spit at low tide. There are even prehistoric horseshoe crabs on the spit sometimes--don't touch them!!!!

They gave us a map... More

I toured the islands on the ferry last summer and it was great. This Memorial Day, we rented sea kayaks instead and setting off from Hingham, we paddled over to Slate Island, ate lunch (Slate is not too user-friendly).
