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.

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).
