I love to take the boats from vippetangen, right next to Akershus Castle in Oslo. The ferry takes about 15 minutes i think. there are also many other islands you can visit.
Bring your swim pants, some piknik food and sun screen and enjoy life. Boats can be crowded on sunny days but it is well worth it. If you have a fishing rod you could probably catch some mackerel as well:-)
