About the Highland Street Foundation:
Since 1989, the Highland Street Foundation has worked to enrich the lives of children and families in Massachusetts by donating more than $133 million to worthy non-profit organizations. From its support of the TADpole playground in Boston Common, to providing tickets to local sporting events to local non-profits, to building capacity and providing technical assistance of hundreds of nonprofit organizations, the foundation is dedicated expanding opportunities families in Massachusetts and beyond.
This is a free ferry ride to either (or both) of the two most popular Boston Harbor Islands – Georges Island (with historic Fort Warren and ranger-guided tours) and Spectacle Island (with a life-guard supervised beach and 5 miles of hiking trails).
Free tickets for the Harbor Islands Express Ferry will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis at Long Wharf-North, 66 Long Wharf, in downtown Boston (near the Aquarium subway station). The ticket window will open at 8:00 a.m. The ferry leaves every 30 minutes starting at 8:30 am, with a 3 hour window to return. Each adult in line may pick up a maximum of 4 tickets. (There will be no special arrangements for groups of more than 4 to be on the same ferry). Tickets will be handed out for the earliest ferry, then the next, and so on, until all ferry seats for the day are distributed – last year, all tickets were distributed by 10:30 am.
