One of the largest islands in Boston Harbor, Peddocks Island offers historic structures, hiking trails, and unique geologic structures. Cottages located near the mooring field serve as private residences during the summer months. We ask that all transients be mindful of the residents and their privacy. The Boston Harbor Islands State Park has a strict carry in/carry out trash policy.

Can't beat the views. Solid moorings, well-placed. Support the harbor! Wish I could add a photo to this!

the moorings were almost too far off shore to swim, and there are no dinghys or docks. other than that, awesome.

The mooring balls are located quite far from the dock. Likely fine if you have your own dingy with motor. We relied on the island’s first dingy and chose to anchor instead of using the mooring.

Mooring field quieted down when the sun sank. Wind and current made for a somewhat bumpy night but overall great. Pendent was clean and beefy.

Bit rough over there . People with boats coming in and leaving are driving to fast causing all the boats to bounce bad. Don’t know if I’ll go back 2 time it’s happened .

One of the maps on Dockwa indicated moorings on south side near ferry dock, Wrong! Picked one of those moorings on south that would hold A barge And a tug. No one answered radio so called number. Nice gentleman directed us to north side where numerous recreational boat sized moorings - to 40’ were available in 25’ - 30’ of water. Lots and lots of wakes, lots of jets overhead. During night wind died and mooring ball came knock, knock, knocking against the hull, straightened that out and nice rest the remainder of the night. Was asked to remove dog when visiting fort, National Park rules. Suggested they post that on website. Interesting Island to visit & great they allow camping and have water available. Cost is minimal for an urban mooring, not crowded, nice place to explore... I would recommend for day trip but it was a bit loud -jets- for my nights rest.
