Georges Island is the location of a Civil War-era fort known as Fort Warren. Boaters can enjoy exploring its stunning granite archways. The island hosts plenty of locations for scenic views, relaxing picnics, and refreshing walks. You can find information on Georges Islands attractions at www.mass.gov and www.bostonharbornow.org. The island is open to the public until 6PM and has a strict carry in/carry out trash policy. Enjoy the Boston Harbor Islands!
Georges is a great site for a picnic and short hike. The other reviewers are right that the mooring field is exposed. Might make for a poor night's sleep, but a very enjoyable daytrip. Kudos to the NPS for upgrading their mooring options this year. Or maybe kudos to the Mass State Parks people, since the islands are jointly run I think. Don't know who improved the mooring fields, but it is a great improvement. Not sure I'm keen on the plans for a luxury hotel on Peddocks on the other hand.
Gorgeous spot nestled among the Harbor Islands. Great view of the city of Boston, particularly cool after dark. Not the smoothest mooring field due to traffic and currents, but well worth a stay. I hope these moorings will continue to be maintained.
Ft. Warren ok, but no upkeep due to lack of funding. Lots of Canadien Geese fecal matter all over the place. If you boat there be advised no dingy dock. You have to beach your dingy. Mine was filled with water and sand upon my return. UGH!
Pulled up a mooring to have lunch - delightful, easy to access
The moorings are great, a real plus for enjoying the harbor. However while we had a reservation, they were all taken when we arrived, and we had to wait till a boat left. Seems to me that it's actually a free for all, regardless of reservations.
The island is great. I took a tour with a period actor Doctor Mcgill I thin it was who was a prisoner of war n th4eIsland. It was spectacular. Really well done. the food in the restaurant is a joke though. You really have to get a real restaurant in there.
Terrific that the DCR has added so many moorings at the Boston harbor islands. A bit rocky from ferry going in and out of George’s Island.
The mooring balls are a great addition to the George’s Island area. The person monitoring the area was very friendly. THANKS
Very convenient. Moorings all in good condition.
Really nice to be able to visit the islands and be so close to Boston at the same time. Love the history at George's Island.
Great to see the additional moorings , worked great for us.
It was unclear which mooring field was being managed by Dockwa / Georges island. No one answered the VHF radio call )Ch16 or CH69) or cell phone number
