Approach


The mooring fields are located on the north side of the Island as well as across the channel along the beach of Gallops Island. The DCR has provided a public dinghy that is located on the inner end of the large ferry float on the north side of the pier. Please return the dinghy to the float after using so other people may use it. Make sure there are no ferries coming when dropping people off at the float and be mindful of ferries coming into and out of the float when using the dinghy. If you have your own dinghy please pull it up on the beach to the north of the pier. The float on the inside of the south opening is for DCR and official use only.

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!

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.

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

No issue - only one there Hopefully you will be able to assign mooring number when the moorings start to be used.
