Save the Harbor is hosting a free cruise around Boston Harbor to see the different lighthouse stations on the evening of Tuesday, August 13! See these lighthouses up close from the water and spend the evening aboard the Bay State Cruise Company's flagship Provincetown II. Food and drinks are available for purchase (cash only), or personal food can be brought on board. This cruise will depart from the World Trade Center dock at 5:30PM and return at 7:30PM.
We will be joined by our Head of Narration, David Coffin, Keeper of the Light, Dr. Sally Snowman, and author of "Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse", Eric Jay Dolin!

The program for these cruises is based on environmental education and songs and stories of the sea that we developed with a team of historians, authors, storytellers and song leaders in order to share the diverse maritime history of Boston and America. The schedule includes trips to Spectacle Island and Boston Light. This spring, summer and fall, both youth and adults will have the chance to connect to the sea by learning about its history as well as the opportunities and challenges we face at present and our role in addressing them.
Save the Harbor has always believed that part of our mission to save the harbor is to share the harbor with the region's youth and families. This spectacular urban natural resource belongs to all of the region’s residents, but for a variety of reasons, not everyone has felt that connection to the water. That is why Save the Harbor first created its Haul Away Together curriculum, to demonstrate the teamwork needed to make a difference.
