Took this shuttle to George's Island. The grandkids loved it so on the return trip we went to Boston first and then Quincy. They akso sell drinks and snacks. I would recommend it.

I have yet to use them without a major problem. The State needs to revoke its contract to run to the Harbor Islands and replace it with a company that knows what it's doing. On trip 1 last season, the boat left Boston a full five minutes before the scheduled departure time (despite being sold tickets at the booth and being told that we would make it), therefore missing connections to the inter-island shuttle. On trip 2, a return from Spectacle Island, all of the boats were so full that we had to wait over an hour for a return ferry, and at that it was cramped. Then recently, they asked what ferry we were returning on (never been asked that because the prior ferry operators always had enough capacity to handle the anticipated crowds), I picked the latest only to be told that it was sold out. The next prior available run was too early to be able to explore the other islands, as intended. I had to cancel the trip. Their boats are way too small to handle the crowds, they hare very poor at time keeping and are unresponsive to complaints when they are made. This is a very poorly run operation and really should not have its contract renewed next year.

We took the Harbor Express to Georges Island last summer. The trip was fantastic. The boat was clean and the crew friendly. My husband is visually impaired and the crew was very helpful.

Last summer we took the Harbor express out to Georges Island in Boston Harbor. The Harbor Express was so convenient and an inexpensive way to get into Boston. We all had such a great and comfortable trip to the island that we would definitely do it again this summer.
