Free Access Programs

We want the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park and our many educational programs to be accessible to everyone.  If you need financial support in getting here, let us know!  Thanks to generous funders, we are able to provide free and discounted ferry tickets and free educational programs.  We look forward to seeing you on the islands!


Two-for-one passes to the Boston Harbor Islands are available at participating Boston-area libraries through the Museum Pass program.  Passes are free and available to anyone with a library card!  Passes are subject to availability and are valid on weekdays during the park’s regular season. Find participating libraries.


Thanks to our generous funders, every summer we are able to offer several Free Ferry Days as well as free ferry to chaperoned groups from over 130 non-profit community organizations.
