Wat je gaat doen

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: I am happy to announce that we will begin tours again on August 1st. We will incorporate social distancing practices into our hikes to ensure participant safety. All guests will be required to wear a face covering during the entirety of the experience. Group sizes will also be limited to 5 participants to comply with current CDC guidelines. I look forward to exploring the outdoors again with you in 2020!!

Experience Info:
We will meet at Long Wharf in downtown Boston to take the ferry out to Spectacle Island in the Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. You will learn about the history of the Boston Harbor Islands as we travel 30 minutes on the ferry. Once on Spectacle Island we will hike approximately 2 miles (4kilometers) up to the highest point on any of the islands for spectacular views of the harbor and downtown Boston. This is truly a unique trip that combines an opportunity for a nature hike and historical tour. Don't miss this experience of Boston that is often overlooked by many visitors!

Guests will be given snacks while on the island. After stopping for the views halfway through the hike we will head back to the ferry and proceed back to Long Wharf in downtown. This experience will take approximately 3 and a half hours. Round trip ferry tickets included in price!
Other things to note
Ferry ride is approximately 30 minutes to and from Spectacle Island. Please be prepared if you usually incur any sort of sea sickness by bringing adequate medicine.

I am a local New Englander with years of hiking experience. I've hiked in out in Patagonia, the Italian Alps, Western Canada and the Northwestern United States, climbing some of the tallest mountains on this planet! On top of that I have 3 years of industry guiding experience and am certified as a Wilderness First Responder. Despite not being known for outdoor tourism, Boston has some amazing outdoor spaces that I am super excited to show off! Come hiking with me and you will be totally amazed at the nature New England has to offer!

Really enjoyed the Boston Harbor Island experience with Drew, who is gifted at creating unique experiences for his guests. Drew is very personable so is able to build a sense of friendship and comrade among guests. He is also very knowledgeable about the history of Boston and takes time to study so that the details conveyed are accurate. The island that we originally planned to visit was unexpectedly closed down so we were redirected to George’s Island instead. Drew rolled along without skipping a beat and really made the best of the forced shift in plans. I will definitely check out Drew’s other Airbnb experiences as well!

初めてのアメリカ、英語もよくできない、という状況で、ツアーをなんとなく見ていたときに、彼のプログラムを見つけました。 先に、英語ができないために迷惑をかけることはないか、とメッセージを送ると 「基本的に自然を見てまわるツアーだから大丈夫ですよ」というような親切な回答をいただき、申込みを決めました。 当日、集合時間に間に合うかわからない旨を伝えると、「ギリギリでも船に間に合えば大丈夫!」と。到着した私をわざわざ走って迎えに来てくれたり、ツアー中も積極的に全員に話しかけながら、みんなに楽しんでほしい、との心遣いを感じました。 他の方からの質問にも丁寧に答えていらっしゃっていて、とても素晴らしい方だと思いました。 彼のおかげで、ツアーメンバーの他の方とも交流ができ、同じく1人で参加していた女性と夕食に行けたのは、彼のツアーの温かな雰囲気があったからだと思います。 訪れたSpectacle Islandの景色と、島から眺めるボストンの街は本当に美しかったです。 野生の七面鳥が見れたのも、本当に嬉しかったです! このツアーがなければ、ボストンにこんな島があるなんて知らずにいました。 I love your tour , Thank you Drew !

This excursion was unique and fun. Drew was very knowledgeable about the Harbor Islands and was a great guide. Nice way to spend an afternoon and get out of the city.

We had a wonderful time with Drew. The islands of Boston are charming, and he had an intimate knowledge of them and obviously enjoyed what he was doing. The informality of the tour added to a sense of ease and comfort, as if visiting an old friend and having them take you around. We would definitely recommend Drew's tour to anyone wishing to see the non-urban side of Boston.

Drew was great! The hike was easy & Drew was really knowledgeable about the area & the island. It’s an easy hike - a walk really - that was just the right length. The views of Boston are amazing from the island & the ferry. Will definitely engage with Drew next time we’re in Boston!!

Drew is a highly knowledgable and super friendly tour guide. My girlfriend and I are both from Boston, and were impressed that, (in the best way), Drew managed to make us feel like tourists in our own city. He was well prepared and even brought snacks. I’d highly recommend this for locals as well as those visiting Boston. Thanks Drew!
