The boats depart hourly from Hingham and Boston, beginning at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., respectively. On Saturdays, there are two additional round trips at night with the last boat departing Boston at 11:15 p.m., and arriving in Hingham at midnight. A one-way fare between Hingham or Hull and Long Wharf is $8.50. The fare for Logan service is $17, but only $8.50 for those with a valid monthly Commuter Boat pass.

“We are very pleased that summer travelers have chosen this convenient and affordable way to get in and out of Boston or visit Georges Island,” said General Manager Scott. “More and more people are avoiding the hassle of driving and parking, and enjoying a stress-free boat ride into the city.”
