Weekend service begins Memorial Day weekend and will continue through the Labor Day weekend.

The boats depart hourly from Hingham and Boston, beginning at 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., respectively. On Saturdays, there will be two additional round trips at night with the last boat departing Boston at 11:15 p.m., and arriving in Hingham at midnight.
