Summer Boat Tour of Boston Harbor

"Gateway to America"

Sunday June 23, 2024 - 3:00 to 5:00 PM

You are cordially invited to spend a few hours on the water during the first weekend of summer touring Boston Harbor!. The Society, in collaboration with the Eire Society of Boston, and the support of the Government of Ireland, are hosting a two-hour chartered boat cruise on Sunday afternoon, June 23rd, leaving from the Cambridgeside Galleria lagoon in Cambridge, MA.

After entering inner Boston Harbor we will view the City from a totally different and beautiful perspective. On the return trip, we will pass by a number of sites where European emigrants entered the New World aboard ships, from the early 1800s through the mid-20th century. Dr. Catherine Shannon will provide a narration about the hardships endured by these travelers which, in many cases, did not end with their arrival in Boston.

See below for further details and registration information online.

Best regards,
