Welcome to the Home Base Adventure Series

Veteran's Day Harbor Islands Cruise
Date: 11/10/2018 - 10:45 AM - 4:00 PM

Climb aboard a ferry to Georges Island with Home Base! Veterans, Service Members, and their Families are invited to embark on a FREE Veterans Day journey to one of Boston's Harbor Islands on Saturday, November 10th. The ferry departs from Long Wharf at 11:15 a.m. and arrives at Georges Island at 11:55 p.m. Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a wreath laying ceremony followed by tours of Fort Warren, a short film screening, children's games, and a chance for self-guided island exploration. The day ends back at Long Wharf where guests will disembark the ferry at 3:45 p.m. We hope to see you there!

 The day long event will depart from 66 Long Wharf, Boston, MA 02110 (near Christopher Columbus Park).  We ask that all Adventure Series participants arrive by 10:45AM for check in. The ferry departs promptly at 11:00AM and will return by 3:15pm.

Thank you for supporting the Home Base Program and for being a part of the Adventure Series!

One of the reasons we host the Adventure Series is to help Veterans and Military families connect with each other, learn more about the services provided by Home Base and to offer fun outings for Service Members, Veterans and their families. The Home Base Outreach Team works tirelessley with our partners and potential partners in order to keep these events free of charge and try to reduce any barriers to attending.


We ask that if you have registered for an event and cannot attend that you please let the event coordinator know at least 48 hours prior to the event.


Not showing up to an event affects the program in several ways. First, it takes a spot away from an individual or family hoping to participate in that event. Second, it can potentially hurt our relationship with the partnering agencies who offer these events free of charge. We appreciate your help on this matter and look forward to many fun Adventure Series!


Warm Regards,

Home Base Veteran Outreach Team
