To get out to the islands, pick up the ferry from Long Wharf North. It takes 20 mins to get to Spectacle Island and 40 mins to get out to Georges Island. There are smaller connecting ferrys to the other islands including the four that you can camp on - Grape, Bumpkin, Peddocks, and Lovells Islands.

Check the ferry schedule on the read more link below.
