The journey begins on Thompson Island in the Boston Harbor Islands national park area, where you will be greeted by 240 acres of sandy beaches, salt marshes, rolling hills, and woodlands. Your instructors will guide you on an unforgettable 12-day adventure, paddling the ocean, greeting seals and other marine life, climbing on Thompson Island's high ropes courses and making wonderful new friends along the way.
