Thompson Island is located just one mile from Downtown Boston; it is a private island within the Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area. In addition to beautiful skyline views, the 204-acre island offers nature trails, meadows, beaches and a choice of event sites. We are open annually from May 1st through October 31st, seven days a week from 10:00am to 10:00pm daily.
At Thompson Island, we can accommodate the ceremony, reception, overnight guests, rehearsal dinners, or even a full weekend celebration! Our facilities are available for day, evening, elegant or casual events. We will arrange a private 30-minute charter cruise to transport you and guests to another world. All food is freshly prepared on-site and served by our professional event staff. A full variety of bar packages are available. Our overnight accommodations include a stunning 5-bedroom Colonial that sleeps 10 and is ideal for pre and post wedding festivities.
Two additional benefits that set Thompson Island apart from other wedding sites: 1) Thompson Island books a limited number of weddings each year, thereby ensuring that this will be a truly memorable experience for your guests. 2) Thompson Island Outward Bound is a non-profit organization. Proceeds from events and weddings are used to support youth programs that help students develop self-reliance, responsibility, teamwork, confidence and compassion, as well as environmental and community stewardship.
We are available to schedule site visits year round Monday - Saturday between the hours of 9am-2pm. The visit including ferry transportation and walk through of the island should take around 90 minutes. Please contact us if you have any additional questions or would like to schedule a visit.
