Logistics – Boston

Paperwork:  Please be prepared to show your MMC and TWIC card.

Location: We operate in partnership with Boston Line Service operating out of CruisePort Boston located at 1 Black Falcon Ave, Boston, MA 02210.

Time: We will meet at 0830 on the day of the class. We typically finish up around 1600 but may have to go longer depending on how the day goes. If travelling by air, we strongly recommend planning to arrive to the area at least the evening before the class and booking travel for no earlier than 1930 on the day of the class.

Attire: Please dress comfortably for the weather and to be on a workboat. We will have deckhands available but you may be asked to handle lines. You are not required to bring your own PPE.

Lodging:  We recommend staying at the Mariner House in Boston as they are an affordable hotel for credentialed mariners only. The Mariner house is located at 11 N Square, Boston, MA 02113 and their phone number is (617) 227-3979. Please note that reservations may only be made over the phone.

Airports: We recommend flying into Boston’s Logan Airport (BOS).  From the airport, consider a taxi or Uber/Lyft to get from the airport to the hotel. Public Transportation options include a subway blue line to the Aquarium stop or ferry to Long Wharf. Both the subway and ferry leave you with a short walk to the dock.

Train: Amtrak’s Boston South Station (BOS) is also an option. The Mariner House is roughly 1 mile leaving a 20 minute walk or a short taxi or Uber ride.

Price: The program costs $2000. We ask for a $300 deposit to hold your spot in the class. The balance of $1700 can be paid on our website at any time or at the class with cash or check.
