Paddle straight out and to shore line to your left. Hope Island is between Sqawkson Island and Steamboat Island. Nice hour crossing from Boston Harbor. Hope Island is a state park and you can camp overnight if you wish they have permanent port-a-potties on the island and an old historic house and farm with info signs. The house is now a care takers house which is manned year around. To walk the Island is about 45 min. Nice day trip with minimal effort.
