Departing from Salem Willows Park pier, the 45-foot catamaran Endeavour heads out to the Misery Islands. These islands are maintained by The Trustees of Reservations. Customers can hike around Great Misery Island’s miles of trails, or they can stay onboard the boat and take a tour of the Salem Sound. Optional drop-off and pick-up on Misery Island for an additional $10 (or $5 for Trustees of Reservations members).
The commercial passenger boat known as the Endeavour doesn't just roam the waters of Salem Sound: it also has the rare permission to land on Misery Island. It's fitting, then, that it also has a second name: Sea Shuttle. At regular intervals, this flat, open-air boat ferries passengers between the Salem Willows Park pier and the lush Misery Islands. Managed by the Trustees of Reservation, the islands greet visitors with rugged, rocky shores, panoramic views of the ocean, and a verdant terrain of woods and meadows crossed with hiking trails. Though it functions primarily as a ferry, Sea Shuttle also explores local wildlife; its Sea Station educational programs focus on marine science.
