A scenic tour of Hingham Bay can be had by putting in at the Hingham Harbor boat ramp and heading north past Button, Sarah, and Langlee Islands. After leaving the harbor continue north to Bumpkin Island. There are a few trails and some farmhouse and WW2 ruins to explore. After leaving Bumpkin head southwest toward Grape Island. Take a break on the nice beaches and explore the many trails that cover the island. Head east south of Slate Island and head around Crow Point back into the Harbor. Continue South back to the put it.
The put in at Hingham harbor is muddy at low tide and is best avoided in the hour before and after low tide. There can be quite a bit of boat traffic in the harbor and the channel crossings heading to Bumpkin and Grape require caution. The bay can get a bit choppy outside of the harbor so you should be comfortable with boat control and have solid self rescue skills before venturing out.
Hingham harbor is located on Rt. 3A in Hingham .2 miles north of the rotary.
