Description

Not many rides combine beautiful sea views with industrial interest quite like this one! Deer Island is on a stunning peninsula in Boston Harbor, and home to the iconic Deer Island Wastewater Treatment Plant, a modern architectural marvel, and a symbol of environmental stewardship and innovation. We've shown the ride starting from close to Deer Island, but riding in from Winthrop or Revere is perfectly feasible.

Regardless of where your ride from, the views are you approach and then reach the island are stunning, with sailboats bobbing in distance and the mighty Atlantic Ocean stretching off on the horizon.

Deer Island is home to an array of wildlife, both on land and maritime.

You may be lucky enough to see herons, osprey or seals, but you're guaranteed to - at least - enjoy tranquil ocean vistas and an ambience unlike anywhere else.
