Take a free trip to either the Georges or Spectacle Islands tomorrow, when the Boston Harbor Islands presents its "Free Ferry Day."

Ferries will depart Boston's Long Wharf North next to the Long Wharf Marriott Hotel every half hour beginning at 9 a.m. A return time will be assigned based on availability. The ferries will run from Boston until 6 p.m., and tickets will be given to only one of the two islands. Tickets, of course, are first-come, first-served and there are no advanced reservations. Parties are limited to five people.

Tickets will be distributed at the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion at the Rose Kennedy Greenway (between Quincy Market and Christopher Columbus Park). For more information, visit the Boston Harbor Islands web site. The forecast tomorrow calls for partly sunny skies and a high around 80 degrees.
