The Thompson Island ferry dock is a short trip by taxi from Boston’s Logan International Airport. Tell the taxi driver to take you to Drydock Avenue in the Marine Industrial Park in South Boston. After you have turned onto Drydock Avenue, take the very first right and the dock will be one short block ahead of you. Rides from the airport can also be arranged in advance through the Folk Arts Center office, 781-438-4387.
The office can also help if you are flying in on Saturday, Aug. 12 and need a place to stay overnight.
