This week’s highlight was the 223 foot “Super Yacht Archimedes” passing through the KVK on her way to Southampton (UK). She is owned by the founder of the Hedge Fund “Renaissance Technologies”. The usual parade of tug boats and a RoRo topped off the week.
Fleet Week is in town this Memorial Day weekend. Ships located at the Staten Island Homeport Pier and Pier 92 Hudson River will be open to visitors thru Monday.
Until next week… John Skelson
Not sure what to surprise Dad with this Father’s Day? Something fun that Grandpa and the kids will enjoy? Go behind the scenes of the NY & NJ’s bustling, working waterfront on a narrated Hidden Harbor “Maritime Scavenger Hunt” Tour!
Kids (or Dad’s!) will get a workbook they’ll use to identify things seen in our working waterfront as we cruise to Port Newark/Elizabeth Marine terminal. See that tugboat? Check if off in your booklet! A lighthouse? A container vessel? The Statue of Liberty?
At the end of the tour a maritime expert on board will sign the booklet to “certify” you an “honorary Captain.” Sandwiches and beverages available for purchase onboard the NY Waterway vessel. Yes, there is a bathroom on the boat!
The 2-hour (11 a.m. – 1 p.m.) fully narrated boat tour departs at 11 a.m. sharp. Boarding begins at 10:30 a.m. from Pier 11 Wall Street in Manhattan located on South St. between Wall St. & Gouverneur Lane.
Tickets: $30; $25 seniors; $15 Children 12 years & under.
