The Working Harbor Committee Hidden Harbor Tour® of Port Newark
Wednesday, 24 August, 2016 from 6pm to 8pm
You’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the 3rd largest port in the nation, where giant container ships dock and unload their goods, huge cranes moving shipping containers and tug and barge transports of fuel oil and chemicals to distribution hubs.
Our vessel will pass beneath the Bayonne Bridge where a massive infrastructure feat is in progress, giving you a unique and close up view of the roadway raising project.
Our expert narrators will wow you with tales of how the working harbor really works, and what all those ships and tugs do.
Learn about how floating dry docks work, the history of the Robbins Reef Lighthouse; tug boat yards, oil docks and more! Plus, you’ll be able to get an epic sunset selfie with Lady Liberty.
Wednesday, 24 August from 6pm to 8pm. Pier 11 Wall Street in Manhattan located on South St. between Wall St. & Gouveneur Lane. The 2-hour, fully narrated boat tour departs at 6 p.m. sharp. Boarding begins at 5:45 p.m. There is a snack bar on board.
See you on board!

Last Friday, the 10,000 TEU ship MOL Benefactor docked at Global Container Terminal in Bayonne, N.J. – becoming the largest containership the Port of New York/New Jersey has handled in its history. MOL Benefactor is part of a new G6 Alliance NYX service, which links ports in Asia with East Coast and South American ports.

GCT Bayonne terminal is currently the only container terminal capable of handling vessels of this size. Port Newark, Port Elizabeth and Staten Island terminals are off-limits until the roadway raising of the Bayonne Bridge is complete.
