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!

Cruise the 8 miles of Brooklyn shore facing the Harbor’s Upper Bay from Newtown Creek through Sunset Park, once filled with manufacturing, shipping, and commerce. Although apartment towers and landscaped parks now dot the waterfront, Brooklyn still retains active trade and maritime business.
