Join the Working Harbor Committee and OHNY on a boat tour to explore the Brooklyn waterfront and New York Harbor — places that are normally hidden from the eyes of most area residents and visitors.

The American Princess II will depart Pier 17 at 6:15pm and explore the Brooklyn waterfront down to Sunset Park, over to Kill Van Kull and Howland Hook, back Military Ocean and Global Marine Terminals and finally, past the Statue of Liberty on its way back to Pier 17. The tour lasts about 2 hours.

The world of working maritime vessels and facilities is both fascinating as well as vitally important to the area’s economic well being. Narrated by Captain John Doswell, the tour will focus on the built environment of the New York harbor and waterways and the maritime industry, both past and present. Purchase tickets here!

The Hidden Harbor Tours® help fulfill the Working Harbor Committee’s mission to strengthen awareness of the working harbor’s history and vitality today, and its opportunities for the future.
