present the
Hackensack River Tour
Thursday, August 15, 2019 - Pontoon Boats depart at 4:30 PM
Laurel Hill Park, Secaucus, NJ


Come join us for an incredible journey on the Hackensack River, through the marshes of the New Jersey Meadowlands, and more!

Eco-Cruises are fun, educational tours aboard Hackensack Riverkeeper’s specially rigged 30-foot pontoon boats, the r/v Robert H. Boyle II and the r/v Geraldine Theresa. Captain Bill Sheehan started Eco-Cruises in 1994 to increase awareness of the lower Hackensack River as a vital natural and recreational resource. Since then more than 50,000 people have traveled with us. Most Eco-Cruises include 2 ½ hours on the water and are fully narrated by either Capt. Bill or Program Director Capt. Hugh Carola – both of whom are US Coast Guard-licensed captains.

Meet us at Laurel Hill Park (see directions) by at least 4:00 PM because the boats depart at 4:30 PM promptly.

There will be a $35 registration fee to provide for a donation to the Hackensack River Keeper. Each boat can hold up to 12 persons but the total number of persons available to attend the boat tour is 22. Please register and pay early so you don't miss out. Once we reach 22 persons we will start a waiting list. Those who have registered and paid in advance will have priority. We will try and designate a weather date also in case of bad weather the day of the event. Sorry, no refunds.
