VISIT BROOKLYN'S ERIE AND ATLANTIC BASINS Directly from Atlantic Highlands (and raise a few dollars for NMHA!)
This visit is a follow up of our famous Governor's Island trip in 2016. On June 10, 2017, the Mariner will take the first 40 registered guests to Red Hook, Brooklyn by boat direct from Atlantic Highlands.
We will cross New York Harbor and tie up at the historic Mary Whalen at the Atlantic Basin in Brooklyn. After the Mary Whalen visit we will walk the Atlantic and Erie Basin historic waterfront and enjoy its many interesting sights including the waterfront barge museum.
Registration is not yet open.
Note: Since this is commercial waterfront we will have to board the Mary Whalen from Mariner's top deck. This means that modest agility will be required in negotiating a steep ladder to the top deck.(Similar to climbing an attic fold out stair.) This trip will involve some walking (about 1.5 miles at a very leisurely pace). Ubers and taxi can also be used to make the walk shorter.
