VISIT RED HOOK, BROOKLYN & HISTORIC ERIE AND ATLANTIC BASINS by boat directly from Atlantic Highlands!(and raise a few dollars for NMHA!)

This visit follows the 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 exploring the Mary Whalen you will independently explore the Atlantic and Erie Basin historic waterfront and enjoy its many interesting sights, including the waterfront barge museum.

There are a wide variety of restaurants and bars, and the famous Fairway Market (a Whole Foods on steroids!). 

Guide to restaurants and bars HERE.


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.

0830: Mariner Departs Atlantic Highlands Marina.

Breakfast provided aboard.

11:30am: Arrive at and tour Mary A Whalen.

12:00pm to 2:30pm: Independent exploration of Red Hook.

5:00pm: Return to Atlantic Highlands Marina

Registration $65 per person, breakfast included. Cash bar aboard Mariner.
