Come join us for an incredible journey on the Hackensack River, through the marshes of the New Jersey Meadowlands, on the Hackensack River Keeper Cruise. Pre-registration is required. The cost is $30 per person. Directions will be sent to those who register.
Most Eco-Cruises include 2 ½ hours on the water and are fully narrated by Capt. Bill and/or Program Director, Capt. Hugh Carola – both of whom are US Coast Guard-licensed captains.
MEADOWLANDS DISCOVERY – This trip takes participants on an excursion through the lower tidal reaches of the Hackensack River and its wildlife-rich estuary, the Meadowlands. The shallow draft of our boats enables us to visit numerous wetlands including the Mill Creek Marsh, Kingsland Creek and the Berry’s Creek Canal; the highlight of every Meadowlands Eco-Cruise being the Sawmill Creek Wildlife Management Area – the “Jewel of the Meadowlands”. The Sawmill is home to a staggering amount of birdlife including shorebirds, waterfowl, herons, raptors and more.
