Explore the City from the Passaic River with Newark Boat Tours!

This weekend Newark Riverfront Revival will be hosting Boat Tours along the Passaic River!

Saturday, August 29th we will be offering Boat Tours at 11am and 1pm that focus on the history, ecology and redevelopment of the Passaic River in Newark. These tours leave from the Boat Dock located at Newark Riverfront Park on Raymond Boulevard between Somme and Van Buren Streets and sail downriver towards Port Newark and then swing back around and go upriver towards Belleville.

Our Sunday, August 30th Port Tours will explore the inner workings of the Port of Newark which is the 2nd largest in the country and the largest on the Eastern Seaboard.

Both tours are hosted by Newark Riverfront Revival with Captains Bill and Hugh from the Hackensack Riverkeeper and are $5 for Newark residents, $15 for non-residents.

If you are interested in attending, call or text (201) 341-8311 or email to make your reservation. Must be 4 years and older.
