Event description

Description

*While New York Adventure Club does not charge for events hosted by the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority, advance registration and a deposit will be required, which will be fully refunded upon attendance.*


While you've probably only experienced the New Jersey Meadowlands from a car on the highway or window of a commuter train, it's time to get up close and personal with the thriving ecosystem that awaits at the water's surface.

Join New York Adventure Club for a pontoon trip through the Hackensack River and its marshes with the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority (NJSEA), whose mission includes protecting the delicate balance of nature in 14 towns throughout Bergen and Hudson counties.

Led by an expert NJSEA staff member, our unique maritime experience will include:


  • A two-hour boat trip on the Hackensack River to see acres of preserved wetlands and a thriving ecosystem, all framed by a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline
  • An overview of the Meadowlands District (home to 21 parks, including eight miles of walking trails and 3,400 acres of preserved wetlands) and Hackensack River estuary's storied history
  • Wildlife and bird sighting opportunities, including nearly three dozen on the State Endangered, Threatened and Species of Special Concern lists


See you there!


*Please bring bottled water, and a hat since the boats are uncovered

**Spray sunscreen and bug spray are not allowed on the boat or dock

***Food and drinks (other than bottled water) are not allowed on the boat

****Restrooms can be accessed at the marina before boarding the boat
