Description: Hosted by renowned maritime historian Bill Miller. We begin by passing around the southern tip of Manhattan and the large ferry terminals to Staten Island and Governors Island. We travel north up along the west side of Manhattan passing the Battery & Castle Clinton, then most of Hudson River Park, including historic ships, ferry terminals, fireboat terminals, historic Pier 57, Chelsea Piers, excursion boats, the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum and finally the passenger ship terminals. We then cross over to the New Jersey side passing the historic Hoboken waterfront, scene of "On The Waterfront," another active shipyard, Morris Canal entrance and finally, as all our tours do, we visit the Statue of Liberty for a moment before returning to Pier 16.
