Hackensack River keeper, Laurel Hill Park, Secaucus, NJ

Captain Bill Sheehan started Eco-Cruises in 1994 to increase awareness of the lower Hackensack River as a vital natural and recreational resource. Since then more than 50,000 people have traveled with us. Most Eco-Cruises include 2 ½ hours on the water and are fully narrated by either Capt. Bill or Program Director Capt. Hugh Carola – both of whom are US Coast Guard-licensed captains.

Open Eco-Cruises are scheduled 
in advance and open to individuals, couples & families. Itineraries include Meadowlands Discovery, Boating Thru Bergen and Newark Bay Excursion. To reserve seats, call Capt. Hugh at 201-968-0808. Open trips are not available for group outings.
