These are the trips you have seen on TV and read about in The New York Times, The Record, and the Star-Ledger. The ones you’ve always wanted to take. Come join us for an incredible journey on the Hackensack River, through the marshes of the New Jersey Meadowlands, and more!

Eco-Cruises are fun, educational tours aboard Hackensack Riverkeeper’s specially rigged 30-foot pontoon boats. Captain Bill Sheehan started the program in 1994 to increase awareness of the lower Hackensack River as a vital natural and recreational resource. Since then, more than 75,000 people have explored the river with us. Most Eco-Cruises include 2 ½ hours on the water and are fully narrated by Captain Bill and/or Program Director, Captain Hugh Carola – both of whom are US Coast Guard-licensed captains.
