This Sunday, June 26th, marks the beginning of this year’s Newark Boat Tour summer series!  Experience the great views of the city of Newark from the Passaic River and learn about the history, ecology, and development from Newark Riverfront Revival and Hackensack Riverkeeper.


There are two types of Riverfront Boat Tours:

Riverfront Tours: Boats leave from Newark Riverfront Park and follow the Passaic River to the tip of Newark Bay. Boats then go back up river to Newark’s edge along the Passaic at the Belleville border. Tours focus on Newark’s historical development, industry and redevelopment of the Riverfront.


Port Tours: Boats leave from Newark Riverfront Park and go down the Passaic River and into Newark Bay and the two docks at Port Newark. Tour is focused on the Port Industry, Ecology of the River and the future of sustainable development.


The first tours begin on Sunday, June 26th at 11am & 1pm from the Boat Dock located on the Orange Boardwalk

You must be at least 5 years old in order to sail. Tickets are $5 for Newark Residents and $15 for non-residents. Get your tickets by emailing or calling (201) 341-8311.
