$25 adults / $10 kids non-refundable donation. No kids under age 4. Generally runs 2.5 hours. Call 201-968-0808 to reserve. Date is transferable. Join us for a trip up the Hackensack River from the southern Meadowlands to heart of the city of Hackensack. Taking the same route traveled by the coastal schooners that used to carry cargo to and from Bergen County, we will pass the ruins of their former docks and landings and discuss the region’s all-but-forgotten maritime history. We will travel as far north as the Court Street Bridge and offer participants an opportunity to get an up-close view of the USS Ling – a WW2 Balao-class submarine and centerpiece of the NJ Naval Museum.
