East River Journey Through Hell’s Gate to Long Island Sound

  • Pier 1, St. George 200 Promenade at Lighthouse Point NY, 10301 United States (map)

Join the National Lighthouse Museum for a cruise on the East River!

Join National Lighthouse Museum members and friends for a cruise up the East River and pass through Hell's Gate to Long Island Sound. We will cruise as far as Execution Rocks Lighthouse and learn of its gruesome history. The Stepping Stones Light is not to be missed!

This is a memorable three hour cruise with expert presenters sharing little known facts about New York City history and the lighthouses we'll see.

This season we will be yachting on the Majestic Princess which features climate-controlled interior spaces with large windows as well as ample outdoor space to fully enjoy the "yachting experience." As for food items, the Majestic Princess offers lunch and snack items as well as a bar for "adult beverages." We're happy to report that this yacht also features a wireless sound system for all decks! 

The boat leaves promptly at 11:00 am from Pier 1, St. George, Staten Island, adjacent to the Museum.  Delays are possible, but not likely.  Please refrain from booking a subsequent event too close to the time our tour is scheduled to end so that your plans will not be impacted. Non refundable tickets are $60 Adults, $40 Children (under 10yrs.), $50 Military and Seniors (62+). 

This trip takes place rain or shine.
