Currents and Tides - I Boat NY Harbor

Also note, the UN general assembly is back mid September and this may impact the east river traffic.

I did the trip many years ago in a 24' and it there were no issues as i timed the tides as recommended. It was a highlight of my trip from Boston to NJ. ( I plan to do that part trip again this weekend in both directions.)

dailywarren Just wanted to know if you've found a skipper yet. My suggestion is Capt. Rick Whiting. Salty, tough, honest and reliable. I've forwarded this on to him but don't want to waste his time because he'll keelhaul me (old school)!

CalebD I have done this trip several times also in both bigger and smaller boats then a Cat 30'. As others have already said it is well worth doing for the experience and fun.
Depending on the date you leave and the tides down the E. River you could try to do this trip in 1 very long day but more easily in 2 days.
I would help you do this for the price of a train ticket back from Marlboro.
Good luck.

The boat is a 30' Catalina, if your interested send me an email to: jarkari at yahoo.com with an approximate price.

Thank you,

People pay money for that sort of trip.....

Seriously, I've transited NY harbor twice. Fabulous experience, surprisingly easy once you do a little preplanning (I overplanned/studied for the first transit expecting it to be like that old "Frogger" game of a frog crossing a highway, with me as the frog).

Work the tides for Hells gate and its a blast. Stay tucked in on the appropriate side and give way to pretty much everything. As per the previous post take an experienced crew with you if you can. Unless you are an absolutely beginner at the boating game its a trip not to be missed.

NautiG David,

It's really not that bad a trip. Ok, maybe there is a little current through Hell Gate, and a bit of traffic in NY harbor. But seeing Manhattan from the water on your own boat is not to be beat. At the very least, you should go along for the ride with an experienced captain.

I bet if you asked here or around your marina, you could find someone who has done the trip a few times who would be willing to go with you for free. Just make sure you have a dependable engine and time the tides. You'll be fine. There's a first time for everything!
