New York City has a rich maritime history and DockNYC sites welcome the opportunity to host cultural, educational, and historic vessels. We work closely with vessel operators to create programs that offer NYC schools and local residents the opportunity to experience and learn from ships that played—or still play—a role in commerce, science, and public service (e.g. fire boats, tall ships, and US and foreign flagged navel vessels) .

DockNYC’s berthing locations offer a central location from where to host excursions and cruises across the NY, NJ, and Long Island region. We are excited to accommodate recreational, educational, corporate, and dinner harbor cruises. Transient docking for commercial or private vessels is available at most DockNYC locations. Our network of varied docking locations help make short-term visits productive and enjoyable.
