Join us alongside the John J Harvey Fireboat team as we cruise around lower Manhattan. Hear stories about their heroic efforts on September 11, 2001. Now a museum and education center, the Harvey previously served 6 decades as an active FDNY steam fireboat since she was built in 1931. The boat is history afloat in NY Harbor playing an integral role in protecting our waterways throughout her active years, and also since then when she was called back into service to aid FDNY fireboats on 9/11. Weather permitting, we’ll cruise to meet the boat docked at Pier 66 and climb aboard for an exciting behind the scenes tour with Captain Huntley Gill. If time allows, we’ll watch as Harvey starts her engines and prepares for a truly spectacular full water cannon display from the Hudson River.
