Tide Information:  As we depart the Statue at approximately 4pm we will be getting a push of up to 1.9kts so it will be a quick trip to up the river to 59th and the pier. Our return we will have about 1 kt on the nose.


For those departing from the long island sound on Friday is to enter hellgate at 9am and on Saturday it's 10 am.  


For a return to the LI sound on Sunday the ideal time to enter the east river would be at 4pm.
