Family Ecology Sail Celebrate Father’s Day by embarking on this family adventure with the South Street Seaport Museum! As we sail on Pioneer, you are invited to haul on ropes to raise the sails; study the ecology of New York Harbor; measure water characteristics that are critical to the ecosystem, such as salinity, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen; and examine seaweeds and other plants, as well as a variety of small organisms including plankton. You’ll also learn how to use a chart and compass to navigate! Advance reservations are recommended.

About Seaport Museum

The South Street Seaport Museum, located in the heart of the historic Seaport District, preserves and interprets the history of New York as a great port city. Founded in 1967, the Seaport Museum includes an extensive collection of works of art and artifacts, a maritime reference library, galleries, working 19th-century print shop, and a fleet of historic vessels that all work to tell the story of “Where New York Begins.”
