Boating Safety Day Draws Forty Participants

Some 40 people joined the NJSEA and the NJ State Police Marine Division at River Barge Park in Carlstadt for “Boating Safety Day” on Saturday, May 9. Trooper Robert Albano discussed how boat drivers can navigate waterways while staying out of harm’s way by obeying speed regulations and keeping aware of other boats, swimmers or obstacles.  He also performed safety checks on boats docked at the marina – there should be flares, first-aid kits and life jackets onboard, among other items.
Participants were also treated to NJSEA pontoon boat tours of the Hackensack River. Our regular pontoon boat tour season begins June 3 and run through September. The tours, led by expert narrators, provide a unique opportunity to experience and learn about the river and its surrounding environment and wildlife from an up-close vantage point.
