Description: The A.J. Meerwald, New Jersey's official Tall Ship, is a magnificently restored, two-masted, 115-foot oyster schooner, built in 1928, and driven by over 3,500 square feet of sail. The Meerwald visits Alpine just once a year for a series of themed sailings focusing on New Jersey's history, art, music, and of course, nature. Today's morning and afternoon trips offer kids ages 5-12 and their parents a hands-on learning experience as the director of Tenafly Nature Center will introduce you to Hudson River fish, crabs and other creatures. Today's evening sailing invites guests for a three-hour sail featuring folk music and sea shanties with Thaddeus MacGregor, performer at the Kearney House & Tavern. Reservations are required. Presented by the Tenafly Nature Center.
