Truth be told, I don’t post many people carrier photos on this blog, and I mean no slight to crews who work them.  The very best boat handling is in order whenever passengers are aboard.  What’s remarkable is that I’ve seen all these vessels/taken these photos since Monday of this week!

Circle Line, which carries at least a million passengers a year in the sixth boro,  has a long and interesting history, an introduction to which you can read here.  Circle Line Manhattan was launched in 2008, to replace Circle Line XI.

Know this Delaware?

Periodically, the 1974 Cape May-Lewes Ferry sends its boats into the boro to have scheduled maintenance done at Caddell’s shipyard. 

Then there are the VIpeople movers.  Utopia IV first caught my attention because it was actually US-registered, which made me wonder who this patriotic owner is.  Later, I realized I’d seen this yacht before here.  It also gained some notoriety about a year ago here, although then owner, RIP, was not on board at the time.

I don’t recall seeing Norwegian Sun in the boro, but don’t take me as a reliable judge of cruise ship comings and goings.  Not even half a year ago, Sun was in Alaskan waters.

Ocean Explorer first arrived in the boro just over a year ago, as seen here.  She’s here after having spent part of the summer sailing on the Great Lakes.  Click here for near future tours on the cruise ship with the Ulstein bow.

If you’re on the sixth boro or the Hudson River today, you may see this Sea Lion, the Nat Geo Sea Lion.  She’s Seattle-registered and was launched by Nichols Brothers Boatbuilders as Great Rivers Explorer in 1982.

 

She and her sister Nat Geo Sea Bird get around;  unfortunately they can’t fit through the Erie Canal. Having said that, the Hudson River is a world-class scenic ride, and has always been. 

There’s that bossy head again….
