An Overview

Every voyage on Clearwater is unique and exciting due to the shifting winds and tides of the Hudson River, the variety of docks we visit, the surprises we pull up in the fishing net and the individuals we bring aboard. We are always able to provide a top-notch educational program, in part because of the constantly-evolving learning environment the Hudson River presents. Educators, captains and crew all gain inspiration from the unexpected bird flying overhead, passing river traffic, the ever-changing skyline and the specific interests of our passengers.

themeAfter forty years of environmental education on the Hudson River, much of Clearwater’s curriculum has been honed to perfection. But within our educational model we have the flexibility to cater some of your specific interests. We love to focus on a particular theme or topic which you have already been studying or to which you would like an introduction. Please take a look at the following options for themed sails to see if there is one that might be an exciting match for your group.
