Follow along with the GlassBarge Flotilla and visit the vessels as they tour the state of New York!
Check out the schedule below to learn when to meet the tour, or look at the PastPort Map for a the flotilla's current position. You can also read the blog updated regularly by the crew of the Lois McClure for more details about the journey.
Step aboard this replica 1862 Sailing Canal Boat at any of the tours stops. You are welcome to spend as much time aboard as you'd like, but our self-guided tours typically last about half an hour. Boarding of the vessel is first come, first served and is always free, with donations greatly appreciated! We apologize, but we don't take people out for rides, and this historically accurate replica is not handicap accessible.
Corning Museum of Glass' GlassBarge will provide daily glassblowing demonstrations between 11am and 6pm. All demos are approximately 30 minutes long and reservations are strongly encouraged, although free timed tickets will be available at www.cmog.org/GlassBarge. Registration will be live 4-6 weeks prior to each stop. Demos can also be viewed from the shore without a reservation.
South Street Seaport's historic wooden tug W.O Decker will also be on hand for interpretation and tours, times TBD.
