In honor of our Fleet Week this Memorial Day Weekend, Classic Harbor Line and Turnstile Tours have partnered to offer a special series of Naval Harbor History Tours aboard the MS Kingston. 

The Kingston offers wrap-around seating, on a small intimate classic yacht with un-obscured views for all!  The back observatory is covered to protect you from the bright sun but has open windows for you to feel the fresh breeze in your hair! Guests are welcome on the forward deck as well to soak in the sun and to score fantastic photographs of the city skyline!

This special 2.5-hour tour will explore the military history of New York Harbor from the Revolutionary War to today, with special emphasis on the role of the port in World War II. We will visit historic military sites, monuments, fortifications and see historic and modern fighting ships up close. Join us on Memorial Day Weekend for a special, in-depth tour of our rich harbor-related war history plus up close visits to the military ships visiting New York Harbor.

During World War II, New York was arguably the most important port in the world – more men and supplies shipped out from the harbor than any other in the country, and docks and shipyards worked around the clock for the war effort.  In addition to stories about the harbor's military history, the tour will also include oral histories of men and women who worked and served on the New York waterfront during World War II that will help bring these places to life.

This tour will be led by Turnstile Tours, with support by the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92.

The purpose of the project is to reduce the risks of extreme weather and climate change, as well as improve quality of life and expand community access to the waterfront.
