Environmental Tour Boat

Thursday, July 29, 1999
Built for the pending Atlantis Marine World, Atlantis Explorer will offer passengers a "floating classroom" experience, as it sails down the Peconic River during a 2.5-hour cruise. Participants will discover geological history, as well as local flora and fauna, comprising Long Island's diverse natural resources. During the cruise, the boat will "beach" itself along a remote region of Flanders Bay, allowing travellers to disembark directly to the shore. The vessel is the first phase in the development of Atlantis Marine World. Constructed by SeaArk Marine, the 54 ft. vessel is propelled by twin 200 hp Yamaha outboards, and features three overhead dome lights, a four-in. compass, a digital depthsounder, a PA system with two speakers and hydraulic steering, as well as a 75 gal. holding tank.
