Modeled after an old-time Mississippi paddle wheel boat, the 150-passenger boat will transport your school and camp groups to an earlier time. See the bay islands, lighthouses, and more during the excursion. The Lauren Kristy departs from the Bay Shore Marina located at the end of Clinton Avenue in Bay Shore on Long Island.

Boat Excursion Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Did you know a boat can be built out of concrete and it will still float? As long as the boat is lighter than the water it displaces, it will stay above water. And what makes a boat move through the water? Throughout history, boats have been powered by wind, propellers, oars, motors, paddles, and ocean and river currents. Sailboats, which have been around for 5,000 years, can reach speeds of over 47 knots (about 54 mph) from wind power alone!
