Tour | Public Tour of the United States Coast Guard Icebreaker


USCGC Sturgeon Bay is the newest of the United States Coast Guard 140-foot Bay-class cutters. Homeported in Bayonne, New Jersey, the primary missions of Sturgeon Bay and her crew are Domestic Icebreaking and Ports, Waters, & Coastal Security. During the winter months, Sturgeon Bay is responsible for providing search and rescue capabilities to the ice-covered areas in New York City and the Hudson Valley, as well as throughout coastal New England. The cutter also facilitates the safe navigation of commercial product, including gasoline and heating oil, through the ice-choked Hudson River from New York City to Albany. In addition to ice breaking, Sturgeon Bay is heavily involved in providing waterside security for the port of New York/New Jersey, the busiest port on the East Coast. Sturgeon Bay is also responsible for monitoring vessel traffic, enforcing boating regulations for recreational and commercial vessels, and acting as lead security for high-profile events in the port. Sturgeon Bay is crewed by 18 personnel, consisting of 15 enlisted members and 3 officers. She was built by Bay City Marine in San Diego, California, launched on 12 September 1987, and commissioned on 20 August 1988. Her overall length is 140 feet with a beam of 37 feet, displacing 662 tons.

Dance Performance | Multimedia Dance Performance: interactive journey through different areas of a Tall Ship


Immersive, site-responsive, multimedia dance performances which unfolds against the backdrop of a historic vessel. Choreographed by award-winning dancer-artistic director and the talented performers, this slate of dance vignettes has been inspired by and created specifically for the venue to artfully showcase an interactive journey through different areas of the ship, while delving into the rich history of this international cargo vessel--the last of its kind. Dance will take place in the massive cargo hold, the forecastle where the crew ate and slept, the captain's saloon, and more. The piece will provide insight into the unseen lives of the laborers who helped to build New York City into the global hub it is today and the unexpected role of the sea as a site for freedom from the racial and gender barriers of the era. The audience will not be seated during the one-hour event and will actively move throughout the ship to witness this site-specific performance to experience intimate and engaging moments with performers that include video projection, recorded original music, and text. The program involves climbing a few stairs, walking up an angled gangway, and descending a few stairs onto the deck. The lower decks are accessible via stairs, while the upper deck requires navigating steep ladder-like stairs. The performance is repeated at 3:30 pm.
