Atlantic City rightfully directs most of its press and marketing activity towards things that cater to the over-21 market. After all, it’s a gambling town, and the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority (correctly) does not lose sight of that. But an activity that might unfortunately go overlooked during a visitor’s time here is Atlantic City Cruises. The cruises are a spectacular option for families visiting in the summer, and also for the other parent with the kids when Parent #1 is in convention meetings all day. As a concierge, I’m amazed sometimes at the number of people that didn’t know an excursion like this was available, and I’m all too happy to help. The cruise season currently runs from May 10th to October 14th, with anywhere from one to six departures per day from two convenient points in Atlantic City. Cruises depart from Historic Gardner’s Basin at New Hampshire Avenue, at the northern end of the island. (Atlantic City is on an island – a lot of people don’t realize that when they’re here – fun fact.) Cruises aboard the Cruisn 1also depart from the “E” Dock of the Senator Frank S. Farley State Marina, which is right across the street from Trump Marina. Captain and Owner of Atlantic City Cruises Jeff George does everything with his boat, from private parties to fundraisers, along with his regularly scheduled itineraries. I’ve personally been on several private group cruises with Jeff, and I loved every one. The scheduled voyage choices include things like a 9am combination bay and ocean cruise that highlights the ocean inlet and the resort’s bayside. It’s only an hour, which leaves a full day on the beach. Other options are the 11am narrated casino skyline tour, which looks at the AC skyline from the ocean side. Enjoy Memory Lane at sea for an hour. Cruisn 1 is a U.S. Coast Guard-certified passenger vessel with a maximum capacity of 150 people, but Jeff likes to keep it around 100 if possible so people can be more comfortable as they take in the sea air and the views. Atlantic City Cruises has been featured on The Weather Channel, NBC 10 Philadelphia, Fox 29 Philadelphia, CBS 3, and CN8. The New York Times, the AC Press, and the Philadelphia Inquirer have all done reports on AC Cruises. Also new for this season is Atlantic City’s only parasailing outlet, courtesy of AC Cruises. It used to be that anyone who wanted to parasail had to go down to Ocean City and fight the traffic into and out of the family resort. Not only can you now parasail without leaving AC, you can fly solo or tandem and take the option of being dunked in the bay on your way down from your temporary 500-foot perch or coming back to terra firma completely dry. In short, I love to cruise on Atlantic City Cruises, and everyone visiting the city that’s Always Turned On should definitely consider AC Cruises in their vacation planning. The AC Mole gives him two opposable thumbs way up!
