Electric Boat Tour on The Independence
December 9, 2013
Glide over one of Brooklyn’s most scenic landscapes.
Take an electric boat tour of the Lullwater in Prospect Park, and you will find yourself surrounded by stunning natural beauty in the middle of New York City. You may find it so tranquil that you forget you are in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the world!
The boat Independence is modeled after the electric boats that sailed on the waterways of Prospect Park at the turn of the 20th century. Docked at the historic Boathouse Audubon Center, the Independence offers tours along the Lullwater that aim to be both fun and relaxing. Enjoy the incredible natural beauty of the flora and fauna along the water as the boat motors quietly about. As you tour the Lullwater, you might find yourself getting carried away by the tranquil landscape and feeling as though you are from a simpler time or without a care in the world. Enjoy the calm water and the lush surroundings of Prospect Park and take a break from the city’s hustle and bustle outside the park walls.
Bright green trees and grass, clear water and the carefree Lullwater all make the electric boat tour on the Independence a unique New York City experience. The urban oasis of Prospect Park becomes all the more special when you see it from the water.
