The Hackensack River is located off the northern end of Newark Bay, where the bay splits into the Passaic River and the Hackensack River at Kearney Point. The Hackensack River Inlet lies on the west side of Jersey City and is 18 miles northwest of Sandy Hook and 12 miles south of the George Washington Bridge on Manhattan.

The Hackensack River is an industrial river and the first few miles are lined with all manner of loading docks, manufacturing facilities and numerous lift and bascule bridges. Point being, this is not a cruising destination, but is significant in its closeness to New York City.

Navigating the Water:
