Obscura Society NY: Coney Island Creek Excursion

Explore the shipwrecks and hidden nature of Coney Island Creek on this excursion to the wilds and ruins of Brooklyn's southern tip.

Join the adventurers from Underwater New York for a rare and spectacular tour of the ship graveyard that is the Coney Island Creek! Described as a one time "rumrunner’s haven and a dumping ground for everything from bodies to old cars" the creek continues to hold the wreckage and memories of New York's shipping history, including a half submerged home-made submarine, and the timbers of ancient whalers.

Come prepared to explore!
