Meet the Crew

It takes a lot of work to keep the Half Moon running. Our student crewmembers take responsibility for many tasks on the ship--everything from keeping watch, to taking soundings, to more adventurous work (at right, a student is helping to furl a sail.) They also work hard at learning about the river and Hudson's voyage. The adult crewmembers supervise and teach the students, and perform the tasks that require specialized training.

The 2004 Voyage of Discovery has two student crews, one for each leg of the journey, and one adult crew. Click below to learn more about the ship's company.
