Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated annually from September 15th to October 15th, pays homage to the rich history and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx communities in the United States. In the city that never sleeps, where cultures converge and inspire, the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month takes on a unique flavor. By hopping on board the NYC Ferry, we’ll embark on a journey that promises not only breathtaking views of the city’s iconic skyline but also a taste of the rich Hispanic culture that has woven itself into the fabric of New York City.

We’ve compiled some of our favorite hispanic-owned businesses to support along our routes, as well as some exciting events to attend. Check it out!
