Hudson River Pilots require daylight navigation in the upper Hudson River, meaning the last 5 hrs on arrivals and the first 5 hrs on departures.
If your vessel arrives/departs with a deep draft of greater the 28 Ft. the docking/undocking will be a tide move
Arrivals — high water slack/beginning of ebb tide
Departures — low water slack/beginning of flood tide
It is aprox. 13.5 hrs transit from Ambrose to Albany
Ballast Restriction — if your vessel intends to discharge ballast in the Hudson River, ballast must be taken or tanks washed in ocean water deeper than 2,000 mtrs and have a salinity of 30 parts per thousand or greater.
