Our staff maintains and operates Interport's three pilot boats that serve New York harbor and Long Island Sound. Dispatcher/phone service operates 24 hours a day. A 36 hour advance notice of arrival is suggested with a 12 and 6 hour update in order to coordinate dispatching of pilots.
Today, Interport Pilots is the only multi-port federal pilot group in the nation. Our area of operations extends over six states and includes nearly 300 miles of license coverage. This full service pilot group boards U.S. vessels in the domestic trades at sea bound for ports on the Delaware River, New York Harbor and Long Island Sound. In doing so, we are the only alternative to the state pilot monopolies that operate in these areas. In addition, Interport offers pilot service for the C and D canal to Baltimore, and docking and shifting services in New York Harbor.
