The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
Guests can sponsor the Battleship’s rubber duck, Captain Quack, and then cheer for him in a race with other Captain Quacks in the Wiggins Marina on Sunday, June 10 at noon. The winning duck will win you four tickets to the Battleship Blast Luau Dinner on June 30. Second place gets a family overnight on the Battleship on New Year’s Eve. Third place gets a family pack of tickets to watch the July 4th fireworks from the Battleship! All guests who sponsor a Captain Quack Rubber Duck will also get two tickets per duck to watch fireworks over the Delaware River on Saturday, June 30!
Sponsorships, which range from $10 to sponsor a Captain Quack rubber duck, to $15 for sponsor and keep Captain Quack but you have to come to the Marina for the race on June 10, to $20 to keep Captain Quack and you do not have to attend the race — we’ll send the Captain Quack to you!
