Overview
Cruise all the way around Manhattan Island on a guided boat tour that takes in every angle of New York City’s iconic waterfront. Traveling by boat means unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty—ideal for snapping memorable photographs. With live narration throughout the cruise, you’ll learn about the Big Apple while passing all five of New York’s boroughs.
What to Expect

Make your way to the Circle Line pier in Manhattan, which is easily reached from the Hudson River Greenway and the cruise terminal.

Your cruise begins on the Hudson River and starts to circle Manhattan Island, following a route that includes three rivers, seven bridges, and up-close views of the Statue of Liberty.

Settle into a comfortable seat and take in the views as your guide points out landmarks on the Manhattan waterfront. There are snacks and drinks available for purchase, too.

Spot the One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower, the distinctive outline of the Empire State Building, and then pull into New York Harbor to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. When you turn up the East River, you’ll cruise past Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

The tour ends back on the Hudson River pier where you departed.

Fabulous!

I would recommend this cruise to everyone! We did the sunset cruise and it was my favorite while in NYC. It gives it different view of the city and you see things you would not normally see. DO IT!!!!!
