Overview
Though many tours take you to the Statue of Liberty, few tours cruise you past this American landmark on an actual tall ship. Enjoy fantastic vistas of this must-see attraction with this New York Harbor cruise, where you can sail the waters of Lower Manhattan on a multi-masted boat, and enjoy the wind on your face along the way.

If you would like to go on a boat cruise to see the sights, then this is the way. Nothing like as packed on as the other boat tours and far more relaxing. Nice staff. Food and booze available.
