    Stroll around Manhattan gives a good view of the city:from Bronx to the Battery Pack Park.In addition,the boat sails very close to the StatueOfLiberty.This excursion is good choice! Recommend it 👍

    It may be hard to get here but it's worth it. The cruises here are fantastic! You get spectacular views of the city all the time. Go on the Harbor Lights Cruise to catch the sunset 😍😍😍😍

    A good way to explore Manhattan and see the island from a different perspective. The tour guide was knowledgable and is very keen to give a tip or two about his city.

    Best way to see the Manhattan skyline & Statue of Liberty. Take the 2 hour tour & sit on the left side (port) to start. They let you walk around to take pictures. Drinks, snacks & restrooms onboard.
  • Amy C.
    A great thing to do if you want to see the skyline and Statue of Liberty up close. However, the bar line takes FOREVER and so many people are standing up taking pics that it's hard to enjoy at times.

    Do the 90 min semicircle for great views of lower Manhattan and the statue. Leave extra time in your plans because it may last 2hrs! Well worth it! Included NYCpass, explorer pass, city pass, etc.

    Great way to see the city from the other point of view! If you want to see (just see) the Statue of Liberty, that's it as well - no need to take another trip!

    They'll tell you to arrive 45 minutes early, but if you want to get a good seat outside on a nice day, show up even earlier. The nice seats outdoors get snatched quickly.

    Tour host Malachy points this out as the money shot - view of bridges w Statue of Liberty and Manhattan. He narrated the two-hour crises- great!!!

    4th July fireworks cruise offered amazing views from the East River. However the "open" bar is limited and the tray passed hors doeuvres very hard to get.

    The 3 hour full cruise is great. Sit on the left or head outside to the front of the ship to get the best views of Manhattan.

    We went on the liberty cruise - around 1hr, taking in the sights from midtown to the southern tip of Manhattan inc the Statue of Liberty. The souvenir photo costs $25 however - what a rip off!

    Unless you love really loud music and dancing, avoid their ThirstyThursday cruise. Otherwise, a lovely way to see Manhattan via the Hudson.

    Harbor Lights Cruise or bust- gives you spectacular views of the island, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty just as the city starts to light up.

    A nice way to see the city.. Very busy though get there early to sit on top deck.
  • Andre R.

    Totally worth the experience with a New York Pass. Take the full 2.5 hour ride and see all of the island!

    If you pay the extra to sit in the premier seating be sure to get seats along the railing. Under the canopy the view sucks.

    The view is great, but it's hard to hear the guide speaking. Also, I felt tricked - my ticket said I could use the fountain drink upon a $10 purchase - but only once! It was not clearly stated.

    The full circle line cruise is amazing; sit on the left hand side of the ferry for a better view of New York.

    This being the most patriotic month, get a close-up view of the majestic Lady Liberty on a 75-minute cruise. (Pier 83, W 42nd St at 12th Ave; 001 212 563 3200; ₤12-₤20. Sails 11am; 1pm; 3pm).

    Great! However, sometimes they try to go all the around the island and get stuck. My trip turned into 4 hours

    Skip the 3hr cruise unless you REALLY want the full experience. Above the 160s on the East Side and then the whole loop back down the West Side there isn't much to see and drags.

    Top deck can get very chilly. Wait indoors till the return trip: top deck will have cleared out substantially: more space, better view, less time in the cold.

    For the best views on Manhattan, take the Full Island Cruise!

    Get here 1.5 hours early to sit on the outside deck, otherwise you're stuck looking through a window inside.

    Buy a cup for 7 bucks right before boarding and you get unlimited drinks and refills on the boat. Drinks are usually at least 4 dollars!

    Definitely worth it. I'm doing the 3 hour tour now and its worth it so far!
  • Erik H.
    Did the full 2,5 hours tour. It was good, but tide was too high so didn't make it all the way around manhattan. We did premier. Not worth it, but don't really regret it either.

    Visit Circle Line on day one of your trip. Use it to scope out possible excursions for the rest of your visit to New York.

    I kinda liked it. The tour guide was quite annoying. Always bragging upon his friend "Jerry" then the man who cleans the buildings and bridges all that jazz. The food was quite gross.

    If you have time to burn this is a good way to get the understanding that NYC is a group of islands and to see Jersey the right way...from a distance.

    in winter the full island 3 hr cruise prolly wont be full island due to ice in water and harlem river freezing.

    Bring earplugs; the tour guide won't shut up but has nothing of value to say. Stay on the bow for the best view.

    It is suuuuuper cold during the cruise; bring hat, coat, scarf, jacket, pants and even gloves to avoid getting a cold. And kleenex for runny nose lol

    Take the 1.5 hour half circle cruise. It's plenty to see and almost too long. Please don't buy the $25 picture that the photographers make you take. What a rip off.

    Do not recommend the big tour around whole manhattan as the north is boring and even the guide did not know what to say when you are there.

    And they turn off the AC halfway through the cruise. It's 90 degrees and everyone is boiling.

    Terrible experience, the ladies at the line are very rude and they even grabbed me by the hand to move me away when I asked them something. Don't waste your money here.

    Brasileiros: a dica é sentar ao lado esquerdo da embarcação. De preferência no fundão. Assim conseguirão ver e tirar fotos numa boa localização. A estátua da liberdade ficará a direita.

    Прогулка вокруг Манхэттена длится примерно 3 ч и дает неплохое представление о городе — от Бронкса до Батарейного парка. Кроме того, кораблик проплывает совсем рядом со статуей Свободы.
