    Take the 3 hour cruise to see awesome parts of the Island. Stand at the bow at thr boat for the calmest ride and easiest photographs.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Take the 75mins. Cruise for a quick harbor tour.

    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).

    If all you want to see is the statue, the 75 min cruise is more than enough.

    This is one of the best ways to see NYC if you really want to see the skylines and learn the history. Very informative.

    Brian Searl · October 17, 2010
  • Jane D.

    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

    Must see! Visit site for info:

    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.

    Daniel L · September 28, 2011
  • Andrea O.

    The Harbour Light Cruise is the best!

    Andrea Occhi · October 12, 2010
  • Crystal H.

    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.

    It's heated inside!

    Best boat tour ever! Be warned the credit card machine doesn't work. Bring cash if you want refreshments on the boat.

    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!!!

    Definitely worth it. I'm doing the 3 hour tour now and its worth it so far!

    I rode the Beast speedboat, it was a blast! Super fun and speed show with loud disco music! Awesome!

  • Leighleigh

    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.

    Amazing view of the skyline! I'm originally from Florida, so I can't wait to get back on the boat and water again this summer! - Shannon, Social Media Specialist @ CitySights NY

    Do the 2 hr cruise and stand at the bow of the boat for great views and photos. Book tickets online to get discounts to other NYC attractions.

    Awesome views of NYC. The people watching isn't bad either. A great way to relax and see the sights

    Karen Dawson · October 9, 2014
  • Tommy D.

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

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

    Kirsten Alana · August 22, 2014
  • Margaret F.

    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.

    If you don't have a VIP pass, there's a good chance that you'll be sitting inside.

    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.

    Usewordswisely · July 4, 2012

    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.
