    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    I'm on a boat, motherfucker, don't you ever forget.

  • Stuart T.

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

    Stuart Thompson · June 21, 2014
  • 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.

    Crystal Harrison · June 11, 2014
  • Ariel K.

    Take the full trip around 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!

    Laura · June 2, 2014
  • Heidi T.

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

    Heidi Tucker · May 28, 2014
  • Andressa H.

    Eu fiz o passeio de 3 hrs! Não vale a pena em virtude do frio (mesmo na primavera) vc quer descer e ficar no quente, daí o passeio fica maçante. O passeio de 1hr, que mostra a estátua é o suficiente.

    Andressa Hiraoka · April 23, 2014
  • Tom

    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.

    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.

    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

  • Jane D.

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

    Jane Doe · October 13, 2013
  • Anja S.

    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!

    Anja Strajnar · October 13, 2013
  • drockgem

    show up an hour before, boat fills up quick, e-tickets don't save time, still have to turn into ticket

    drockgem · September 15, 2013
  • Lynn A.

    If you want to see another view of NYC then I highly recommend this 2 hour cruise on the Hudson. Money well spent!

    Lynn Alaway · July 27, 2013
  • Beth A.

    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.

    Beth A · July 24, 2013

    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.

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

    Jason Richardson · February 25, 2013
  • Jini

    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.

    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
  • Rashaad C.

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