Manhattan Sightseeing Cruise

8.70 / 10
We did the 1.5h tour on top of the boat. It was cool but it was worth it. You circle all over Manhattan and get a little closer to the Statue of Liberty. I loved it. The only thing I did not enjoy is the narration that a man is making throughout the walk because he did not hear it. As an alternative they have an app in which there is an explanation of the places you see in different languages, yes, much shorter.

One of the best ways to discover the Big Apple is from the water, on a New York City Boat Tour. Take in the city’s incredible skyline and architecture from the city’s rivers. 

Manhattan Sightseeing Cruise

On this essential sightseeing cruise, you'll get the best views of New York from the water, and be able to take the best photos of the Statue of Liberty and other iconic monuments!

Sailing the Hudson River we'll leave Battery Park behind before sailing up the East River and passing under the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, along with the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges, and after arriving at the United Nations Headquarters the boat turns around to begin the journey back to the port.

The whole journey comes with narration in English, letting you know about the past and present of the unmissable icons which line the Big Apple's main artery.

Ticket validity

The ticket is valid for 7 days after the reservation date, so if you can’t go on the actual date, don’t worry.

Important information

Since there is no reserved seating on the boats, we recommend getting to the pier 83 at least 30 minutes before the departure time to validate the ticket and get seating.

The cruise might not be able to circumnavigate the whole island due to high tides.
