Journey

There are two tours available: one is 15-minutes long and the other is 20-minutes long.

15-minute tour

Enjoy breath-taking views over the Hudson River during this tour as it flies over the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island and Manhattan’s financial district.

The tour includes incredible views of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the USS Intrepid, the George Washington Bridge or the immense Central Park. There is so much to see that you won’t know where to look and you’ll wish you could stay in the air forever. 

20-minute tour

The longer tour continues north until you get to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Columbia University and Palisades Park in New Jersey (the famous cliffs that lead to the Hudson River).

At the very end of the tour, you’ll fly over the incredible Yankees Stadium.

Timetable

When you book the activity, you must choose one of the two time slots we offer (from 12 pm to 2 pm or from 2 pm to 4 pm). After booking, we'll contact you to specify the exact time of the flight.
