Great cruise around Manhattan! Well narrated and highly informative (and I grew up around here)! Would highly recommend for all visitors to NYC!
Make your way to the Circle Line pier in Manhattan, which is easily reached from the Hudson River Greenway and the cruise terminal.
Your cruise begins on the Hudson River and starts to circle Manhattan Island, following a route that includes three rivers, seven bridges, and up-close views of the Statue of Liberty.
Settle into a comfortable seat and take in the views as your guide points out landmarks on the Manhattan waterfront. There are snacks and drinks available for purchase, too.
Spot the One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower, the distinctive outline of the Empire State Building, and then pull into New York Harbor to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. When you turn up the East River, you’ll cruise past Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Upper East Side.The tour ends back on the Hudson River pier where you departed.

Very informative, highly interactive Malaki our host was great fun and very witty. Make sure you do this early in your visit to comprehend the size of the Island of Manhattan. See if you can remember even half of the bridges names you pass under.
More than a trip round the bay! Superb scenery. Clean, comfortable boat. Friendly, professional staff. Hugely knowledgeable, articulate, local guide. You get what you pay for - very good value for money. Geology, geography, history, politics, gossip and fun. Not to be missed, I assure...More
