Overview

On this distinctive Manhattan architecture tour, you get a perspective on the city that many travelers don’t: by boat, as you circle around the island of Manhattan. Hop aboard a climate-controlled 1920s-style yacht, enjoy a refreshing beverage, and listen to your guide—a trained architect—tell stories about the city’s history, famous skyscrapers, and riverfront construction.

What to Expect

Your journey around Manhattan begins at Chelsea Piers. Climb aboard either the Manhattan or Manhattan II—both 1920s-style yachts with teak decks and climate-controlled observatories.

On the tour, you make a complete circumnavigation around Manhattan, traveling along the Hudson, East, and Harlem rivers. As you go, your guide—a trained architect—provides expert insight on the city’s history, skyscrapers, and riverfront development.

From the water, you see many of the city’s distinct landmarks, including the Chrysler Building and One World Trade Center. You also catch glimpses of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and other waterfront highlights. As you go, enjoy one complimentary glass of beer, wine, or other beverage on board, as well as hors d’oeuvres.

The tour ends at your departure point at Chelsea Piers.

Best full island cruise around NYC.

What a great tour for adults. As a Hotel Concierge, I've experienced many different tours and this is one of my favorites. Classic Harbor Line is top notch. I would definitely recommend this tour. Gain knowledge and enjoy magnificent views of the skyline.
