Overview
Exploring the city on a RIB allows you to see so much more in a short period of time. Your adrenaline will be pumping on this exciting ride. This highly engineered boat is the same kind used by Navy SEALS, Coast Guard and first responders around the world because of its speed, safety and reliability. No worries about getting wet, the boat is designed to keep you dry as you tour.

This RIB tour is the only way to go! It was the best part of our trip. Ride takes a perfect 30 minutes to see the statue, skyline and all bridges from the water. We have boys 10 and 13, and we all have a short attention span so didn’t want the drawn out Ferry or cruise tour.

Traveled 40 min to get there in middle of day. They were a no show. No notice on website. Golf workers (where you are supposed to report) started that they were no where to be seen. Some sprinkles earlier in morning, but pretty calm overcast day. Did not answer calls to phone.
