Just do it. Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. No brainer, this was very very worth while. Compared to the cost of NYC in general, far worth every penny. Professional and safe. Highly recommend this...

Second time on the tour and it was still great. Such fun in the zodiac boat hitting the wake of other boats. There were children on this tour and their screams of joy were contagious.

This is the best way to see NYC from the water. Great views of the city, Brooklyn Bridge and Statue of Liberty. Very fun and informative.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

Hello, our 6pm departure returns to the dock at 7:30pm. That might be cutting it too close with an 8pm Broadway performance. You might just make it but I would suggest jumping on the 4pm tour which gets you back on the dock... More
