    What to Expect
    Soak up stunning, unobstructed views of Manhattan’s skyline and its iconic landmarks from the water on this sightseeing cruise aboard one of the city’s historical Circle Line boats.

    Step aboard your comfortable boat and see One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, and many more of Manhattan’s sights as you sail down the Hudson River.

    Then, cruise to within 100 feet (30.5 meters) of the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island, and pass Ellis Island, once the gateway for millions of people who came here looking for a new life.

    As you sail, listen to educational and entertaining narration from a professional tour guide: gaining insight into the landmarks you pass and hearing their fascinating backstories. And along the way, purchase drinks (own cost) from your boat’s on-board cash bars.

    Your cruise concludes back at the starting point.

    The boarding of the boat could have been organized better. However, once the tour starting it was excellent. The tour guide, Lee, and the crew made it a special experience.

    I was hesitant about going on this tour because I had already done the entire tour (Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island) 2 years before. We opted for a short harbor cruise on the New York Water Taxi leaving from Pier 16 this year because we had a child with us and she wanted to

    Was a bright day so great views. Went quite close to the statue and we had plenty of time to enjoy the view and take photos. Was icy cold so wrap up and be prepared for choppy waters! Would highly recommend.
