Our tours depart from North Cove Marina at Brookfield Place, adjacent to One World Trade Center. After a briefing on the dock, you'll board our safe and seaworthy US NAVY-designed boats. We’ll leave Manhattan and head out on the Hudson River to get spectacular views of downtown and midtown with the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. We run north to the Aviation Pier, the FDNY Fireboat Station, Chelsea Piers, and head for the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier and Cruise Ship Terminal, before turning south along the New Jersey shoreline. From Hoboken we cross back over to Manhattan and stop right in front of the Financial District and Freedom Tower. Rounding Battery Park, we enter the East River where you'll see the helicopters take-off and land as we cruise past South Street Seaport, go under the Brooklyn Bridge and to the Manhattan Bridge. After taking in the iconic views, we run along the Brooklyn waterfront, the Red Hook Container Terminal and around Governors Island. Crossing the Upper Bay you'll see commercial vessels such as tug boats, oil barges, and the Staten Island Ferry as we make our way to the Statue of Liberty. We stop right outside the security zone so you can get an up-close and unobstructed view of Lady Liberty. Returning to Manhattan, we pass Ellis Island, and you'll have great views of the entire world-famous NYC skyline. We hope to welcome you aboard!
Our tour is also available as a Private Charter.
