See the Best of the New York Harbor Sites by Water

  • Wave hello to Lady Liberty, marvel at New York’s iconic bridges, and witness the towering One World Trade Center

    Departing from Highlands, NJ, we sail through Sandy Hook Bay, past Earl Naval Weapons Station, the tip of Sandy Hook, Romer Shoal, and West Bank lighthouses, Coney Island, under the spectacular Verrazzano Narrows Bridge, and up the Hudson River to Manhattan.  Once we enter New York harbor, we will head to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island for some amazing photo ops, then up the West Side of Manhattan, past the Battery, around the tip of Lower Manhattan, and finally arriving at the breathtaking Brooklyn Bridge.

  • Fun and relaxing, without the traffic or crowds.

    Kick back, relax, enjoy the warm evening breezes, and leave the driving to us.  There’s plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a cool beverage while taking in the city skyline.

  • Our vessels are well equipped with the comforts of home, but with a MUCH better view.

    We have plenty of spacious airline-style seating spanning across multiple decks. You can enjoy the view from the outside decks, or sit comfortably inside in the air-conditioned cabin. Onboard you’ll find amenities like satellite T.V., a well-equipped bar, and lots of leg-room, and all of our vessels are equipped with the right technology to make for a smooth ride.
