This experince was FANTASTIC and I would highly recommend. The way the Yacht is set up you still have your own private area. Customer service, excellent! We LOVED it. I will do this again when I visit NYC.

Jacob was great! He took our pictures and truly made our 16 year anniversary celebration super special and a great memory for now and years to come! If there is any recognition award, cash incentive, bonus, etc this worker should receive it!

Something cute to do
Krystal_R, May 2023
I went with my boyfriend for his birthday. Cute experience. The complimentary drinks are basic wines and lagers but they do offer a full bar for purchase. Would do it again and would recommend to locals or those traveling.
The Little Cruise Boat That Could!
Julia_C, Apr 2023
Outstanding cruise around lower Manhattan. The Captain and crew couldn't have been nicer or more attentive. The rain and fog put a damper on picture taking but I didn't see anyone let it dampen their mood.
Anthony_R, Apr 2023
I took my wife for her birthday and we both loved it! Everything was intimate and you got some great shots of the city. Everything was well done. From the great staff, drinks I couldn’t say anything bad. I would recommend this to everyone and would like to do it again sometime down the road.
Fantastic Experience & Great Boat
Laura_L, Apr 2023
Loved the comfort of the boat and the crew was really nice. Only additional thing to add to this trip is a bit of narration or naming points of interests to passengers.
PAWAN_K, Apr 2023
I had to buy a separate ticket for my baby on lap at the counter, i was told there was no ticket for infants

Relaxation and amazing views
Adam_B, Apr 2023
We had the most relaxing time on our sunset cruise. Amazing views, comfortable boat, not crowded, low key, light jazz music in the background, friendly staff, good cocktails and light fare options. So glad we did this. 90 minutes to just relax and unwind. Definitely recommend.
Beautiful Sunset Cruise with Family
Heather_T, Apr 2023
Up close view of the Statue of Liberty, beautiful sunset, skyline of downtown lights and the ride under Brooklyn Bridge were all incredible memories made with my family.
Memorable experience!

Wonderful evening
Erin_D, Apr 2023
Trip was lovely, great boat and great staff. Really nice way to see the skyline and Statue of Liberty. We had two teenagers with us and they also enjoyed themselves. We would do this again.
Perfect night relaxing on Hudson
Fredric_C, Feb 2023
Enjoying my wife’s birthday with my family was a outstanding experience and will definitely return. Whole different experience seeing the sky line from the river crew was on point and very welcoming.
A must do for any trip to NY
Kirsty_F, Feb 2023
Fantastic sunset cruise, great photo opportunities under the Brooklyn bridge, up close to the Statue of Liberty and back along the Hudson to see the city come alive at night. The tables are well spaced, lots of space outside for photos and a bar available for drinks and snacks. A must for any trip to NY!
Great boat ride on a beautiful smaller cruise boat. Everyone has an opportunity to take their pictures.
Kayla_H, Nov 2022
The boat is really nice and comfortable. Don’t leave your drinks unattended, they will fall over! The attendants are very nice and pictures come out great.
NYC sunset cruise
Christina_D, Oct 2022
I loved everything about this trip! from the drink options, to the view, to the hospitality, it was a wonderful evening! We definitely picked the perfect time of 5:15, because we got to see NYC during the day, with a sunset, and at night! There was also not a bad seat on the boat, which i feel like is very rare! would DEFINITELY take this trip again!
