Felicia_J, Jan 2023
We were very close to the Statue of Liberty!!! Nice smooth ride, not too crowded… the music was loud enough and the selections were on point. The staff was helpful and courteous.
Fantastic boat ride for cheap
TAIWO_F, Jan 2023
This is a fantastic boat trip to say the least, the boat took us to some key important places in NY! I would recommend this

It was okay. I went with my sister and friends. 1 hour is enough. The guide was super nice and we took nice pictures.

The ferry was cancelled because of bad weather and i got charged for it, i still haven’t gotten my refund and the owner does not answer calls or reply to email. Its a total fraud, i lost 100 dollars because of it.
It was pretty good
Constace_B, Jan 2023
It was a great experience it was a little crowded because they over booked but over all it was pretty good nothing was really that bad I do wish that they had not over booked it so it could have been more enjoyable
Your cancelled and didn’t get refund
Nicole_K, Jan 2023
Thd tour was cancelled due to fog. No one reached out, we wasted our time and money to get to the pier. I asked for a refund and no one ever got back to me, just kept sending me emails about my experience. So here is my experience. Give me a refund.
Don't waste your time. Not what is advertised.
Adelina_B, Jan 2023
Don't waste your time. Our booking was for 10:30. There was no signage to help direct a crew member didn't even show up until 10:50 and was very rude. This trip was completely false advertising and if you value schedules and service don't book here.
Ya you'll see the statue like all the other providers and probably on a better quality vessel as well.
the view was amazing....
Kevin_M, Dec 2022
the view was amazing. just a little overcrowded but was expected for the time. Right before new years.
Sharon_S, Dec 2022
The boat was overbooked and left before hundreds of us were left in line. No one could tell us what the next steps were. The boat was so packed it looked like it would sink. No instructions on which dock space was the boat we bought tickets for.
No spaces to stand or...

maryroser, Dec 2022
Lined up early, super long wait-prior boat got in late and deboarding took awhile. The bartender was miserable. Out of hot cocoa. I asked about the champagne, ate said it was real champagne, then poured me Andre lol. Oh well, fun experience overall.
Not great for kids
Jessica_R, Dec 2022
It was overcrowded and not ideal for kids. It was very hard for the kids to see the sights. There was a lot of pushing and shoving.
juan_c, Dec 2022

The cruise was a great experience. Trip was the perfect length which enabled us to see several sights in a short period of time.
