Don't Ever Go With These Guys! Horrible Experience!!!!
Gary_J, Jan 2023
Never use this company. I had a New York NYE family party of 9 that was cancelled 1 hour before due to fog. I understand the fog issue, but 1 hour before with no information on how to get my refund of over $300! No nothing! The lady had an attitude and said it's not her problem and that I needed to call the 3rd party company in Florida to find out the process for my refund. Never again!!!
Not bad
Mahith_V, Jan 2023
Not bad... If you have more time go for the 3 hr trip. hardly heard the guide talking about the place.
Great trip

Great tour! Booked last minute. The boat is way bigger than it looks. Got a great view of the statue if liberty.
Felt unsafe and overcrowded
Robin_D, Dec 2022
Too crowded and unsafe, not a life jacket in sight. An accident waiting to happen. Over booked, no where to sit or hold on to.
Old boat
Pavlos_C, Dec 2022
the ship arrived too late. A very old ship that you only meet in third world countries. It is a shame to have tours with such ships in New York. We are in 2022 if we don't remember and we are humans and not animals.
The boat is very old and...
Anthony_G, Dec 2022
The boat is very old and needs work. Dirty windows made it difficult to enjoy the views. Staff was ok but a little edgy and not welcoming. Would suggest another cruise line.
Might be worth the cheap price
RiyaUmesh_B, Dec 2022
The windows were very unclear and stained. Couldn’t see a thing through the windows and could barely hear the guide.

Statue of Liberty. All the sights were great views. Friendly staff. The music was a good touch. Recommend this tour to anyone visiting.
Crazy boat trip
BORIS_K, Nov 2022
We had nice time but it was too crowded on boat , was not enough spot for all people to sit or make pictures
Great experience overall
Minesh_S, Oct 2022
Experience was great, the tour was fantastic, the person clicking pics was awesome, - just need a little better instructions on where to go exactly- pier 36 has a lot of docks- some details on where exactly to go would b helpful- but the people were nice and the experience is great!
Worst Family experience!
Caryn_H, Oct 2022
Horrible experience!! Go there on time! Waited in like for over 40 mins . The boats engine died right before everyone boarded and they didn’t have another boat. No one told anyone anything and we all sat there . No boat ever came! Then when I tried to get a refund the lad was beyond rude and hung up on me twice!
Below expectations
Anand_S, Sep 2022
The narrator was not very clear, I did not understand which building she was speaking about most of the time. She was not always audible, either.
Good tour! One thing that...
Robert_P, Sep 2022
Good tour! One thing that should be mentioned that the boat slip you need to arrive to is #3 on Pier 36. And lineup ahead of time if you want to be near a railing to see out.
Unforgettable experience
Abdiel_D, Aug 2022
Amazing experience and views of the city. I will definitely do it again. I recommend this to anyone coming to Manhattan.
Never again
Sarah_K, Aug 2022
The cruise was 20min. late, so all of the people on the line was sweating under the beating sun. The boat was also crowded. There was not enough room for people to have a safe distance from each other and not many people were wearing masks. Also, the waters must've been choppy because the boat was rocking so much that my family were getting headaches. Thank goodness it was a short ride or we would've gotten seasick.
Old, smelly boat, nowhere...
Kimberly_C, Aug 2022
Old, smelly boat, nowhere to sit outside and music too loud. Would not recommend. There are far better cruises in the city
Stephanie_M, Jul 2022
The whole experience was great, the food was good, the tour guide was knowledgeable. It was well worth it
Wonderful experience!
Melanie_N, Jul 2022
My son and I had a wonderful experience on the cruise! There were a lot of sites to view and the staff were super nice!
Eh! We got to see the Statue of Liberty
Jarrod_W, Jul 2022
Lackluster. Late departure and early back. Staff wasn’t super friendly Company first had us scheduled on a sale boat then canceled the day before and moved us to this boat. Very different experience I assume.
Fun Times !
Chris_S, Jul 2022
It was a really nice way to see the City from the water and out family had a great time! Would recommend this to anyone who wants to see NY from the water .
