I cannot recommend the Sunset Cruise highly enough. Three of us, all seasoned travelers, thought it was almost a 'transformative' experience. We had excellent fall weather - but it would have been aa amazing any time. You cannot beat the scenery or the experience. The boat is perfect - a retro design, but all brand new and built with beautiful woods. It's an inspiring way to see the City - and one of the great harbors of the world. The crew are first class in every way. Tell the crew thanks for a truly magical experience!

Fantastic enthusiastic crew, not real Champagne

The experience was exceptionally good we were really well looked after by the amazing crew. Unfortunately I was expecting a sailing boat so was slightly disappointed when I saw the boat. And I was dismayed to find that the Champagne was cheep slightly fizzy wine which I believe is false advertising. So if you know what to expect, overall it was fantastic, the views of the manhattan sky line and the statue of liberty were breath-taking.

Amazing Views

We’ve done this cruise of the harbor twice and had a great experience although very different vibe with each trip. In August on a warm Saturday night the book was filled to capacity, had live music and a fun crowd celebrating various occasions. Last October there were far fewer people, temperature was much cooler, and the crowd was mostly couples relaxing. The views are spectacular. The sunset can be romantic or an opportunity for fun selfies with your BFF. We highly recommend this high quality, good value excursion.
