Get there early!

The trip was absolutely fine. Very informative and staff were welcoming. However, if you have booked on line, get there early to collect your tickets. We nearly missed our trip due to being in line for half an hour because of people purchasing tickets for other sailings We saw one couple complaining about the same thing to a staff member and they went straight to the desk. We followed suit. They should have a collection desk for prepaid tickets. They will only accept printed vouchers too.

Good experience and accomplished narrator, and the weathe was fine too

Boat left on time, we had coffee and hot dogs. Listened to the guide most of the time. Knowledgeable and humorous. Lots of interesting facts about the Manhattan shoreline. Good pics of the Statue as we approached, also the new World Trade Center, awesome. Overall, good value for the money. A highlight of our NYC break.
