New York City: Harbor Speedboat Tour

1. New York City: Harbor Speedboat Tour

Take a high-speed boat ride on the Hudson River narrated by our professional US Coast Guard licensed captains. See famous sites in and around New York Harbor. Get a perfect photo at each stop with special navigation from the captain. First, be greeted by your captain and checked in. After a short and mandatory safety briefing, you'll get suited up and board the boat. Take advantage of anti-exposure suits in the winter and windproof jackets in the spring and fall.   Next, depart from North Cove Marina and head out onto the Hudson River to get spectacular views of downtown and midtown with the Empire State and Chrysler buildings in view. Then, travel south around Battery Park and enter the East River. See the helicopters land and take off at the helipad. From here, cruise past South Street Seaport, go under the Brooklyn Bridge, and up to the Manhattan Bridge for a one-of-a-kind photo opportunity. After taking in the iconic views, cruise along the Brooklyn waterfront, the Red Hook Container Terminal, and past Governors Island. Crossing the Upper Bay, observe commercial vessels such as tug boats, oil barges, and the Staten Island Ferry. From here, stop right in front of the Statue of Liberty outside the security zone to get an up-close and unobstructed view of Lady Liberty. From there, travel north along the New Jersey waterfront and stop by Ellis Island. Finally, see the Colgate Clock and get great views of Midtown, Hudson Yards, the Highline, FDNY Fireboat Station, and Chelsea Piers. Listen to live narration at every stop and ask your guide questions about the sites before getting back to the marina.

What people are saying about New Jersey

Can not rate the boat ride highly enough! We were considering the helicopter- but this was far more exciting and tremendous value for money! Our guide was great company and very informative. All of the party were buzzing when they landed back on terra firma : it was the highlight of our trip!

This tour is brilliant. A great way to see New York from the water. The boat captain knew all the best photo opportunities and gave great details about what we weee seeing. Cannot recommended highly enough. The company were also advertising shorter tours from the pier

Was really a great moment. We can just recommend this company, really professional, a warm welcome, a great pilot that took time to stop the boat and explained us lot of details of what we were seeing and what we should not missed …. No negative point !

Overall, it was fast and fun, and the guide made us feel comfortable and safe. He was also full of fun anecdotes about New York City (and we live here!). Worth the cost.

If you want an experience you won’t forget in New York you must do this. MAGIC!
