Full description
Tour New York Harbor in the Beast, a jet powered, custom-built, 70-foot, off shore racing power boat that bursts with energy as it leaves all others in its wake! Your captain will take you up to speeds of 45mph on a spin down to the Statue of Liberty. It's New York's very own thrill ride, a wet n' wild adventure through New York Harbor that will require you to hold onto your hat for 30 fun-filled minutes. You will soar past the city’s legendary skyline and skyscrapers at a heart-pounding rate.

The Beast was such good fun, speeding through the water, music blaring out. You will get wet, but if the sun is shining who cares. If you want to party it’s the ride for you, if not take the Circle cruise line. Having done both, it’s the Beast fir be every time

An incredible experience. You get to witness all of New York's breathtaking scenery, enhanced by the fast speed of the boat. The music played only adds to the energetic atmosphere, as well as the charismatic tour guides. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the other boats on the river seemed boring in comparison. A must-have experience for all tourists - awe-inspiring!

Absolutely amazing - if you get the opportunity, do it! It’s so much fun the guys who run it are brilliant too.. My only negative is that I booked it through GetYourGuide for a specific time & date around our schedule, 2pm on the 1/7/19, however, when we got there 45 mins before (like stated) to exchange our tickets the guy told us that the next available slot wasn’t until 5pm, which was quite irritating, he got us onto a boat the next day at a more convenient time, it is in the terms & conditions but so far down & so hidden, maybe it should be advertised as ‘flexible ticket’ as it says 90 days after it’s been purchased it can be used.
