Overview
Cruise all the way around Manhattan Island on a guided boat tour that takes in every angle of New York City’s iconic waterfront. Traveling by boat means unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty—ideal for snapping memorable photographs. With live narration throughout the cruise, you’ll learn about the Big Apple while passing all five of New York’s boroughs.
What to Expect

Make your way to the Circle Line pier in Manhattan, which is easily reached from the Hudson River Greenway and the cruise terminal.

Your cruise begins on the Hudson River and starts to circle Manhattan Island, following a route that includes three rivers, seven bridges, and up-close views of the Statue of Liberty.

Settle into a comfortable seat and take in the views as your guide points out landmarks on the Manhattan waterfront. There are snacks and drinks available for purchase, too.

Spot the One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower, the distinctive outline of the Empire State Building, and then pull into New York Harbor to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. When you turn up the East River, you’ll cruise past Brooklyn and Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

The tour ends back on the Hudson River pier where you departed.

A week in New York

The circle line cruise around Manhatten was a high light. I urge any one who has the time to do this trip. I was amazed at how much I saw.

Great tour with lots of info!

Wrap up well as it’s cold on the water in December. That said, you get a great view of the island of Manhattan. Lots of chances to take photos and you get very close to the Statue of Liberty. Essential part of a NYC break.

We booked the night before, but it was not necessary since the boat was well under capacity. Given the cold weather in January, I would buy the tickets as you planned, just an hour prior.

Hi, Yes the pick up point is at Pier 83. You cannot miss it. There is a large building and they have about 8 boats. It is right next to the end of the Highline. Hope this is of help. Martyn
