Our Route

We’ll leave Manhattan and head out on the Hudson River to get spectacular views of downtown and midtown with the Empire State and Chrysler buildings. Going north on the Hudson you'll see, the FDNY Fireboat Station,

Chelsea Piers, the VIP Heliport,

Hudson Yards Project, The

Highline and the Jacob Javits Convention Center before stopping at the

Intrepid Aircraft Carrier and

Cruise Ship Terminal. We then cross over to the New Jersey shoreline and run south for panoramic views of the entire skyline. From

Hoboken we cross back over to Manhattan and stop right in front of the

Financial District and

Freedom Tower. Rounding

Battery Park, we enter the East River where you'll see the helicopters take-off and land, as we cruise past

South Street Seaport, go under the

Brooklyn Bridge and to the

Manhattan Bridge. After taking in the iconic views, we run along the

Brooklyn waterfront, past the Red Hook Container Terminal and around

Governors Island. Crossing the Upper Bay you'll see commercial vessels such as tug boats, oil barges, and the Staten Island Ferry while making our way to the

Statue of Liberty. We stop right outside the security zone so you can get an up-close and unobstructed view of Lady Liberty. Returning to Manhattan, we pass

Ellis Island, and you'll have great views of the entire world-famous

NYC downtown skyline. We hope to welcome you aboard!

At each of our 12 tour stops the captain positions the boat so that every guest can get a perfect photo and will help guests with any photo requests.
