Best New York City Cruises
This summer has brought us some pretty insufferable heat. And while it’s supposed to get milder, there’s still plenty of time to enjoy a refreshing breeze and a cold cocktail on one of NYC’s finest cruises.
Circle Line Sightseeing
New York’s quintessential cruise company, Circle Line Sightseeing, operating out of 42nd Street’s pier 83 offers a variety of exciting sightseeing cruises. From the thrilling speedy Beast Speedboat ride to the 3-hour Best of NYC cruise that takes you around the entire island, there’s plenty to choose from for everybody. Try the popular Harbor Lights Cruise for amazing evening-time views or the new Hello Brooklyn Tour for a closer look at the up-and-coming borough.
Clipper City Tall Ship
This lovely, vintage sail boat takes you on a serene, 90 minute ride around the Statue of Liberty, offering spectacular views of the Downtown Manhattan skyline and up-close views of the statue. The boat is equipped with a bar and the staff recruits some lucky passengers to help pull the ropes and steer the rudder. The tour is not narrated, which gives you opportunity to have a quiet afternoon at sea, contemplating. Clipper City departs at 2:15pm and 4:30pm for daytime sails and at 9:30pm for night time sail.
Shearwater Classic Schooner
A second sail cruise offered by Manhattan by Sail (operator of Clipper City) is a true winner. The Gatsby-era schooner offers a serene, breezy sail will make you feel like a million bucks while you enjoy the waves, the wind and a refreshing beverage on the 82 foot double-masted yacht. The Daytime Statue Sail departs at 12:30pm and 2:45pm Monday-Friday.
New York Water Taxi
New York City taxi cab, in water. Enough said. In case you need more, New York Water Taxi makes three stops along the coast of Manhattan and two in Brooklyn. There’s simply no better way to cross the river, or get Downtown from Hell’s Kitchen than on a boat. With the New York Pass, you get a free All Day Access Pass to enjoy seamless commuting in style.
Whether you want to impress your significant other with a romantic dinner, or some clients with a spectacular power lunch, Spirit Cruises has you covered. The luxury yacht departs from Chelsea Piers and will take you around Downtown Manhattan, which will dazzle you with majestic skyscrapers making up the amazing skyline view. The New York Pass offers $10 off dinner cruises and $5 off lunch cruises.
