Boat Tour Manhattan Island

Call to order 212-627-1825

Around Manhattan Join us and choose any boat tour of Manhattan Island that we have to offer! Step aboard one of our 1920s style beauties, the Manhattan & Manhattan II. Our yachts run several Manhattan Island Boat Tours that will circumnavigate the entire island of NYC. Cruise around NYC by boat and you will see all that this city has to offer with views of all the iconic landmarks we are known for.  Get stunning views of the Statue of Liberty and cruise with us under the amazing bridges. 

We built the Yacht Manhattan & Manhattan II low enough to fit under all 18 bridges around NYC.  They are also designed to give comfort and elegance to the groups that cruise within their cabins. Ride with us and enjoy the splendor of the City, from world-renowned architecture to the endless bridges. We also travel on the 3 historic waterways that outline her shores: The Hudson, East, and Harlem Rivers! Get up close with Lady Liberty and cruise by the World Trade Center and under the Brooklyn Bridge, all of which are perfect for snapping some amazing photos. 

Our boat rides are perfect for your out of town guests, native New Yorkers, and tourists alike.  We are not like the other sightseeing boat rides in NY Harbor, because we keep the capacity limited to create an intimate experience for you.  

Our Manhattan Island Boat Tours offer an Around Manhattan Brunch Cruise, Architecture, Historic and Bridge & Infrastructure Tours. All of these cruises depart from the historic Chelsea Piers, Pier 62.
