Make your December in New York City memorable by cruising with your close family, friends & team members on 1920s style yachts decked out in holiday décor. Our motor yachts Manhattan and Manhattan II are heated and have newly installed HEPA air filtration systems. Your group will have an assigned private table inside and deck viewing zone outside spaced for social distancing best practices on each of our excursions. The private tables are elegantly divided by Plexiglass and feature a 360 view of the iconic Manhattan skyline from large windows and grand skylights.  

We offer three holiday excursions to choose from: Statue & Skyline Holiday Cocoa Cruise, the Sunset & Holiday Cocoa Cruise and New York City Lights Holiday Cocoa Cruise starting in November and running throughout December.  

These winter cruises will continue to honor the 50% limited capacity required, to insure you have a safe holiday cruise or a private holiday party this winter season.
