    What a delightful experience! My friends and I had a blast on the Sunset & Holiday Cocoa Cruise. We wanted to celebrate with one another before we all flew around the country and went home for the holidays.

It was a magical evening that put us all in the holiday spirit. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a festive and fun outing with friends!

  • Very affordable and amazing sights.
    A very different experience for us since this was our first time to New York and to experience it during the holidays was amazing. What a way to see the N.Y. skyline and the Statue of Liberty than from a 1.5 hour cruise while on a 1920 yacht. The cruise was very intimate and was great meeting other people. Thank you for this experience.

  • Great Views with a Wonderfully Festive Twist
    I bought this trip for myself and my wife for the expected views of NYC, but was gladly surprised at the festive feeling the trip delivered. As expected the NYC sights at sunset were breathtaking (so was the air temperature too mind!!) but the atmosphere on board made the trip A+ recommendation of things to do in NYC. You can drink as much cocoa and eat as many cookies as you wish and your given your first alcoholic drink free. If you do wish to brave the cold and sit outside then blankets are provided. The trip lasts 90mins and takes in all the river views of NYC and even stops just next to Liberty Island for a 5-10min photo opportunity. We’ll both HIGHLY recommend this trip for anyone that wishes to have a bit of festive cheer/sanctuary during the madness of Christmas in NYC.

  • Winter wonderland on the Hudson
    The crew was friendly and efficient and the boat was lovely. Seeing Lady Liberty lit up at night in the harbour makes you realize how incredibly beautiful she is. Dress warmly if you want to sit outside.
