2-Hour Cruise: Chart Your Course on a New York Harbor Cruise Statue of Liberty

The most basic 2-hour NYC boat tour is anything but common. Departing from the bustling heart of Chelsea Piers in Manhattan, you’ll sail into the sparkling waters of the Hudson River where the adventure begins. As you follow the Hudson River Greenway, you’ll pass iconic neighborhoods like Tribeca and the Financial District, all leading to the grand New York Harbor. Here, the sky opens up, providing the perfect backdrop for stunning views of the city skyline. Hold onto your hats as we twirl around the harbor, catching sight of the iconic landmarks – from Ellis Island to Governors Island to special treats like the Colgate Clock – and, of course, Lady Liberty herself. On these private boat tours in NYC, you can choose to pause and bask in her glory or set your sights on the Brooklyn Bridge and sail up the East River.

For those who want to skip the statue and chart a course to a different destination, your charter is truly bespoke. Tell your captain your wishes and dreams and, in consultation with Mother Nature, the captain will safely navigate you through the waterways. Experience New York City up close and personal like never before.

3-Hour Cruise: Discover Hidden Gems with New York Boat Tours

Embark on a 3-hour private cruise through the magnificent waters of New York City. This is your classic 2-hour charter with more adventure and more sightseeing. Do you want an extra journey up the Hudson River to catch sight of the lush greenery of the Palisades and the grandeur of the George Washington Bridge? Or do you want to loop around the other side of Manhattan and discover the hidden gems of the East River like the charming Jane’s Carousel and the iconic UN Building? Or do you want to sail further south and meet the massive tanker ships as they arrive from the Atlantic Ocean? The freedom to pick your own experience is truly unique for a boat ride in NYC. Your personal odyssey is yours to create.

4 to 6-Hour Cruise: The Ultimate Yacht Cruise NYC

Get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey where your personal boat tour of NYC is centered on your desires. With a longer voyage, the possibilities are endless. A 3.5 and 4-hour charter will complete a full loop around the island of Manhattan, a comprehensive tour that provides a whole new perspective of the city. And if that’s not enough, 5-6 hour charters can take you north to the Hudson Valley, or east to Connecticut and the Long Island Sound, or south under the Verrazano Bridge and into the Atlantic Ocean with views of Coney Island and the Jersey Shore. Or for those needing premier flexibility, reserve the yacht for the day and come and go at your leisure. Get ready for a luxury adventure where the sky is the limit.
