Best Statue of Liberty Cruise

The most basic 2-hour yacht tour New York is anything but common. Departing from the bustling heart of Chelsea Piers in Manhattan, cruise into the sparkling waters of the Hudson River where the adventure begins. Float past the Hudson River Greenway and Manhattan’s iconic neighborhoods — Meat Packing District, West Village, Tribeca, Financial District — before gliding into the middle of the New York Harbor. Here the sky opens up to provide stunning views of the city skyline as well as vistas stretching as far south as Staten Island as well as Brooklyn and New Jersey. Hold onto your hats as we twirl around world-famous landmarks – Ellis Island, Governors Island, Colgate Clock – and, of course, Lady Liberty herself. On these private boat tours in NYC, you can choose to pause and bask in glory of the Statue, or set your sights on the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge, or travel deeper south into the NY Harbor, or back up the Hudson River for a northern tour.

For those who prefer to skip the Statue and Brooklyn Bridge, 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. Private NYC boat tours let you experience the city up close and personal like never before.
