      This was a great tour of lower part of the Island and Statue of Liberty! The crew was so fun and festive!
      Rachel_H, Jan 2024
      Incredible trip, me and my sons (14yo & 18 yo) loved it. Warm, welcoming and very hospitable. Would definitely recommend and do again.
      Xmas Yacht Experience was Superb!
      Zee_A, Dec 2023
      My husband's first trip to NYC. The staff was friendly and snacks and drinks offered were excellent. One staff member named Kera was kind enough to snap photos of us as we passed the Statue of Liberty and around the Xmas tree. We also loved the information & history they provided as we boated around the city of NYC. I would def recommend this experience over a ferry ride if possible!!!
      Great family time

      My husband and I really enjoyed this cruise. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The boat was beautifully decorated and created such a unique atmosphere. Sightseeing on the outside deck was a real treat. It was probably our favorite part of our weekend trip.

      Beautiful 1920’s boat upgraded and well-maintained. The captain and staff were very nice. It’s right at Chelsea Piers, so plenty to do if you get there early.
      Great holiday outing
      Lori_D, Dec 2022

      Price convenient for comfortable and intimacy
      Judith_C, Nov 2022
      This boat ride was awesome! We went during Thanksgiving weekend and it was so intimate and convenient. This was the perfect way to see the Statue of Liberty and the city -It's not crowded, you have your own seating/ section, you can stay inside or hang out outside the boat, and you can drink! My husband has done other crowded touristic boats and he said this one was the best. Highly recommend, just dress warm! We even had a quick drink and salad right outside our meeting area which was convenient before we got on. Pluuuus, they give you your first drink free so all in all great price for such an intimate comfortable setting.
