Perfect start to our trip sunset was beautiful. Take a layer as it can get a bit chilly as the evening goes on. Got up close to the Statue of Liberty too, got some great photos from the trip.

Bad experience
Jurrich_S, Sep 2023
In the confirmation email a wrong location was given to us with the result that we were unable to be on time at the location of the sailing yacht. We were asked to send the confirmation to the ticket office and we also waked to this location. When arrived at location we we're only offered the cruise of 8:00pm because we miss understood the email address that was given to us on the phone the email didn't arrived on time. The 8:00pm cruise is not exactly yhe same as a sun set cruise over the Hudson. What I really do not understand is that in the email it says you need to go to an address that is almost 2 hours walking from the location where you take the yacht. Unbelievable! Having said this the guys on the yacht were very friendly.

Hello Jurrich, Thank you for booking a cruise with us and taking some time to share your experience. We are very sorry that you were given directions to the wrong location. We have spent many hours investigating the cause of this issue, and it turns out that there was a glitch with Viator that was resetting the location for this tour only on pages that were translated to foreign languages, so it was difficult to identify. It took several weeks and many different teams to troubleshoot this error, but the glitch has now been resolved, and future bookings should have the correct location information. We have followed up with Viator to make sure that you have been refunded. Please reach out to us at if you would like to discuss any of this further or if you are interested in joining us for another cruise. We would be happy to help with that, and we hope that you will be able to enjoy a great cruise when it works for you! Warmly, Classic Harbor Line

Sunset Cruise
Julie_N, Jul 2023
This was a great evening cruise. I booked it because it looked less crowded than some of the other evening boat trips and it was very relaxing even though it was more expensive. The captain and her crew made us very welcome with very clear advice about the facilities and the safety aspects of the trip. They checked that we were enjoying ourselves and took our photo in front of the Statue of Liberty.
