Sit in the back row! That's the splash zone. And hold on to your hats and sunglasses - this tour really puts the "speed" in "speedboat". It's a nice touch that the boat driver idles at the Statue of Liberty so people can take their photos. Then all the sudden you're speeding back to the piers! It's quick, fun way to get out on the water and get some excellent shots of the statue and skyline.
