Hop aboard your boat from Pier 83 on the west side of Manhattan. Your 60-minute cruise takes you down the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty before turning back. Along the way, learn about the sites and New York’s history from an informative guide on board, and keep your camera out and ready.

Get a prime vantage point of the majestic Statue of Liberty, as your captain pulls up within 100 feet (30 meters) of the monument. Pass by Ellis Island and learn about its historic role in American immigration. Set your sights on One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at a height of 1,776 feet (541 meters). Sail past the World Financial Center (renamed Brookfield Place in 2014 after renovations), home to corporation giants like Merrill Lynch, RBC Capital Markets and American Express.

Snap plenty of photos of iconic sites during the cruise, and if you’d like snacks or drinks, food and beverages are available for purchase right on the boat.

Loved this cruise! We went on a Monday morning cruise and got to take advantage of the discount pricing. It was only about 20 per person. The duration was an hour which was just the right amount of time. The views were spectacular. And the tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant to listen to. The weather was nice on the day we went so the bow was open. However, while out on the bow, it was hard to hear the tour guide so you'll have to decide - the great views or the great facts. I can imagine the boat is probably really crowded on the weekends so if you can, I would recommend going on a weekday so you don't have to worry about making your way through the crowd to get a good view. Another plus - there's a little café inside on the first level serving food and drinks, and a bar on the top level.

Wow - this 60 minute cruise was just perfect. We arrived 30 minutes before departure and had great seats on the open deck as the sun was shining. We sailed on the Hudson river down to the Statue of Liberty and had a fantastic view and also had lots of opportunities for taking photos! The tour guide on the boat provided lots of interesting information would certainly recommend this tour.
