This tour is a great way to see the best parts of New York City from the water. Once we set off from shore, we will circle the island of Manhattan, seeing the Statue of Liberty, the Randall's Island High Bridge, Columbia University, Harlem, Gracie Mansion, the South Street Seaport, the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, the Cloisters, Grant's Tomb, and the Little Red Lighthouse. After we circle the island, the tour will come to an end. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.

Please Note: If there is ice in the water, the cruise will not be going around the full island and it will be subject to actual situations.
