“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Did a yacht trip around the harbour for a friend's birthday and it was simply stunning. Great to get right up close to the Statue of Liberty without fighting the crowds queuing at Battery Park, and a bit of a step up from the good ole Staten Island Ferry! Fantastic harbour to float around no matter what vessel you're on though and fab views of Manhattan from the water.

“Motor Boatin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Took the Staten Island Ferry to and from the island. Harbor was easily navigated and escorted by Coast Guard security to and from. Harbor was clean and the ferry was well maintained.

“Fantastic View with the skyline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Coming to NY, I totally recommend that you do a cruise/ferry on the Harbor to really enjoy looking back at the City. Alternatively, hop a train over to NJ or Brooklyn for fantastic harbor & city views.

“Get a boat tour to really enjoy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

If you really want to appreciate the harbor then grab a boat tour and really appreciate the city while finding out some amazing information about the city and the waterfront and also getting a great view of the statue of Liberty.
