We booked the private NYC boat tour for my brothers 30th birthday. It was a great experience and a unique way to view the city! I had never seen the statue of liberty before up close and was so excited to get a front seat view. Other people in the boat had gone to the island and said that the experience was much better from the boat :) The driver was very knowledgeable and had fun with the group! I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to see the sights. Also great photo opportunities too!

Thank you Brook for the great review! I couldn’t agree more, seeing the Statue of Liberty aboard NYCbySEA provides much better views than actually being on Liberty Island! Thank you again and look forward to having you back out on the water again! Best, Mike

Michael was very knowledgeable and very courteous. He took us around the harbor and we saw alot of beautiful spots. He took his time to take lots of photos for us which is so important to most travelers. It was quite the experience. Seeing the statue of liberty from up close was awesome, i recommend this tour.

Simple,private,luxury-----this is the one. NYC by Sea makes 'sightseeing' feel like your own personal trip along the Hudson. No tourist crowds or long waits, just step aboard. The captains are full of NYC knowledge and kind enough to take lot of photos of you!!
