The Beast was brilliant, the weather was miserable but we had a great time. Fabulous way of seeing Liberty up close. Crew were great and really looked after us. Really recommended!

The beast ride was great. We saw the Statue of Liberty upclose. The staff took photos for us. We definitely bought tickets as something fun to do with our 8 year old but all enjoyed it.

We had a great experience on The Beast today! Tickets were really reasonable and we booked online a day in advance. We arrived 30 mins early, as requested, and the boat went promptly at 11am. The guides were great, the music was great, the scenery was great! This is a really fun and unusual way to see the sights (Statue of Liberty and the skyline etc). We loved it and would recommend it to anyone wanting something different in NYC!

My daughter booked this for us and I loved it. You see the Statue of Liberty close up and also get a fast power boat ride too. Will probably book again when I next go.

I can easily say that the beast was one of the best attractions that we paid to do while visiting NYC! The boat we were on wasn’t busy so plenty of room to choose where you wanted to sit. the guys do a fantastic job and make it so fun, while pointing out the top highlights in Manhattan and New Jersey along the way. We also got some great photos at the Statue of Liberty from the water. Highly recommend this, fast speedboat journey that shows you the epic New York skyline!! We just showed up at the dock half an hour before and purchased tickets but you can buy them online too and buy packages.
