our experience was ok. not worth $ 45, so thanks goldstar. it just goes to the statue of liberty and back. it does not even get close to the brooklyn bridge. once is enough i do not need to do it again.

Perfect weather. Low-key way to get a different vantage point of lower Manhattan without feeling so "touristy". Great way to be reminded that NYC is on the water. Friendly down to earth crew.

Staff was very accommodating. However, the ship traveled only as far as the Statue of Liberty and back. In 90 minutes we could have gone to the Verrazano Bridge, Red Hook... continued

The crew was great; friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. The day was perfect; clear, sunny, and just enough wind.

The ride itself was very pleasant, unfortunately, we were under motor power for much of the ship which was not what I had expected. The crew was pleasant and the complimentary drink a nice surprise!

The tour seemed kind of short to me and i wish we could've seen the Brooklyn Bridge more upfront, but overall it was a nice and relaxing boat ride. You get to have a pretty good view of Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty

This is a lovely outing . -- a low key capable crew, and a serene experience on our busy river in the heart of our financial hub. We were lucky to have had perfect weather, but the sail would be fun even in less ideal conditions.
