Leave the hustle and bustle of Big Apple behind for a relaxing cruise. More than just a boat ride, the classic 1920s-style vessel Manhattan provides great views as it circles lower New York, passes by Governors Island, closely approaches the Statue of Liberty, glides under the Brooklyn Bridge and sails past the historic South Street Seaport on its 90-minute excursion. Admission includes one beer, wine, champagne, soda or water to enjoy as you take in the sights from the outdoor or climate-controlled observatory decks. Learn More
