It was a beautiful day and the boat was wonderful....brunch was great as well. The only minor disappointment was that there was no narration of the tugboat activity taking place in front of us. No one on the boat had any idea what was happening...continued

Description

Join Classic Harbor Line for the 17th annual Tugboat Race on the Hudson River!

Tugboats are well known for their hard work, from tugging to pushing, guiding vessels and bringing us to safety! Today is the day for them! Come watch as these hard working vessels get to play for the day. With nose-to-nose pushing contests and line throwing competitions, this day is sure to be eventful!

Be a spectator of this annual event and see the tugboats as they make their way one nautical mile up north to Pier 84 from the 79th Street Boat Basin! Cheer on your favorite tugboat while enjoying a plentiful brunch spread, including freshly baked bagels, muffins, pastries, seasonal fruit, glazed ham, spring mix salad, stuffed quiches, waffle station with all the fixings, turkey sausage, spicy Bloody Marys, Mimosas, juices, coffee and tea.

On this three-hour cruise, you will see:

  • The 79th Street Boat Basin and a parade of Tugboats
  • The George Washington Bridge
  • The Empire State Building and Chrysler Building
  • Battery Park, South Street Seaport and the Financial District
