This 1929 vessel, built from native hardwoods, is New York City's only floating designated landmark. When the Gatsby-era ship's sails unfurl, sit back and enjoy the casually elegant atmosphere as this ocean-tested vessel glides comfortably through world-famous New York Harbor during the relaxing one hour and 30-minute ride. Your ticket includes a serving of beer, wine or choice of soft drink. Learn More

It was a beautiful day, the yacht is truly beautiful, very roomy, great staff, delicious brunch, with several courses (all yummy food from the Chelsea Market, including croissants, quiche, a delicious hame, fresh fruit, Fat Witch brownies and a waffle station), and a fantastic, relaxing cruise around the city. Will absolutely do it again, and soon, and it's worth it at full price, so these discounted tickets are far and away worth it.
