We gave a $10.00 and it was well worth it. Most people were much cheaper.
The weather was It was warm on the Hudson and windy and cool on the East River. . I wore A short sleeve shirt on the Hudson River and a jacket on the East River. .
Park in lot at pier 61. There aren’t signs for ‘yacht Manhattan’ so look for ‘spirit/bateaux’. $44 for three hours. It’s a couple hundred feet to the boat.
If you're coming by public transportation, leave plenty of time to come crosstown on the bus!
The weather was a bit windy, but it was in fact Mid March...!. I wore I wore a sweater but the cabin of the boat was very cozy....didn't even need a sweater .
We took the #7 subway to Hudson Yards and walked the High Line down to 22nd Street...Worked out great ......!
The weather was Cold, rainy. I wore Layers. Can’t overdo. Made this trip enjoyable .
Try and sit on the left-hand side of the boat for the best Manhattan views. First drink is free. The buffet snack was excellent.
The weather was Mild. I wore Jeans, jacket & flat shoes .
Do not park at the Pier since the rates are ridiculous. Several parking lots on the eastern side of the highway can provide more reasonable rates.
The other ships were not as nice and more crowded.
We were at a restaurant and running out of time so asked to take our food to go- the boat allows food to be brought on board
It's a smaller vessel than most of the other boat/cruise trips available, which makes it a more intimate experience that we thoroughly enjoyed, but the downside is that if you are prone to seasickness, then beware, because you will feel a lot more of the waves, especially from the wakes of others.
Statue and Skyline Sightseeing Cruise
Not a boat where you have a meal, but it's only about an hour and a half.
Full bar. Only cheese plate or hummus dip available to purchase.
The weather was partly cloudy, windy and chilly. I wore a sweater and jacket for outside on the deck..
