Get up close and personal with the NYC skyline, including the Statue of Liberty, from the water, and enjoy cool breezes in the bargain, on the only sightseeing boat that offers a hop-off-hop-on option. NYC harbor cruises are a must do for visitors, and this half-price deal makes it a great summer option for residents, too.
Be sure to bring your camera for the 90-minute trip around Lower Manhattan, aboard New York Water Tours’ Liberty Cruise to see prime views of all the major sights from its open or enclosed decks.
Licensed guides offer interesting facts and historical perspectives as you pass by Lady Liberty — arguably the most famous statue in the world — as well as the new World Trade Center, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, Battery Park, Wall Street and the South Street Seaport.
You’ll circle all these breathtaking sights twice for excellent photo ops before returning to the dock. You can hop off at Pier 79, at 40th Street on the Hudson River, and hop on again to return to Slip 5 on the East River.
Half-price tickets are $16-30 for any available date through September 1st.
