My boyfriend and I had an amazing afternoon cruising through the Hudson and East River. Captain Dave was very knowledgeable and attentive. His boat was very clean. The site was easy to find. We got great shots. Would definitely recommend this tour.

What a perfect way to see the sights! Price was so reasonable for a small private tour with great views of iconic landmarks. So much better than being herded onto a larger crowded boat! David was a terrific host. He continually checked on all guests...More

The easiest part of the excursion was purchasing the tickets, or so I thought. After buying the tickets for the harbor cruise where I also purchased the ferry tickets, I set off across on the ferry to the departure of the harbor cruise. Good thing...More

I highly recommend including this as an alternative to the standard ferry offerings for the Harbor. This far exceeded my expectations. Dave is a great host and ensured the experience was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to it again at next visit.
