Got some great views, there was a tour guide on the microphone who gave lots of interesting facts (and was pretty funny!) and they made sure they slowed down and turned the boat around so that everyone could get a good picture of the Statue...More
Fun, fast, inexpensive way to get around... Cost was $37 I found a promo code online that gave 20% off making it only $29.60 per person. The code was NYLESS. Never had to wait in line to get on the boat. They had two boats...More
The Times Square location of this boat is in fact 20 minutes walk down 42nd Street but once on board the trip is good and well guided. The timetable is flexible and in September only one boat was operating at 70 minute plus round trip...More
Had a good time. There was some wait at the pier and confusion as to what line to stand in( water taxi was clearly marked, other was not). We got great pictures of the Staue of Liberty and the bridges. The guide gave out good...More
I really enjoyed this experience. Seems like all the harbor cruises take you the same route, but on this one, tour guide David shared interesting info about the five boroughs, and what we were seeing from the boat. He told me things I hadn’t heard...More
They told us to get on the wrong boat, then dropped us at Brooklyn Army Terminal (middle of nowhere) told us to wait for the next boat to get us to where we needed to go. Wait was suppose to be 10 mins...that boat skipped...More

Practical and fast way to get from Time Square area (Midtown main port/departure) to downtown Manhattan. On the way see beautiful skyline and Statue of Liberty, It is not a cruise tour, this boat has speed and water can be rough at times. With the...More
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
Yes the view of the skyline from here is amazing!! Definitely my favorite pictures I took my whole trip. Great view of the island of Manhattan, as well as the Statue of Liberty. If you go in the afternoon when the sun is... More
Yes the view of the skyline from here is amazing!! Definitely my favorite pictures I took my whole trip. Great view of the island of Manhattan, as well as the Statue of Liberty. If you go in the afternoon when the sun is hitting the buildings it’s quite stunning. I would highly recommend going on some sort of boat. Also, the guide gave a lot of interesting historical info I never would have known otherwise.
The trips are short and pretty steady. When they pass the wake of another boat you feel some up and down movements but I think the captain tries to avoid it. Did you call Water Taxi directly if they'll refund if you... More
The trips are short and pretty steady. When they pass the wake of another boat you feel some up and down movements but I think the captain tries to avoid it. Did you call Water Taxi directly if they'll refund if you discontinue after one leg?
