Harbor Tour


Starting at 30 minutes for $39

See the famous New York City skyline in an incredible new way!

Sight-seeing on a RIB Boat is a spectacular experience. You are in an open boat, close to the water, feeling the wind blow and seeing the sky line of a fantastic city. You see so much more in a short time, and your adrenalin will be rushing through your system. Safe and exciting.

Our harbor tour begins at Pier 25 in Manhattan. Speed down the Hudson River and stop to circle the base of the historic Statue of Liberty. Nobody will bring you closer to the island, and we are the only ones that go around the Statue, so you will see her from every angle.

We will pass by Governor’s Island and enter the East River so you can see the Brooklyn Bridges. On our way back, we will hug the shore, and you will have a great view of Battery Park and the World Trade Center buildings.

With speeds reaching 50 miles/hour, there will be plenty of time to slow down for some photos!

Whether you are visiting or a native New Yorker, the tour is an unforgettable way to see the city like never before.
