Harbor Lights Cruise

Experience the bright lights of New York City on this cruise to see the nighttime skyline. Sail down the Hudson and around the tip of the island, up the East River and back while knowledgeable tour guides narrate the night. Enjoy the peace of the city's waterways at night and learn about the New York while cruising like a VIP around the city that never sleeps.

New York City can't be better than it is on this tour from the River. You'll see the USS Intrepid Pier, Hoboken Pier, Pier 54 (the Titanic Pier), Newport Center, Javits Center, Battery Park, The Museum of Jewish Heritage, Ellis Island, Wall Street, South Street Seaport and Museum, the Brooklyn Bridge, Chrysler Building, and so much more as you sail around the southern half of New York City.

Cruise past history when you see Pier 54, the former Cunard Line pier. When the Titanic sank, the RMS Carpathia scooped up survivors and brought them to safety at this famed pier. Sail around Battery Park, a 25 acre park that sits at the tip of Manhattan. Named for the artillery batteries that stood on this spot to protect New York in its early days, Battery Park is now a part of the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, 32 mile long stretch of walking and biking trails that circle the island. See the Brooklyn Bridge, an icon in the skyline of New York, and cruise past its beautiful architecture, lit up at night to highlight this National Historic Landmark, opened in 1903. Gaze at the Chrysler Building at night, lit up against the sky. Ooh and aah at the glittering lights of Wall Street and South Street Seaport.

There's no better way to see this amazing city than on this tour around the river at night. Bring your friends, bring your family, and bring a camera. This is the Big Apple at its best.

We really enjoyed this cruise. The guide was most informative and we managed to take some lovely photographs of NYC by night.

My husband and I enjoyed the Harbor Lights Cruise. I got to take a lot of good photos of New York. How ever I found out when I got there that I could have bought the tickets there for $40. It seems that buying your tickets now did not guarantee me a spot on the boat. After waiting in a long line the guy in the booth told me he had to check with is supervisor to see if there were any tickets left for the cruise. I did get on. But I paid more the Expedia than I would have had I just walked up.

The cruise was very nice and the weather was perfect. We got to see a great deal of the city lights from afar. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to see the New York skyline at night.
