Best Of NYC Cruise
This 2.5 hour tour takes a full trip around the island of Manhattan and leaves no stones unturned. The Best of NYC cruise will show you all 5 boroughs (Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island and The Bronx), sail right next to the Statue of Liberty and pass by the native NYC rivers.
Along the way, you will be accompanied by Circle Line's expert guides that will keep you informed of what is happening on the tour and make sure that you don't miss a beat.

Harbor Lights Sunset Cruise
The city that never sleeps certainly comes alive at night time. The Harbor Lights Sunset cruise gives you the chance to see New York City when the sun is down and the lights are on. View the city's lights shining into the river as you pass by Lady Liberty. 
The tour departs daily at 7pm and floats along the river for 2 hours which gives you plenty of time to digest the scenery.

BEAST Speedboat
Put the pedal to the metal and ride toward the Statue of Liberty at max speed. The BEAST Speedboat is the fastest way to cruise out to Lady Liberty. You can ride the BEAST every hour, on the hour from 10am - 6pm.
The boat travels at 45 miles per hour for the 30 minute ride so it is advised that no pregnant women, individuals with serious heart conditions or any serious injuries board the BEAST.
