Take a ride along the Hudson River and see the greatest sights that New York City has to offer when you take the New York Water Taxi!

Relax on a waterfront cruise while venturing through New York City. This 90 minute harbor cruise is one of a kind as it lets you hop off of the boat, do some sightseeing and then hop right back on! With your New York Pass, you have an All Day Access Pass that will be valid from 10am until 6pm on the same day of your purchase/or for New York Pass users, on the same day that you are using the pass to access the New York Water Taxi.
The cruise also offers interior seating and a comfy open deck for you to do your fair share of sightseeing while you are riding across the river. You'll get to see all of New York's most popular neighborhoods like DUMBO in Brooklyn, the bridges and of course the attractions that sit along the waterfront.

There are no reservations that need to be made for New York Pass holders looking to get on the New York Water Taxi. However, it is advised that you arrive to the pier at least 30 minutes prior to your preferred departure time for the best possible availability.

Highlights

 All Day Access Pass
With the New York Water Taxi's All Day Access Pass, you have the freedom to explore New York City as you please. While enjoying the cruise and the sights of the city, if you would like to get off the boat and take pictures or just absorb the scenery, you are more than welcome to do so. And similar to the Big Bus Hop Hop Hop Off Tour, you can use your All Day Access Pass to get right back on the boat when you are ready.

You'll be able to use your All Day Access Pass between the hours of 10am and 6pm.
