Liberty Cruise NYC is the best way to see the Statue of Liberty and other awe-inspiring sites around the harbor. Liberty Cruise New York passes by all of the sites two times which doubles the opportunity to observe them and take pictures of New York Harbor's priceless views. It is a great opportunity to learn many historical and interesting facts about New York harbor. All Downtown Cruises are narrated by live and licensed tour guides. Some of the sights that you'll see include:
The Statue of Liberty: The copper statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a French sculptor, was built by Gustave Eiffel and dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was a gift to the United States from the people of France. Inscribed on the tablet is the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
The World Trade Center: This is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. The supertall structure has the same name as the North Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was completely destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The new skyscraper's height of 1,776 feet is a deliberate reference to the year when the United States Declaration of Independence was signed.
The Brooklyn Bridge: this iconic bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge and is one of the oldest bridges of either type in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River.
Battery Park: The term 'Battery Park' has nothing to do with electricity, but everything to do with defense. It was so named because of the artillery batteries that were positioned there in the city's early years to protect the settlement behind them. The park contains a fort built for the defense of the city during the war of 1812 with the British.
Wall Street: the epicenter of world financial markets: The New York Stock Exchange. Nicknamed “The Big Board,” located at 11 Wall Street, it's the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization.
The Manhattan Bridge: one of the three bridges spanning the lower East River, this is the workhorse of the bridges. Cars, buses, bikes, subways all go over the Manhattan Bridge.
The South Street Seaport: is a historic area featuring some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan, including the largest concentration of restored early 19th-century commercial buildings in the city, sailing ships and the former Fulton Fish Market all with a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge. Although currently closed, upon completion, the Seaport District will be a premier cultural, dining and retail location.
When you're looking at NYC boat tours or a Statue of Liberty cruise, New York Water Tours is the way to go!
What a wonderful cruise. It was so worth it. This was a very interesting guided tour around Manhattan. The weather was perfect, the tour guide was informative. We were very close to the Statue of Liberty and had a plenty of time for taking photoes. Brilliant way to see the sights and have a rest from pounding the pavements.

In New York I learned many interesting things about the manhatten and made photos of views I have never seen before or never seen up close. Our Guide was very entertaining and interesting. The boat ride was so fun. Captain was a master at catching waves and speed while keeping us safe between points of interest. This was a unique adventure. Really loved it.

Absolutely the best thing we did in New York City. This was a real highlight of a recent trip to New York, our guide made sure we were comfortable and warm enough throughout the trip as the weather was freezing. Great to get a different perspective of the city. Don't bother going to see the Statue of Liberty - you get an amazing view here! We saw all of the main sights and made a lot great photos. I really would highly recommend it!

My friend and I were on a weekend trip to New York City and did the cruise with New York Water Tours. It was the bes way for us to see the wonders of New York City from the boat. We were given a good commentary about the city and learnt a lot new! The prices are good and you have the option of indoor or outdoor seating. Highly recommend.
