My best friend and I booked this tour last minute. We really wanted to go on a boat ride that was both a speedboat as well as some sightseeing. This was a perfect combination of both. Although it was a really hot day, the breeze from the boat made it very comfortable and relaxing. Our captain was fantastic. He was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I 100% recommend this boat tour to anyone whether you’re a native New Yorker or visiting for the first time. You will thoroughly enjoy this!

The experience was amazing. The views that you will get are most certainly one of a kind! Joel was the most amazing tour guide and he was very knowledgeable on the history of sites that we visited. This tour is a must see! I’ve lived in NYC all my life but seeing these sites from this perspective is definitely worth the money!
