Full description
Climb aboard an 80-foot wooden pilot schooner and forget the mayhem and noise of Manhattan’s street life on a 105-minute harbor cruise. Take in the famous Manhattan skyline as it was meant to be seen — from the water. Depart from Chelsea Piers to see the famous stretch of docks retreat as you pass Battery Park, a green haven resting on the southern tip of Manhattan. Continue past Ellis Island, the immigrant doorway to America from 1892 to 1954. Look up at Lady Liberty as she carries the torch of America’s freedom at the Statue of Liberty. One complimentary alcoholic drink is included, with additional non-alcoholic drinks available for purchase. Enjoy an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience as the engines are shut down as much as possible.
