Our guide was full of great information. It was the BEST experience we had in NYC! Highly recommend!
Amazing sightseeing tour while avoiding the crowds
, Sep 2021
We had a blast - great weather and perfect day on the river(s) Guide was very accommodating in regards to picture opportunities while also giving history of the buildings/general area. Much better than the (yawn), slow boats that will take you around the Statue of Liberty.
Perfect adventure for tweens and teens!

Loved this experience and my 12 Year old son had a blast and wanted to do it again the next day. We had a great captain, funny, informative and helpful taking pics of my son and I. Great way to see NY landmarks.
Amazing and perfect!

Better than the Ferry

This was the highlight of my New York trip. Riding this smaller vessel provided an enhanced experience of seeing the city from the water. Eric was an excellent guide. I highly recommend this tour.
Great experience and unique way to see Manhattan!

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see the city and up-close to the Statue of Liberty. What sets this tour apart from others? The journey itself is exciting speeding across the waves in the Hudson and East Rivers, small group on your tour, you'll be supporting a small local business, and it's a fun way to cool off on a hot summer day!!

This was hand’s down one of the best experiences of my life!! Bringing my teenager to NYC for her first time and getting spoiled with this ride is going to set the bar really high! Captain Eric was AMAZING!!!!! You will truly luck out if you get him as your capt. He took his time with us, and made it so perfect. We will do this everytime we visit!

This was such an incredible tour and experience. We took our son (8 years old) and he loved it as well. It was a fun and unique way to see A LOT of different things. Our tour guide (Joel) was very knowledgeable, fun and friendly. He went above and beyond to get our tour in amongst weather. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Top fun thing to do in NYC

The Adventure Boat Ride was amazing!! We had the best time and our guide, Eric, was extremely kind, warm, knowledgeable, funny, and professional--he was fantastic. It was wonderful to see so much of the city and NJ from the water--absolutely beautiful. We highly recommend this experience for both tourists and locals alike--it's definitely a "don't miss" if you're in the city. THANK YOU!
