This 2 hour cruise departs Pier 83 West 42nd Street with the ferry cruising down the Hudson River to Battery Park and Lower Manhattan, on the way coming within 200 metres of the Statute of Liberty and hovering for a few minutes for a "photo shoot". Ellis Island is nearby, a great variety of river traffic , then into the East River and the Seaport Historic District and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. On the return journey you can sit and relax or vie Brooklyn and New Jersey on the other side of the river.

A live commentary accompanies the trip drawing your attention to the various highlights. There is a cafe onboard for those who require refreshments. Tickets cost $26 pp, however I recommend you purchase the City Pass for $53 which has entrance to 5 famous attractions including the Empire State Building.

Address: Pier 83, West 42nd Street
Directions: Between Pier 81 & Hudson River Park Trust.
