A high speed boat tour in New York is the perfect activity for adrenaline junkies!

RIB-Boat in Manhattan
The high speed boat trip departs from Pier 25 at Hudson River Park – a different location to where the sightseeing cruises depart from. This is an authentic part of New York and this boat trip is popular amongst both locals and visitors. You’ll have a better chance of experiencing the ‘real’ New York than you would if you were to go on a large company’s boat tour. The RIB boat used for this tour is without a doubt one of the fastest in New York. The comfortable seats allow you to sit safely without any restrictions. At high speed, the boat heads towards the Statue of Liberty, where it then slows down so that you can take photographs. The boat continues to proceed past Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn towards the Brooklyn Bridge, giving you a chance to see the bridge up close and personal. After this, the boat turns around and heads back to the pier in TriBeCa. In terms of clothing, there isn’t much splashing water on this tour, so you’ll arrive dry back on land.
After purchasing your tour, you’ll receive a voucher that you can either print out or show as a ticket on your telephone.
