Circle Line Liberty Cruise

The Circle Line Liberty Cruise is a 60-minute cruise that’ll show you the main sights of New York in a short period of time. The price is very good and you get to see some of New York’s sites from a different point of view. In 60 minutes, you will see the Statue of Liberty and Midtown Manhattan, including all the famous landmarks such as Wall Street, Brooklyn Bridge and Battery Park. The tour starts on the Hudson River on the west side of Manhattan at the Circle Line terminal on Pier 83 (12th Avenue between 42nd and 43rd Street).

Narrated Boat Tour

The tour is fully narrated and the guide will tell you not only all about New York and its buildings. In addition to fun facts, the live narration will make your tour interesting and enjoyable. There is also a free, multilingual app available if you prefer an audio guide.

It is great to hear more about the Statue of Liberty itself, Ellis Island – the gateway for millions of immigrants – and of course the historic immigration centre. Seeing as you get up close and personal with Lady Liberty herself, be sure to have your camera ready to take fantastic photographs! You can sit inside (air-conditioned) or enjoy the breeze outside and food, drinks and souvenirs are available onboard. You can also bring along your own food (perhaps in a Doggy Bag?) and non-alcoholic drinks on board.

Eric’s Tip: “If you want to enjoy a tour in a sailboat then take the Statue of Liberty Tall Ship Sailing Cruise. In one to two hours you’ll sail the waters of New York and see sights such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.”
