Couldn't have seen the Statue of Liberty a better way. Sit at front of boat if you don't want to get wet!!
My boyfriend came visit me from Florida, and we tried the speedboat ride. It was amazing. The music, the captain and the other guy...it was a lot of fun. We loved it.
The beast is the BEST!! This was a half hour well spent. What fun!! The guys running the boat are hilarious and make the trip a 100 percent adrenalin filled awesome ride. They've a wealth of information, too, on the surrounding coastline and even had a water fight with another boat, which they used to own. Everyone enjoyed this ride and I would really recommend it.
My daughter and I enjoyed this cruise. The guys that run the boat were fantastic, and I would highly recommend it. It beats sitting on one of those big tour boats for three hours. The tour was fast, loud, and funny. Keep up the good work.
We went dressed up for my 40th birthday. Thee guys on the boat and music really make this worth doing - brilliant!
Very well presented but all too short experience on this speedboat. Commentary was excellent and the staff were lively and amusing. Very professional and entertaining but a little more sea manoeuvring would have been great.
A great way to see the Statue of Liberty, good fun and good hosts!
Only reason I haven't given 5 stars is I thought we would do more fun manoeuvres! maybe next time!
My husband and I had a great time. The beast boat ride was exciting and thrilling!!!
Great fun, we and the kids loved it, and the views of downtown and the Statue of Liberty were amazing. I was annoyed to miss out on a tour starting at 10am after queueing as I didn't realise we needed to exchange our online ticket for an actual boarding pass. We then had to wait a whole hour for the next tour. It would have been good to know this, as well as WHERE the boat leaves from, as this information was also not on the booking, or website!
A little disappointing not as fast and exciting as we were led to believe , sit near the front if you don't want to get wet
This was nice, quick and relatively fun. The bummer was that is was so full that we had to sit in the back and could not see anything. Our view was of the side of the boat. Also I went at 9:45am to exchange the receipt for a ticket and was told that it was full until 2pm. It would be better if you could select your time in advance because then we had to re-plan our day and return back to that spot 4 hours later.
Awesome! You will feel the andrenaline rush from start to finish! Great and unforgettable experience :-)
Great !!!!1 Better always to take last trip of the day. They extend the ride a little bit longer.
WELL WORTH THE MONEY!! Get into the holiday atmosphere with the Beast, the fastest speedboat on Hudson River! A word of warning, this isnt for the faint hearted (and dont eat before you go!) as this is fast but its an amazing holiday experience and a brilliant way to see the Statue of Liberty, the fantastic corporate skyline and Ellis Island quickly and in a fun way:) Well reccomend it!
Great trip of you want a bit of fun. Quick blast down the Hudson, 5mins at the Statue of Liberty, and quick blast back.
We-- 2 grandparents and 2 grandchildren-- had a great ride. BUT...we arrived foirty-five minutes early, and it was miserable staning in line in brilliant sunshine at noonday without a smidge of shade. On the boat? A-Okay.
BTW: Parking on the pier is a snap, if you don't mind $35 for the hour.
Great time overall, the boat was comfy, safe and fast (we were on the new 'beast'), the hosts were awesome and funny. Would recommend to anyone.
