At least in decent weather, this is a great way to see a range of midtown, downtown, harbor and Brooklyn landmarks. Many unrivaled photo ops. Entertaining but not overly obtrusive announcements.

A fantastic experience, a great way to see some of the famous monuments and skylines. A friendly and knowledgeable guide (Dave) to go along side the cruise, the whole experience was well organised and fun. Tip: arrive early, as they do begin to let you board the cruise a good hour before your time slot, this will allow you to get the seats that you want, as for obvious safety reasons they do not let you stand on the top deck, so once seats have gone they are gone and you will have to be seated on the lower deck. We were lucky as we were very early and got sat on the top deck which made the cruise more special.
