Best New York City Twilight Cruise

New York City Twilight Cruise

Make your way to Pier 78 on Manhattan's west side to board your twilight cruise. Enjoy the panoramic windows of the boat's climate-controlled indoor seating area, or head to the observation deck for unobstructed views of the mesmerizing New York skyline.

See the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building all lit up against the evening sky as you travel south down the Hudson River into New York Harbor. Delight in gorgeous views of the Statue of Liberty — her flame of hope cutting through the darkness — and Ellis Island, where many new immigrants began their American dream. Witness the stunning Brooklyn Bridge with its formidable towers and bright cable lights.

Capture plenty of photos as your informative guide tells you about the famous sights you see. Your 1.5-hour twilight cruise ends back at Pier 78 in early evening, leaving you the rest of the night to further explore the city that never sleeps.

It is awesome. It is worth the money. Just one thing which i wish could be the cruise should have more open area for seating and standing as it is more to watching outside.
everyone who wants to see NYC should see it .

We had perfect weather and the trip was fabulous. Eat before you arrive since there is no Restaurants very close by. We did find a fun bar in the main terminal next to the ticket office. Sunset is the time to take this tour.

The cruise was fabulous and very informative. Beautiful view of Manhattan at night. However, the employee working the ticket booth on Sat, Aug 2 in the evening was completely unfriendly. She did not greet anybody. She did not speak to anybody. She just sat in her chair and printed out tickets. Horrible customer service. The poor attitude showed in her face. She should not be working with customers. I suggest putting her down in the engine room of the boat.
