What You Can Expect

New York Harbor Hop-on Hop-off Cruise including 9/11 Museum Ticket

9/11 Museum

Board this unique hop-on hop-off day cruise at Pier 79 in midtown Manhattan. Then enjoy the ride along NYC’s Hudson River to New York Harbor. If it’s too warm outside, relax in the climate-controlled indoor cabin or go to the top deck for panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline. The 90-minute cruise offers unparalleled views of some of New York City’s top landmarks, like One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge and much more.

With this unique tour, there is the option to hop off at any one of six piers to experience some of New York City’s finest attractions, like Battery Park, which is just a short walk to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. 

The memorial is a tribute of remembrance and honor to the almost 3,000 people that were killed on 9/11 — at the World Trade Center site, in the plane crash near Shanksville, PA, and at the Pentagon — as well as the six people who were killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993. See the twin reflecting pools, each nearly an acre in size that feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America. The pools sit at the very spots where the Twin Towers once stood. Also, look up and see One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.

Then, inside the National September 11 Museum, experience 110,000 square feet of exhibit space located at the heart of the World Trade Center site. The museum tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks are commemorated here.

There’s no need to hail this taxi. Hop back on the boat at any of the six piers, anytime during the day, to help get from one great attraction to the next. A full cash bar and snacks are available inside the boat’s air-conditioned cabin throughout the day.

This was a great hop on cruise your. The views amazing and the crew was too notch! We were told a lot of interesting stories and the crew made sure we were able to take great pictures. 9-11 Memorial was also very good.

For the money we paid it was a great deal! We really enjoyed the 911 museum and boat ride for the day! The only problem we had is Viator is not posted outside so you have to look for the yellow boat taxi instead.
