Your excursion begins at the pier where you’ll board your air-conditioned motor coach to enjoy the land portion of your tour as your guide provides commentary en route to Lower Manhattan's historic 18th century South Street Seaport.
Tour through Greenwich Village, the Financial District and many other Manhattan neighborhoods on your drive to the Seaport. Once there you will embark on the harbor cruise for an approximately 60-minute tour of New York’s waterways. Experience unparalleled views of New York City's skyline and harbor as the ship guide provides an informative narration (in English only). Sail and see the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, One World Trade and the boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island. View neighboring New Jersey and the immigrant gateway to America, Ellis Island. Be sure to have your camera ready for a gem of a photo, as the boat passes directly in front of the Statue of Liberty (guests do not get off the vessel).
You’ll disembark the boat back at the South Street Seaport returning to your coach. Your guide will continue a narrated scenic drive en route back to the cruise ship. Arriving back at the South Street Seaport, you will re-join your coach for the leisurely transfer back to the pier, taking in some additional sites along the way.
