Hear What People Have to Say About New York Harbor Tours!

If you are looking for a lovely afternoon on the water, look no further. As a long time New Yorker, I have taken many boat cruises around the island. Nothing compares to the tour I had with Captain Dave. The smaller setting and his wealth of knowledge about the ins and outs of the NY waterways made this a very special experience. It was a beautiful day and a truly memorable experience. I enjoyed it so much, I just gave my 27 year old son a gift certificate for his own cruise around NY. This is also a great, safe adventure for younger children.

We do not serve food but encourage you do bring munchies or picnic with you! There is a small galley onboard with a sink, hot water heater and coffee machine for your use. Feel free to stow food in the galley and grab it whenever you like.

  • What time do tours depart? We have set daily departures throughout the day (see here for times) for our intimate boutique public tours but encourage you to book a private charter so you can set the departure time that suits your schedule best.

  • What if the weather looks bad? Your safety is our primary concern and we will not go out in any conditions that are unsafe for the vessel, passengers and crew. In our experience, however, weather rarely forces a cancellation. Our boat has an enclosed cabin with seating if rain or wind are a nuisance and we provide rain gear for our guests who prefer to brave the elements on deck!

A full refund is issued if a cancellation is made more than 15 days prior to trip. If customer cancels less than 15 days prior to trip, a deposit will be kept but will be valid as credit toward future trip.
