There is nothing like a New York Day Cruise to break away from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. Luckily there a few options that will get you away for anywhere from half hour to 3 hours.
Take a New York Day Cruise to Discover Parts of Manhattan That You’ve Never Seen

You’ll see all three rivers: the Hudson River to the west, the Harlem River to the north, and the East River to the East.
You’ll get to visit all seven bridges on your New York Day Cruise.

You’ll also see the outer boroughs: Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island. If you’re visiting from outside of NYC it might be interesting for you to know that New York City itself is often collectively referred to as the five boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Staten Island. So you’ll get a chance to see a portion of all five.
You’ll also get to visit some 25 other NYC landmarks on your New York Day Cruise, culminating in a visit to the Statue of Liberty.
Choose one of these longer New York Day Cruises if you’d really like to experience New York and have a little more time.
Take a New York Day Cruise Just to See the Statue of Liberty
If you’re time is more limited or if you just have the one goal of seeing the Statue of Liberty, then these shorter, more focused cruises would be a good fit for you.
You’ll get up close and personal with the magnificent Statue of Liberty. You’ll get to see Ellis Island, where so many of our ancestors passed through on the way to living the American dream.
You’ll also get to view the NYC skyline with commentary from your professional tour guides.
Maybe You Just Want a 30 minute New York Day Cruise
If this is you, then look into on of the cruises on a jet boat. You’ll go up to 45 miles per hour as you take in the awesome skyline. Most of these cruises also offer you a chance to spend a few minutes with the Statue of Liberty.
You will be satisfied with which ever type of New York Day Cruise you choose.
