Speed Boat in Manhattan

The high speed boat trip departs from Downtown Manhattan – a different departure location to the sightseeing cruises. The boat used for this tour is, without a doubt, one of the fastest in New York. The comfortable seating allows you to sit safely, without restrictions. At high speed, the boat heads towards the Statue of Liberty, where it slows down so you can take photos. The boat continues past Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, towards the Brooklyn Bridge, which you can see up close and personal. After this, the boat turns around to head back. In terms of clothing, there isn’t much splashing water on this tour, so you’ll arrive dry back on land.

Eric’s Tip: I have taken many boat tours in New York, and was pleasantly surprised by this one. Firstly, for those who still have their doubts, it is not scary. And, because the boat is relatively small, this tour doesn’t feel like a tourist attraction; more like a local activity. Secondly, this boat has access to sail around different locations in comparison to the large tour boats, which means getting closer to the skyline and to the water. I thought this was a great boat tour and very suitable for those seeking something slightly different than the usual sightseeing cruises.
