Great experience and unique way to see Manhattan!

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see the city and up-close to the Statue of Liberty. What sets this tour apart from others? The journey itself is exciting speeding across the waves in the Hudson and East Rivers, small group on your tour, you'll be supporting a small local business, and it's a fun way to cool off on a hot summer day!!

The Adventure Boat Ride was amazing!! We had the best time and our guide, Eric, was extremely kind, warm, knowledgeable, funny, and professional--he was fantastic. It was wonderful to see so much of the city and NJ from the water--absolutely beautiful. We highly recommend this experience for both tourists and locals alike--it's definitely a "don't miss" if you're in the city. THANK YOU!
