    • There’s no better way to see Lady Liberty. Enjoy epic views of the Statue of Liberty from the water and revel in the opportunity to see Lady Liberty like many before you – by boat.

    • Be ahead of the pack. Crowds flock to New York’s cruises so be sure to pre-book your tickets well in advance to gain easy, skip-the-line access to the best boat trips.
    • Team your cruise with a tour or two. Brush up on your history with a tour around Ellis Island. This iconic site was the first point of call for immigrants to New York from 1892 to 1952, the stopover on the island determining the fate of migrant hopefuls for decades. A visit to the “Island of Hope, Island of Tears” is a must-do on your NYC trip.

    Best Time To Visit Rain or shine, this cruise will entertain no matter what the weather. Ideally though, Autumn and Spring are the most favourable times to cruise, with conditions remaining pleasant outside of the harsh summer rays. For those seeking cheaper deals, the winter months between January to mid-March are your best bet, plus there are significantly less tourist crowds to contend with at this time of year. Just be sure to bring your coat onboard!
    Getting There The best way to get to your New York cruise will of course depend on the tours starting point. New York’s subway system bears stations close to most of the major ports in the city.
    Money Saving Tips The best way to save money on New York boat trips is by booking tickets well in advance. Be sure to look out for combination passes to get extra bang for your buck. Our website boasts plenty of cruises with optional tour add-ons and saver options including visits to Staten Island, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty, among many others.

    • There is a mysterious boat graveyard on Staten Island. Complete with decaying ships and rusting rowboats, the Staten Island Boat Graveyard Is an eerily beautiful site. It is not known how or why the discarded ships found their way to the island, and today the peculiar site attracts artists, locals, and travellers alike.
    • The first immigrants to arrive on Ellis Island were three unaccompanied minors on New Year’s Day, 1892. On this day, steamship Nevada arrived with 124 passengers, with Irish teenager Annie Moore the first to set foot on Ellis Island. Her two brothers were close behind her. The threesome were later reunited with their family in New York.
    • New York City’s harbour has been featured in countless movies over the years. The Staten Island ferry alone has been a backdrop in at least six films including ‘The Dark Knight’ (2008) and ‘Working Girl’ (1987), while famous silver-screen moments from the ferry include ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Law and Order’.
