To get a first-hand experience of New York and its delightful sights, visitors can sign up for the exciting Liberty Cruise – a 75 minute tour that pays a visit to some of New York’s most popular destinations on board a cruise boat. The Liberty Cruise leaves daily – three times a day – from Pier 83 (West 42nd Street and 12th Avenue) from the shores of the Hudson River and returns over an hour later to the same departure point, making for convenient planning.
The Liberty Cruise incorporates some of New York’s most recognizable locations, including the Empire State Building, the Jacob Javits Convention Center, Battery Park City, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Governor’s Island, Wall Street, Brooklyn Bridge and South Street Seaport. This is a wonderful way to enjoy a view of New York’s downtown skyline and it is easy to understand why this tour is also known as ??One Skyline – One Statue??.
The Liberty Cruise is a seasonal venture and runs from May 1st to October 31st. On board, visitors can enjoy a beverage service, as well as sandwiches, hotdogs and snacks that are available for purchase. Up to 550 passengers can board the vessel and, for the most part, tours are operated in English only. The Liberty Cruise is also accessible to wheelchair bound passengers via ramps to get on board.
For a reasonably priced tour that could be used to get an overall feel of the beautiful New York skyline, the Liberty Cruise is an excellent option.
