Great memory was created that day with my family and Joel was polite and great at what he does. I’ll recommend this boat ride to everyone.
Touring NYC, the island

We had a great tour with Captain Joel. The boat was a blast. Seeing the city of NYC and surrounding islands from a different vantage point was exciting and my kids were able to mix culture with excitement!! Who could ask for more!

Great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and made sure we saw all the major sites and more. Was great to zoom round on the boat. Highly recommend this tour.
Amazing experience
, Oct 2019
Saw this as a tour option on Viator and thought it might be fun! There were 4 of us, friends for over 40 years who signed up. From signing up, the communication from the tour company to the tour itself, everything went super smoothly! We found the pier easily and our tour guide Joel did a great job prepping us as to what to expect. The coats (and pants if we wanted) that were provided were perfect in keeping the wind out. Joel even had a pony for my hair as i'd forgotten one! The tour was amazing and beautiful, such a great way to really see the city! HIGHLY recommended!
