The boat stops for photos at the Freedom Tower, circles around Battery Park, cruises up the East River, and stops again for a photo opportunity underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. Then sit back, relax and listen to the music of your choice as we cruise out to the Statue of Liberty. The boat stops directly in front of Lady Liberty giving passengers a perfect setting to photograph themselves with one of the most iconic landmarks in the world.

Mike was absolutely fantastic, extremely friendly, an excellent navigator, knows where the best photo spots are, and the experience was even better than we hoped for. We had our 7 year old with us and he made her feel like she was the star of the show. He's found fans in us and we can't wait to book another tour with him. I can't recommend him highly enough!
We had an amazing experience with Captain Will! The weather was perfect. We listened to our own playlist, learned a few fun facts, took pictures with the ever-stunning New York City Skyline, and felt completely relaxed. No complaints and I highly recommend this experience.
Michael was the captain himself and he helped my friend propose to his girlfriend and now fiancé and really made it a super safe and pleasant experience. The cold weather didn’t interfere as Michael is an expert and knows his boat inside and out. I book with him on regular basis. All his captains and staff are excellent and the experience is breathtaking. Great for tourists to show the attractions of NYC and famous destinations. You will not want to leave the boat, it cannot get boring nor old to enjoy the beautiful water views and scenery. High class and super elegant! Thanks so much Michael. You are the best !
What a day this past Saturday out with Mike.. took a few friends out for my birthday and had such an amazing time. The views were awesome, the boat was comfortable and spacious and and Mike was an amazing host and captain! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for a more personal experience out on the water without the crowds. Looking forward to booking again with Mike!
Michael was wonderful and patient. It was a surprise for my friend and he was completely enchanted as was I. Michael took some great photos w Freedom tower and lower Manhattan skyline and got us as close as possible to Statue of Liberty for some truly memorable pics. He also told us some interesting stories of films like wolf of Wall Street and Captain Sully.
I am Michael a Principal and U.S.C.G. Licensed Captain. As an avid and native New Yorker, the historic and majestic sights of New York Harbor have always been a part of my life. But it wasn’t until I owned a powerboat and cruised past these iconic landmarks, that I fully appreciated and marveled at their beauty. For nearly a decade I have enjoyed the sights and sounds of New York Harbor. Now, I am proud to start the company, so people from all over the country and the world, can share my sense of excitement while cruising past these incredible landmarks in an intimate and relaxed setting with family, friends and loved ones.
