A cruise of New York harbour is one of our most recommended things to do, especially on your first trip to New York. If you love New York views and taking pictures of its skyline, other than doing a tour at height (or either The World Trade Centre, The Rockefeller or the Empire State Building), a cruise is one of the only ways to get a skyline view at ground level, and with new York being so built up, un-interrupted views are impossible on the ground.
If you have time stop off in Brooklyn, not only will you get views of the New York skyline, Brooklyn has some of New York’s best restaurants and bars.
There are many ways to experience a cruise, from simple travel boats to ferry’s offering a bar service and evening banquets. See below for some ideas of the best ways to experience the harbour.
