Strongly recommended. Ride had a few fun bumps but was mostly smooth and completely dry-not one splash. We took the $99 experience which packed a lot of amazing sights in, narrated by a heck of a knowledgable and friendly guy, and a skilled helmsman. Do it.

We stumbled upon New York Media Boat tours just heading to the Battery Park walkway from the 9/11 memorial and I am so glad we did!

We've been to NYC plenty of times but this was the 1st visit for some of our group and we were only in the city for a day. This tour had us see so much and from a vantage point I've never seen the city!

We saw so many of the sights that others spend days and and even more money attempting to see but this 90-minute tour had it all! (Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge, great shots of the GW Bridge, midtown and downtown skylines, Brooklyn, the High Line and other new elements of the skyline, etc.) We were closer than any other big harbor tour and with views you can't get when buried in the city on a bus or walking tour. Plus you also feel like it's private because of the small size of the speedboat. The information shared is historical and full of cool facts and because of the small group size, you can ask questions.

Eric, our captain/guide, was so knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and even took great photos of our group at many of the landmarks. If you're asking, the risk of getting wet is low, the boat is designed to push water away. We never got wet which was a plus since we had a Broadway show later. 😉 The speed was awesome, safe, and comfortable while zipping around the harbor, Hudson, and East rivers.

This tour is highly recommended! 👍👍 10 out of 10! Choose them for the best photos, adventure experience, and views of the NYC skyline and landmarks. The value is insane for everything you get to see and learn and, again, some of the best views and photos I've had of the NYC skyline out of all my visits. Thanks Eric and NYMB for this great spur of the moment experience!

We have a 14yo Swedish exchange student with us for a month and she was desperate to see all of NYC. This was such a fantastic way to fit many sites in in a mere 90 minutes. Sean, our guide, was so great. At times he stopped the boat to give quick explanations, provide tidbits on historical significance or pop culture. We had an up close, great photo-taking experience out on the water. I Loved it. And our student hasn’t stopped talking about how fun it was to see “everything” from the water!

A must. 4th trip to Manhattan And honestly the best experience and only way to get the best views. Sean was our guide and he was so expert in handling the Boat, so helpful at all the stops offering great info and taking time to take lots of pictures for you. Such fun and exciting experience.

We did the media boat tours for a team event and had an amazing time! (This was actually our second time coming back we had remembered it so fondly). The boat team was super responsive during the planning process and super flexible to make sure we could make the time slot we wanted work - even pulling out an extra boat and driver to make it happen. The tour was so fun - I think everyone was laughing or smiling the whole time. We zipped all over the Hudson and onto the East River, seeing NYC from a perspective many had not seen before and the guides are super knowledgeable and share so many facts you've never heard about NYC. Great for visitors and NYCers alike! Would HIGHLY recommend for team/company events or even to do with friends. 10/10 would recommend!! I doubt this will be my last time!

hello, a very good welcome and a very nice ride. a point of improvement, speaking little English and the noise not helping to hear well, it lacks an audio guide or a brochure to take full advantage of the explanations in another language. French in my case. best wishes

This boat tour was the highlight of my NYC birthday trip! Captain Sean was fantastic. We raced up the west side of Manhattan with periodic pauses for captain Sean to point out landmarks. We then came back down the east side of Jersey, went around the nyc battery, stopped under the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridge, went around governors island, and then finished with a close ride next to the Statue of Liberty.

I wish I could rate this experience and company 100 stars. The email they send perfectly explains how to find them, what to wear, and other helpful pieces information to be ready. The boat isn't big which means you will have an intimate tour and the ride itself was very smooth. Do yourself a favor, book with This company!

Spent a hot and humid weekend in Manhattan with family (incl. 2 teenage boys), and this boat ride was the absolute highlight of the trip — it was completely glorious to be out on the water and going fast. When you’re in the city and walking or driving everywhere, you lose sight of the scale of it. Being on the water provided amazing perspective and spectacular panoramic views. Shawn, our captain, was super friendly and knowledgeable, sharing inside scoop and fun facts about the known (and not-so-known) landmarks. The whole family loved it, and left grinning from ear to ear. Highly recommend!

Fantastic couple of hours on the water with Captain Pat. Totally recommend this boat trip, such amazing close ups views of NY skyline, Statue of Liberty. Way more exciting being on the speed boat than a standard tour. May seem a little pricey but totally worth, don’t hesitate just book it

Booked the trip as part of an extended weekend break to NYC with my son who had just completed his exams and turned 16. We have previously been to NYC and done the main attractions and pounded the streets for many miles so wanted a different view of NYC this time round. What attracted me to book was that it was an extended tour of 1.5hrs (which turned out to be exactly the case) and you got to see all the the beautiful Manhattan skyline and also Statue of Liberty close up. Overall the trip was awesome, was one of the most enjoyable excursions I've done in NYC and would thoroughly recommend - also sit at the front for the best experience!
