New Yorks’s Most Popular Experiences

If you have decided to rent a boat in New York City, here are three very popular things to do while exploring this famous area.

Explore the Hudson River
The Hudson River is 315 miles long, and it flows from north to south through eastern New York state. Originating in the Adirondack Mountains, the river is one of the most recognizable features of New York City. From the comfort of your New York boat rental, you can enjoy the scenery as well as take part in activities like water skiing, kayaking, or swimming in the river.

Visit Coney Island
Sail over from Manhattan, dock your New York City boat rental, and step ashore. In just a few hours, you can be transported from all of Manhattan’s bright lights to the old-school amusement of Coney Island. Coney Island offers unique entertainment that can feel worlds away from downtown.

Sail Around the Statue of Liberty
Enjoy your New York City boat rental by sailing around the Statue of Liberty as you experience sightseeing from the water. Marvel at the Manhattan skyline and see Lady Liberty as never before.

New York’s Best Bodies of Water

Cold Spring Harbor

This harbor is also perfect for watersports like water skiing and wakeboarding. Near the harbor, you will discover the Historic North Shore of Long Island, which is one of the most popular sailing areas near New York City. The coastline here features plenty of beaches, parks, and refreshing waters, as well as impressive historic mansions.

Freeport’s Nautical Mile

Dock your New York City boat rental at Freeport’s Nautical Mile to enjoy the many bars, restaurants, and marinas. You can stroll along the entire mile and watch some fishermen shucking clams and fresh fish being brought in right off the fishing boats. The pier at the end sometimes even has fireworks shows.

Fire Island

Sail your New York City boat rental to Fire Island, where the water is flat and calm for at least 150 square miles. You’ll have a chance to visit Sailors Haven on Fire Island’s Ocean Beach, or perhaps even to explore the Sunken Forest, swim at a lifeguarded beach, or roam around in search of interesting seashells.
