What You Can Expect:

Our tour boat is a new, state-of-the-art Sea Ray 280 Sundancer. It’s loaded with high-end features to make your trip as relaxing and comfortable as possible.

We offer private charters for any occasion. From a romantic evening with a loved one, to a celebratory night out with friends, or a once-in-a-lifetime view of Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks, a private charter with us offers an unparalleled boating experience. A private charter is also a perfect opportunity for corporate client servicing.

Sightseeing Boat Tour

Our sightseeing tour creates a truly memorable experience for everyone aboard. Passengers embark at North Cove Marina in lower Manhattan, and the tour begins after a short safety briefing. 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. Throughout the tour, passengers can enjoy a light refreshment as our captain touches upon the history of the Hudson River and gives some historical facts on the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty.

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 NYCbySEA, 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.
