Enjoy the best of the Big Apple on this tour that combines viewing the city by both land and sea.
Travel by coach from the pier, enjoying a scenic drive as you make your way to Lower Manhattan's historic 18th century South Street Seaport. This charming area is replete with historic tall ships, museums, exhibits and restaurants. Upon arrival, you will have approximately 1 hour to explore at your leisure before boarding the 'Zephyr', a state-of-the-art, custom built luxury catamaran that will take you on a 60-minute tour of New York's waterways. From the decks of your touring vessel you will experience unparalleled views of the New York City skyline and the port as your guide provides an informative narration throughout your cruise. Sail under the Brooklyn Bridge and view many of New York's landmarks from the unique vantage point of the water, including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, World Financial Center and the famous boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island. See Ellis Island, the famous immigrant gateway to America, and make sure to have your camera ready as the highlight of your cruise will no doubt be as you pass directly in front of the Stature of Liberty.
Arriving back at the South Street Seaport, you will re-join your coach for the leisurely transfer back to the pier, taking in some additional sites along the way.
Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mainly at the guest's discretion during the free time at South Street Seaport. The tour is available to guests who utilize a wheelchair who are able to make their way on and off the coach and sit in a coach seat. The lower deck of the catamaran is wheelchair accessible but to reach the upper deck you must negotiate a stairway. There are 2 enclosed, climate controlled decks as well as 1 open deck. Because the temperature on the water can be much cooler, it is recommended that tour participants bring a light weight jacket or dress in layers. Casual clothing and comfortable, flat walking shoes are suggested. Restrooms are available at the South Street Seaport and on the catamaran. The order of the sites visited or viewed may vary.
