Escape the hustle and bustle - New York's iconic checkered taxi is taking to the water. Experience the unparalleled city skyline while cruising along the Hudson river, catching sights of iconic landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge, the One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, and of course, the Statue of Liberty. Choose between a one-hour cruise around our Lady Liberty in the Statue of Liberty Express or experience the twinkle of the NY skyline in a romantic and picturesque Statue By Night cruise. Want to take your time to explore the city? Grab an All Day Access Pass, and choose between a 90-minute cruise on the water, or take the day to explore by hopping on and off as you please. From six piers to choose from, you're able to create your own itinerary and travel down the coast in style. Between each stop, you'll take in the sights from a climate-controlled cabin, or gaze at the concrete jungle from a breezy rooftop deck. Quench your thirst at a full cash bar or nom on snacks for purchase onboard. Whether you're just visiting or a true New Yorker, you'll find a new appreciation for the Big Apple and all of the wonders it has to offer.
