- See the world’s most famous skyline lit up by night
- Sail in style aboard a majestic 1920s wooden schooner
Admire the Big Apple by night from the water, with this magnificent Manhattan cruise on the Hudson river. You’ll be travelling aboard the Shearwater, a former racing yacht that also served on submarine patrol during World War II, and has now been beautifully restored for scenic cruises. The hustle and bustle of the New York City streets fades away seems a world away, but you can never forget where you are entirely, as the lights of the city’s most iconic landmarks point the way. The Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, the towering skyscrapers of Manhattan - never more magnificent than when seen by night.
As the schooner cruises gently past the New York and New Jersey skylines, the captain provides a live commentary so you can learn a little about the history of what you’re seeing too. Sit back in comfort with a complimentary welcome drink (an open bar is also available for more refreshments), and watch as the lights dance on the water. There is plenty of choice when it comes to a New York sightseeing cruise, but we’re certain this is one of the city’s finest - purely because of the elegant and historic vessel on which you’re sailing.
