What people are saying about Hoboken

This tour is brilliant. A great way to see New York from the water. The boat captain knew all the best photo opportunities and gave great details about what we weee seeing. Cannot recommended highly enough. The company were also advertising shorter tours from the pier

Was really a great moment. We can just recommend this company, really professional, a warm welcome, a great pilot that took time to stop the boat and explained us lot of details of what we were seeing and what we should not missed …. No negative point !

We had so many amazing experiences during our NYC trip, but this boat trip was a highlight for me, my three teenagers, and my dad. If you’re dithering about whether to splurge or not, I can only encourage you to do it— it was TOTALLY worth it to us!!

Overall, it was fast and fun, and the guide made us feel comfortable and safe. He was also full of fun anecdotes about New York City (and we live here!). Worth the cost.

me family and friends had a great time would definitely do it again when I come back
