Hop aboard your boat from Pier 83 on the west side of Manhattan. Your 60-minute cruise takes you down the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty before turning back. Along the way, learn about the sites and New York’s history from an informative guide on board, and keep your camera out and ready.
Get a prime vantage point of the majestic Statue of Liberty, as your captain pulls up within 100 feet (30 meters) of the monument. Pass by Ellis Island and learn about its historic role in American immigration. Set your sights on One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at a height of 1,776 feet (541 meters). Sail past the World Financial Center (renamed Brookfield Place in 2014 after renovations), home to corporation giants like Merrill Lynch, RBC Capital Markets and American Express.
Snap plenty of photos of iconic sites during the cruise, and if you’d like snacks or drinks, food and beverages are available for purchase right on the boat.

Nice short tour. If you don’t upgrade to premium, you can’t go to the upper deck of the boat. Still nice on lower deck though. There’s no air conditioning on upper deck.
It was a drizzly misty afternoon but we still had a great time! The guide was funny and super knowledgeable. The boat was so accommodating and clean. The whole process ran smoothly due to professionalism of Circle Line.
Wonderfull sunny day to see Manhattan from the water. Comprehensive and knowledgeable guide.
Although it was very cold day, we enjoyed every moment of it. The views make forget the cold.
Excellent! Very satisfied.
We love it! So many tourists but that won't stop you from enjoying the cruise.
Fabulous cruise on the Hudson to take an up close view of Lady Liberty. The commentary throughout was excellent and gave you an insight to the buildings and points of interest along the way. The boat slowed down once we arrived at Liberty, so everyone has the opportunity to take photos. The 1 hour cruise is an excellence choice for those with limited time in New York. Food and drink was also available for purchase, as well as souvenir photos that can be purchased at the end of the cruise.
Perfect trip for our family, 1 hour round trip to Lady Liberty and back. Tour guide David was extremely knowledgeable and quick witted. I enjoyed his talks. Plenty of photo opportunities up and back as well.
The weather was less than wonderful, but the cruise was great. Thankfully it didn't rain during the cruise. It was cloudy but our photos are good. We were looking for a one hour tour with a pier close to our hotel. The NYC Liberty Cruise was perfect. Our guide was incredibly informative and knew what he was talking about. Not too corny but entertaining. We were celebrating birthdays and this was one of the highlights. I would highly recommend this cruise.
It was a nice trip. Though I felt it was too short trip, just around 40mins, Definitely recommend to some one who need a nice cruise to spend an hour.
