New York City Twilight Cruise


Make your way to Pier 78 on Manhattan's west side to board your twilight cruise. Enjoy the panoramic windows of the boat's climate-controlled indoor seating area, or head to the observation deck for unobstructed views of the mesmerizing New York skyline.

See the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building all lit up against the evening sky as you travel south down the Hudson River into New York Harbor. Delight in gorgeous views of the Statue of Liberty — her flame of hope cutting through the darkness — and Ellis Island, where many new immigrants began their American dream. Witness the stunning Brooklyn Bridge with its formidable towers and bright cable lights.

Capture plenty of photos as your informative guide tells you about the famous sights you see. Your 1.5-hour twilight cruise ends back at Pier 78 in early evening, leaving you the rest of the night to further explore the city that never sleeps.

    We did this tour on Thanksgiving evening. The Pier was a little hard to find as there were coaches blocking it. No one was around to help. When we went to get on boat they said we have to transfer our voucher for tickets. Cruise was good, tour guide gave us some wonderful insights into the city. Wrap up ward because it gets cold out there. The skyline and the Statue of Liberty at night are breath taking.

    Great dialog of buildings, bridges and history of NY skyline and historical events. The city had clouds hanging over the taller buildings, yet the light on buildings and bridges were visible and beautiful. Great view of Statue of Liberty, unfortunately Ellis a island is not lite at night. I would encourage this tour.

    This was one of the highlights of our trip. The best way to see New York is from the water at night.
