In the evening, make your way to Pier 15 along Manhattan’s South Street Seaport at the East River Esplanade, and board the yacht for your 2-hour happy hour cruise. As the boat departs down the East River, admire the dusky glow of New York Harbor and snap photos of Lower Manhattan's postcard-perfect skyline as it lights up.

Mingle with friends, family or co-workers as you sip beer and wine or order up your favorite cocktails from the premium open bar (depending on which option you select upon booking). Listen to live music or DJ entertainment and let loose on the dance floor, or perch on the outer decks for panoramic views of New York City landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the Freedom Tower, the Chrysler Building and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Conclude your happy hour cruise back at Pier 15.

    My wife and I are from South America, we went to the US for our honeymoon. Our last city was NYC, and the last night of our trip started with this cruise. And I have to say, it was the perfect way to begin the last night of our honeymoon of course it was my wife's idea to do the cruise :D. The scenery was amazing, and the on board service was great. After only 10 minutes, we were all dancing on the deck with cool music and the NYC skyline behind us. Amazing. 100 would and will do it again :

    I loved the tour. View is breathtaking and have music, drinks and food make the perfect complement! If you can include the all inclusive option is better to save money, individual drinks are expensive.

    The last tour starts at 6pm so by the time you are in the cruise, it's not dark so you can't really see the city lights.

    No thanks to Viator, who took payment and confirmed booking for a cruise that was not running that day! We had come from the UK for the weekend and I had organised it, with Limo, for 12 of us for my friends 50th as a suprise. What a suprise it was when we arrived and there was no boat. I was in tears. Luckily one of our party was able to negotiate with Hornblower Harbour who run the tour who kindly accommodated us the following evening and made the tour absolutely fantastic for us. The DJ, food, drinks and complete experience was unforgettable and we would strongly recommend it to anyone visiting New York who wants to see the skyline at night. It was as warm or as cold as you wanted it to be as the inside is toasty and the decking is large and affords the most wonderful platform for photo's. Don't hesitate to book. There is also a very friendly bar right by the pier that is ideal for waiting at before or after. Thanks to Hornblower - Viator we shall never use you again!
