Tour description provided by Viator

Watch the lights of America's largest city twinkle to life on this tranquil twilight cruise in New York Harbor. See top New York attractions such as the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge as your informative guide provides narration. Take in unobstructed views from the boat's observation deck, and have your camera ready for amazing photo ops. Ideal for couples and families alike, this tour allows you to admire New York's iconic sights when they are most dazzling.

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.
