Things to do in New York


At Circle Line, we like to think that we’ve perfected the fine art of the New York City sightseeing tour. Since first opening in 1945, have hosted over 80 million passengers on our cruises.

Today, we’re the only cruise company in New York Harbor exclusively dedicated to sightseeing with boats specifically designed to let you see as much as possible in any weather. Our dedication to offering the best possible NYC experience has earned us worldwide recognition as one of the best boat rides in the world.

Circle Line is proud to have the most modern fleet in the industry. We currently operate seven ships in the New York Harbor.

Our ships have been built not only to navigate our world-famous sightseeing tours, but are ideal for all types of events, including entertainment cruises, happy hours, charters and more.\

Our state-of-the-art boats come equipped with almost everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable cruise. Onboard Café – Freshly prepared menu of sandwiches, salads and snacks available to purchase. Refreshing Drinks – Enjoy a full bar serving up hot and cold beverages, beer, wine and cocktails. Free WiFi!

With decades of collective experience and insider information provided by the New York Historical Society, Circle Line’s top-rated tour guides are the best in the business. Sit back and relax while these entertaining regional experts share their knowledge, insights and good humor.

Glide down the Hudson river passing the colossal Hudson Yards, the towering One World Trade Center and the inspiring High Line Park, before passing the spectacular tip of southern Manhattan and ultimately cruising only a few feet away from the magnificent Statue of Liberty.

Get your camera ready because you’ll be yards away from some of the best selfies and photos of your life. And you won’t miss a thing as our award-winning tour guides narrate the story of New York City as you sit back, relax and luxuriate in the comfort of one of our state-of-the-art boats.

Glide by the towering One World Trade Center, cruise feet away from the Statue of Liberty, and experience breathtaking views of lower Manhattan before quietly slipping under the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges on the East River before returning to our home port in midtown Manhattan. All in less time than it takes to see a matinee.

Our world-famous tour guides narrate the story of New York City as you sit back and relax in the comfort of our modern boats.
