There’s no better way to take in the sights of the city than from the water. And there’s nothing more fun than zipping across the water’s surface in a speedboat!

Sightseeing is all well and good, but why settle for a laid back ride when you can zoom across the water at 35 miles per hour in the open water around New York Harbor? You’ll depart from historic South Street Seaport and board a 135-passenger SHARK, and you’ll be on your way to the thrill ride of your life.

You will have the opportunity to see the Statue of Liberty, where you will stop for a one-of-a-kind photo op, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Staten Island Ferry, and One World Trade Center. That’s a whole lot, packed into one 30 minute tour. A licensed tour guide will tell you everything you need to know about everything you see, from the harbor to the skyline. And don’t worry: they will even make sure that you know where to sit if you want to be in the splash zone because yes, you can get soaked on this fun-in-the-sun adventure! This is an ideal tour for thrill-seekers, or really anyone who feels the need for speed. Alongside tour guide narration, you will get to hear some heart-pumping tunes to score your adventure, but please note that the tour is not recommended for those under 40 inches tall.
