All aboard one of New York City’s newest luxury yachts for a happy hour cruise around the harbor. This is an exciting alternative to your typical happy hour: why sit inside at a crowded bar when you could get out on the water to enjoy drinks with friends, coworkers, and colleagues. This isn’t a dinner cruise, this is just a relaxing mix and mingle opportunity as you cruise around enjoying delicious beverages and stunning panoramic views of New York City.

Hornblower’s Alive After Five Cocktail Cruise is a 2-hour jaunt around the harbor, with specialty cocktails and a selection of savory bar snacks. An award-winning DJ spins thrilling dance hits so that you can lose yourself in both the party as well as the view.
