Statue of Liberty Express - New York Water Taxi

Adult (13+)


Child (3-12)



Finally, it’s possible to fulfill your 007 James Bond dreams with a cruise through the New York Harbor on the ZEPHYR Statue of Liberty Express luxury yacht. The sleek white 143-foot cruiser negotiates the waters with ease, as guests relax in plush seating inside or stand on their choice of three outdoor deck areas. A top-of-the-line audio system ensures that guests hear their tour guides no matter where they are on the craft. Passengers are ferried past all the most iconic New York sights in style. The majestic Brooklyn Bridge may no longer be the longest suspension bridge in the world, but it’s certainly among the most beautiful. In the battle for the most widely revered New York City landmark, the Empire State Building is one of the major contenders. Even though it’s several blocks inland, the ship gives passengers a good glimpse at its majestic Art Deco beauty.

Speaking of beauties, while the Empire State Building is a contender, the Statue of Liberty is right up there with it. Even after seeing images of it for years, nothing compares to sailing right up to her skirts and gazing upon her from the water. A gift from the French people in 1886, she stands an inch over 151 feet tall, welcoming immigrants and symbolizing freedom with her torch held high above the harbor. The tour takes a somber turn as it passes the site of the World Trade Center, but One World Trade Center’s triumphant rise is a perfect illustration of the resilience of this proud city.
