What You'll Get
Take your sea legs out of winter storage and set sail with today's side deal: for $26, you get one ticket to your choice of two New York Harbor cruises, courtesy of Classic Harbor Line (a $40 value). This Groupon is good for either a ticket on the Statue & Skyline sightseeing yacht cruise in April and May (cruises are on Mondays at 4:30 p.m., Wednesdays at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., and Fridays at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.) or for a ticket on the Day Sails schooner cruise in May (cruises are on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m., Thursdays at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., and Fridays at 1:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.). Groupon buyers must call or email Classic Harbor Line to schedule their cruise before Wednesday, April 26, 2010.
On the Statue & Skyline cruise, you'll step aboard the Manhattan, Classic Harbor Line's 1920s-style commuter yacht, and set sail for a 90-minute cruise past Battery Park, the Financial District, Governor's Island, and the Statue of Liberty, as well as parts of Queens and Brooklyn, including the Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn bridges. You'll get a 360-degree view of New York's magnificent architecture from the ship's cozy, enclosed back-deck observatory.
On the Day Sail cruise, you'll set out on one of Classic Harbor Line's two 80-foot pilot schooners, the Adirondack or the Adirondack III, for a two-hour tour of the harbor, with magnificent views of Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and, weather and time permitting, the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge. Discover your inner Henry Hudson as the crew of the schooner shuts off the engines and lets the winds whisk passengers from sight to sight. Both cruises come with a complimentary beverage. Get your Groupon and set sail for serene sightseeing.
Remember to call or email by April 26, 2010, to reserve your spot.
- The yacht is very pretty - a glassed in room with banquettes and tables so every seat is a good seat. Even the bathrooms were nice! Our cruise had about 30 people, half groups and half couples, so you could mix if you wanted or find a corner to be alone in. The staff was great - very friendly and informative. – smdny, Citysearch
- Great date, nice and quiet when sailing past the statue of liberty [sic]. Beautiful view of the city...Highly advised. – ryanandhez, Zerve
