Circle Line Downtown
Circle Line Downtown's fleet continues the tradition of ferrying passengers to and fro beneath the iconic skyline and renowned bridges of New York Harbor. Maintaining a fundamental respect for the environment, experienced captains pilot a flotilla of ships that boast low-emission engines, low-wake hulls, hospital-grade mufflers, and enough space on board to carry migrating geese. The knowledgeable seafaring crew zips guests over gentle crests for tours and specialty cruises designed for the adventuresome and those longing to know more about the awe-inspiring region.
New York Water Taxi and Circle Line Downtown
Love for New York's harbor, iconic skyline, and renowned bridges resulted in the introduction of New York Water Taxi's black-and-yellow-checkered fleet of vessels in 2002. The eco-conscious crew first began by chauffeuring passengers between Brooklyn and downtown, but the business quickly expanded as locals and tourists demanded to see all of New York's mammoth manmade beauty such as the city skyline, Brooklyn Bridge, and Ellis Island from its treasured natural waterways.
Partnered with Circle Line Downtown, the fleet doubled in capacity and continued the tradition of ferrying passengers to explore the best sights and sounds of the city from the spacious view of a top deck. Knowledgable and entertaining guides narrate tours while patrons can indulge in a cash bar that provides refreshments along the way. Popular touring sites include Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum, Times Square/Broadway, Hudson River Park, and South Street Seaport, to name a few. Statue Express and SHARK speedboat thrill ride grant passengers views of iconic sites, including the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island, and the former site of the World Trade Center.
