What You'll Get
A yacht cruise is a rare experience, now that most of the world's fleet has been commandeered for the filming of the Monopoly Guy's newest rap video. See Manhattan from the deck of one of the remaining few with today's Groupon: for $27, you get a three-hour yacht cruise along the New York Harbor from World Yacht (a $54.95 value). Your vessel begins boarding at 6 p.m. at Pier 81 on the Hudson River. World Yacht adheres to a standard yacht dress code, so men should don jackets or dress shirts and women should stick to business-casual attire. No T-shirts, shorts, sandals, or sneakers are allowed.
World Yacht's scenic, elegant cruise along the New York Harbor creates a picturesque evening for photo-snapping tourists and savvy locals alike. Once you've embarked upon one of World Yacht's three environmentally friendly yachts, you'll be privileged with a private table, access to the outdoor deck, and a complimentary glass of champagne, as you nonchalantly sail past the glittering Manhattan skyline. As the ship makes its circuit, you'll also get to behold the charm of the Village, the stately Empire State Building, and the seldom-seen "Kick Me" sign on the Statue of Liberty's back. Take a moonlight walk on the outdoor deck, or snuggle up inside and adore the sights through the boat's panoramic-view windows. A diverse line-up of live musicians and professional DJs will be on hand to shake hips and nod heads. And on pleasant evenings, you'll get to dine al fresco on chef Denis Weekes's full menu or à la carte menu (food not included with this Groupon) as you bask in the glow of the city.
Seasickness is rarely an issue, as World Yacht's boats are very stable, and the Hudson is normally docile and calm, except during Cloverfield mating season. There's no purchase limit, so treat the other stormtroopers in your galactic Civil War re-enactment society to a glamorous cruise with today's Groupon to World Yacht.
Must call 24 hours in advance to guarantee availability. Boarding begins 60 minutes prior to the cruise.

- A great way to see New York at night (even in the pouring rain.) Food was excellent (better than many restaurants) and the service was friendly and professional. – Ticketer, Trip Advisor
