NEW YORK BY LAND & SEA
This unique combination tour offers the best perspective of the Big Apple, by land and sea. Make your way to lower Manhattan stopping at the historic 18th Century South Street Seaport, replete with historic tall ships, museums, exhibits and re staurants. Here you will have free time to independently shop, sightsee or snack of restaurants that fit every taste and budget. Then board the ZEPHYR, a brand new, custom-built luxury catamaran for a 60-minute tour cruising New York's calm waterways. You will experience unparalleled views of New York's spectacular skyline while your captain expertly navigates the waterways. Your tour guide points out the sites and provides informative commentary along the way as you cruise under the historic Brooklyn Bridge, and see the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, World Financial Center and the famous boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island in the distance. You will also catch a glimpse of Ellis Island, immigrant gateway to America and the State of New Jersey in the distance. Have your cameras ready for the photographic highlight of the trip as our captain briefly pauses in front of the Statue of Liberty (guests DO NOT get off the vessel). Following your scenic cruise, you will re-board the coach as your tour guide provides commentary on the scenic drive back to your ship.
