    What to Expect
    Aboard Hornblower’s hour-long International Sightseeing Cruise, you’ll enjoy unparalleled views of Manhattan’s iconic skyline and landmarks, including the Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, Governor’s Island and more!

    Our Cruises depart multiple times daily from Pier 15 and travel down the East River, through New York Harbor, up the Hudson and back along Lower Manhattan’s shoreline.

    Available for purchase is the New York in your Pocket Souvenir Guide, which will guide through all of the different landmarks. It is currently available in eight languages: English, Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.

    While onboard feel free to roam around the boat to take selfies and even grab a bite at the concessions stand.

    The website looked great and description of tour was perfect for our schedule so we booked and everything was fine until we got on the boat. The last time it was updated must have been in the 1980s, the seating situation was limited and there...More

    We took this cruise as part of the Hop On Hop Off tour package and it was total and complete chaos and it almost cost us nearly $500. We made reservations for the 3PM cruise, thinking we’d have more than enough time afterward for dinner...More

    The cruise itself was great but I went on it to learn from the water where everything was and what it was. We drifted along in complete silence. The tour guide was sick that day and apparently no one could get on the microphone and...More

    This cruise is a rip-off. Captain decided to skip both the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, miss the East River and return straight to point of departure/arrival. These were advertised and missed “at the Captain’s discretion”. After we complained we were told “this particular captain had...More

    Okay, so I thought the sightseeing cruise was good. It wasn’t terrible but it also wasn’t amazing. I feel as though it should have had something else. I also felt like it was too crowded. Something else that kind of bothered me was the voice...More
