"Love the boat it was awesome and the tour guide guy was super funny and informative. The bost was decorated in a father's day theme which was perfect for my husband. The trip to New York was his father's day gift. And the kids loved it ages 4, 11, and 16 they had a ball. I would suggest before spending money on the ticket check Groupon first much cheaper. And you will need a special ban (extra charge) to sit at the very top. But the photographer was great so we got to go out to take the photo. It's worth it and once again a great experience all around."..."

The capacity was much larger than I had realized from pictures, so a lot more folks onboard than I had anticipated, but not overcrowded. The location was also not as advertised so we had to change plans to board on the east side 35th pier instead of Chelsea pier. The company communicated the change was for the remainder of the year, so it’s not clear why they can’t update the website."..."
