No Thanks.

Way too overcrowded. People were pushing against the railing and I had my young son in front of me. Awful.

Unfortunately when Santa comes out kids tend to want to be near him. This is not a private experience.
Good Fun

Good fun , Santa was hilarious. Great views of Statue of Liberty and close up. Great value, hosts very good and crew very polite
Well worth the small cost!

Do not listen to the other reviews and book this tour! One of the cheapest things we did in NYC and one of the best. The crew on the boat was great and our main stew who was giving safety instructions and fun facts was engaging. Plenty of time to see the views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan downtown skyline. Sure, the Santa is not going to b e cast as a Santa in an Academy award winning film, but he was fun and stopped to take photos with everyone who wanted one -- the kids on board loved it. The boat has an indoor and outdoor, in case weather is inclement. If taking an Uber or Lyft, put Pier 36 and/or the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in your phone for the destination -- the boat takes off from right behind there.
Evening boat ride to Lady Liberty!!
, Dec 2021
Boat ride was lovely! We did ours in the evening it was beautiful to see the city lit up!! We got nice and close to Lady Liberty!! Only thing that I would change is the recording that guided us through the ride was off a bit and verbally was off a bit as well. Also, the staff asking for tips. The only staff that did really anything to get a tip was the bartender. I cleared off our table and the verbal guide was a recording. All in all it was a lovely experience! Would do this again!!
False advertising

This was marketed at a holiday cruise with Santa and other holiday festivities. There was nothing festive about this except a couple cheap wreaths on the boat. Was basically a basic boat trip to see the Statue of Liberty. The Santa that came out for 5 mins was a young kid and it was super awkward. False advertising.
Al llegar al lugar el...

Al llegar al lugar el tour no era de Santa era un tour para ir a la estatua de la libertad el lugar muy lejos de manhattan peligroso tambiénpara llegar. Le preguntábamos a las personas que estaban en la fila sobre este tour y nos decían que no, que ese tour no tenía a Santa. Entramos para confirmar y efectivamente no era lo que pensábamos así que nos bajamos y nos fuimos. Perdimos el dinero y mis hijos desilusionados. Ya cancelé el de la estatua de la libertad porque es en el mismo lugar y de verdad que muy peligroso y alejado. Muy decepcionada ojalá me devolvieran por lo menos el dinero invertido. Para el regreso pedimos uber ya que nos dijeron es un área peligrosa.

Santa is on the cruise but we bring him out after we take off to surprise the kids and excite them with holiday music. You refused to join the tour as the manager explained Santa will come out.
