Are you thinking about visiting New York City? If you want to go off the beaten path, get off from land and go on the water then. Seeing NYC from a different perspective is what you’ll get when you book a voyage with Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises.
What can you expect from the best Hudson River tour company in the country?
A tour-de-force by Circle Line
A two-hour tour with Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises covers all the bases. From the Hudson River, the boats head outward, and then take the a direct route to the East River, head northward, and then ends up on the other side of the Hudson River. A typical cruise brings tourists completely around the Hudson and under the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge, and the George Washington Bridge.
Of course, you’ll be cruising by the world-famous Statue of Liberty, and seeing the famous bridges of the Big Apple up close. But that is not all there is to see. You will be seeing many other famous sports in the city from a place that is not familiar with many other tourists. You will see New York City from all angles. Seeing the city from outside gives you a wider perspective, and gives you a better idea why NYC is one of the key tourist destinations in America today.
An unparalleled view of NYC landmarks
The iconic landmarks of NYC are hard to miss even if you’re on the water. Some of these landmarks tower above the skyline, and a 90-minuted sightseeing cruise is quite enough to provide tourists with a unique perspective of what the city has to offer. There is no better place to see them from but Circle Line’s state-of-the-art ships.
Seeing the Manhattan skyline from the Hudson River is quite exhilarating. Compared to seeing the sky-high buildings from the streets, or from an elevated view, looking at the impressive lineup of skyscrapers from a distant makes one appreciate the massive achievements in design, architecture, and engineering that they represent. Some of the important landmarks to see are the Empire State Building, the art-deco Chrysler Building, and World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.
The water cruise also brings tourists close to Ellis Island in Upper New York Bay, and a view of the National Museum of Immigration from the boat. The island is a part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. The cruise brings tourists close to Liberty Island as well. Seeing the Statue of Liberty up close is an overwhelming experience for first-timers. The 93-metre tall Lady Liberty was a gift of France to the United Stated, which was bequeathed in 1886. While the statue is visible at quite a distance from other areas of the city, having an experience similar to the first immigrants that arrived in boatloads centuries ago makes tourists appreciate the very foundations of American culture.
