    Voucher information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this). At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

    Boats can get very full and therefore it is advisable to arrive 30 minutes prior to the departure time to get the best seats. Occasionally boats do fill up and customers will be required to wait for the next boat.

    Boats can accommodate 64 or 149 people depending on the vessel.

    The date you give at the time of booking/date on your voucher is flexible. You may take the cruise at any time during your stay in New York.

    Boats operate rain or shine. All of our boats have indoor seating so regardless of the weather outside, you will be comfortable inside the climate-controlled cabins. If the Captain determines that weather conditions make it unsafe to sail, the service may be terminated by the Captain at any time. If you reserved a ticket for a boat that is cancelled, we will work with you to exchange your ticket for another boat.
