This thrill ride isn’t for everyone. But if you crave speed and don’t mind the occasional splash of water, this SHARK was made for you. Combining speedboat thrills with a high-speed tour of NYC's landmarks, learning has never been so fun.

If walking around Downtown New York City doesn’t offer you enough of a fast-paced thrill, perhaps the only thing that will satisfy you is speeding across the harbor in a huge speedboat… that’s painted like a shark.

Yes, Circle Line Downtown’s SHARK Speedboat Thrill Ride is by far among the most awesome ways to see the city. Fly by those highly recognizable landmarks; the salty wind whipping through your locks as you hum the theme song from Jaws to terrify passengers on the boats you’re speeding past. The sightseeing is fantastic, but the speed of this boat ride is its main attraction. It’s like being on a 135 passenger jet-ski just off the shore of Manhattan. Think harbor scene in Hitch, but in a much larger shark-vessel, and there’s no chance of Will Smith accidentally knocking you off the boat …unless you really luck out.
