The best way to witness the jewels of the New York Harbor, and to take in the stunning Manhattan skyline, is to take a ride on the ZEPHYR Statue of Liberty Express Cruise. Take in 400 years of NYC history -- including Brooklyn and Ellis Island -- with a tour that narrates the story of the harbor from the first settlement to today.
Then board a New York Water Taxi for convenient transportation to many other top spots of the city “a la carte” style -- meaning you can hop on or off at any of the designated points along the NYWT route. Other sites you won’t want to miss include the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Broadway, the Financial District, South Street Seaport, DUMBO, the Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island, the National Museum of the American Indian, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, and more.
As an added benefit, those with New York City Explorer Passes get Priority Boarding on this sightseeing cruise. You will have an excellent chance to secure seating on the coveted top deck (which is offered on a first come basis). The top deck of the Statue of Liberty Water Taxi offers stunning 360 degree views and is a great place to take photographs. The top deck is exposed to the weather, so make sure to dress appropriately.
Save on admission for a Statue of Liberty Water Taxi, plus New York City's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the New York Explorer Pass!
Present your New York City Explorer Pass at the NY Water Taxi Ticket Desk at South Street Seaport. There, you will receive a ticket for the ZEPHYR Cruise, in addition to a pass for the Hop-on Hop-off water taxi. Please retain both tickets.

Great cruise. Family friendly. Learned a lot of history. Only negative was the number of passengers who were rude and did not respect others' space.
