NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The New York City Lights Cruise is hosted by architects and members of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIANY).  Experience a comfortable and unique trip through the Hudson, East and Harlem rivers from the climate-controlled and enclosed back-deck observatory or wander to the outer decks for fresh air and sunlight with a complimentary beverage in hand. Guests are treated to a complimentary beer, wine or champagne from the bar & light snacks as well as soda, water, tea and coffee!

Why We Go: A Harbor Lights Cruise is the perfect outing for NY tourists who want a unique and memorable evening without the fast pace of Manhattan nightlife.

  • Gorgeous Views: Sail down the Hudson River on a New York City Lights Cruise and marvel at the spectacular illuminated NYC skyline. A 1.5 hour Harbor Line Lights Cruise affords you picturesque views of the dazzling lights of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, and the Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges lit up against the night sky.
  • Complimentary Refreshments: What better way to take in the splendid views of NYC at night than with a glass of champagne, beer, or any of the other complimentary libations offered on your New York City Lights Cruise. Food is not served on most Harbor Lights Cruises (the Holiday Cruise offers unlimited cookies), but guests are welcome to bring their own picnic dinners or snacks.
  • Serenity Now: Unlike some cruises or tours of NYC, Harbor Line Lights Cruises are not continuously and loudly narrated, providing guests a relaxing and unobtrusive sightseeing experience. For those visitors who want the ultimate peaceful and personal sightseeing excursion, the Champagne City Lights Cruise is without any narration at all.

Inside Knowledge: Accommodating 50-75 guests on the Holiday and Champagne Lights Cruises and 49 guests on the Full Moon Sail, Harbor Lights Cruises provide the intimacy of small yachts and the fun of large cruises without feeling rowdy or impersonal.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Dress in Layers: A warm, sunny Manhattan afternoon can turn into a brisk evening on the Hudson River, so come prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws your way. No need to freeze if you forget a jacket - there are blankets aboard Harbor Lights Cruise boats.
  • Do Book in Advance: New York City Lights Cruises often sell out, so buy your tickets more than a week in advance to assure your spot on-board.
  • Don't Fear the Rain: If showers are in the forecast for your NY City Lights Cruise, there's no need to cancel your excursion. The Holiday and Champagne City Lights Cruises feature a completely enclosed aft-deck area covered with a roof, and the Full Moon Sail has raincoats available on-board for guests.
  • Don't Go Overboard on Booze: While complimentary alcoholic beverages are served, Harbor Line sailing excursions are not boisterous booze-cruises.
