No matter where one stays, everyone who visits New York wants to admire the city’s iconic skyline. With New York Harbor, the East River, and the Hudson boasting some of the most rewarding skyline views, cruising the city’s waterways is a sure way to capture the skyline photos you want. NU Hotel and New York Water Taxi have teamed up to offer hotel guests access to exclusive hotel and water taxi packages. Here’s a look at New York Water Taxi’s pass options.
All-Day NY Water Taxi Access
New York City’s hop-on, hop-off bus tours are a popular way to experience the sights, sounds, and energy of the Big Apple. But why restrict yourself to the streets of New York when you can have a similar experience by boat, without the congestion of city traffic? With New York Water Taxi’s all-day access pass, you can board as many taxi boats as you’d like between the hours of 10am and 6pm.
Statue of Liberty Express
An efficient and comfortable way to see the Statue of Liberty, this is one of New York Water Taxi’s most popular tours. The 60-minute, narrated tour will teach you all you’d like to know about Lady Liberty and more. You’ll also have the opportunity to glimpse the statue up-close and pose for photos. Statue of Liberty Express boats depart from South Street Seaport at 11am, 12:30pm, 2pm, and 3:30pm.
VIP Statue by Night
One of the most exclusive ways to see the Statue of Liberty, this tour provides stunning bird’s-eye views of the Lady in the Harbor from the comfort of a chopper. After marveling at the Mother of Exiles and other iconic New York attractions from above the skyline, set sail on a one-hour evening cruise of the New York Harbor to admire the same sights from a different perspective. Helicopters take off from and land at the Downtown Heliport at Pier 6. Chopper rides last 15 minutes. Helicopter tour check-in begins at 6pm, and the entire air-and-sea experience lasts two-and-a-half hours.
