The Statue of Liberty is one of the most popular landmarks in New York City. If you want to get up close and personal with Lady Liberty and take stunning pictures of the surrounding Hudson while the sun sets the 1 hour Statue of Liberty sunset cruise is something for you. Starting in Lower Manhattan you leave the One World Trade Center and the amazing Manhattan Skyline behind you to explore the Hudson and cruise around the Statue of Liberty for the evening.

At twilight, the sights of New York are even more impressive! Sipping on a glass of champagne (included within the price), you will ride along the East River towards the Statue of Liberty which you will circle to give the perfect photo opportunity of the famous landmark. You will then then head back towards Brooklyn Bridge, from where you will be able to see Manhattan on one side, and Brooklyn on the other.
