Manhattan Architecture Yacht Cruise

(*)(*)(*)(*)(*) 37 | New York City, United States
tour.from $86
2 hours 45 minutes(Approx.)
Mobile ticket


Step aboard the teak decks of your elegant 1920s style yachts, the Manhattan and Manhattan II, and enjoy a 2.75 hour cruise while learning about NYC's architectural landmarks from the water. The "Around Manhattan" tour narration, provided by members of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) NYC chapter, is general enough for visitors yet detailed enough for the locals.

Experience a comfortable and unique tour through the Hudson, East, and Harlem Rivers from a glassed-in observatory cabin, which has sliding windows for a fresh breeze, or wander to an open bow for more unobstructed views of the surrounding sites. On this cruise, guests will circumnavigate the island of Manhattan (passing under all 18 bridges) while taking in monuments, architecture, parks and infrastructure with narration by a member of the AIANY Chapter.

This trip was the highlight of our visit to New York and one of the best tours we've experienced world-wide in the past several years. Superb commentary and expertise on the architecture of New York from the water starting from the dawn of the "skyscraper" to the ultra-high buildings being built now. Cannot recommend it strongly enough, it was a treat, for sure!

We did this tour on a nice sunny day. The views were terrific and we got many nice photos. Drinks and a substantial snack were provided during the cruise around Manhattan. Unfortunately, my drink crashed to the ground when the boat his a small wave but the crew graciously provided a free replacement, which was very, very nice of them. They couldn't have been nicer about cleaning up the mess

The cruise was more than I anticipated. Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgable. We learned about way more than the usual suspects. I brought 2 locals with me who also found the tour informative.

We had beautiful weather. It was a great tour whether you just want to circumnavigate Manhattan or learn about the beautiful buildings that make up the NYC skyline. Having an architect as the guide was a real plus. It was nice to enjoy an adult beverage and have a healthy snack during the trip. We learned a lot and got some great photos. I would do this tour again.

My son lives in Queens, so I have done just about every typical touristy thing there is to do in NYC. My husband and I did an architecture boat tour in Chicago last year and it was a highlight of our visit, so when I saw this as an option I decided to book it for something different. It did not disappoint. First off, The boat itself is beautiful. It has glass everywhere making the views imp
