One thing I miss about the East Coast is constantly being able to go into NYC. I miss the skyline and the Hudson River. I miss the piers and the different people. Most of all I miss the Harbor Cruises. I’ve always feared that the boys will never get to see the side of NYC that I grew up seeing and knowing.
Next weekend, May 23rd, all that is changing. We’re going to be taking a road trip from Steubenville, OH to Wildwood, NJ, Atlantic City, NJ and then finally on Saturday we’re going to be on a Classic Harbor Cruise.
The boys will be able to see the skyline that I grew up seeing, they will get to experience the Hudson River the way I grew up experiencing it. The Captain of the Yacht – Manhattan will be giving a full history of the Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, and so much more! It will be an hour and a half of memorable fun!
I want you all ‘aboard’ on this fun too! Check out all the info below on Classic Harbor Lines:
Family Friendly Boat Tours of Manhattan Dedicated to helping locals and visitors alike enjoy the unique wonders of New York City, Classic Harbor Line hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a relaxing, inspiring and breathtaking sightseeing cruise through the waters we proudly call home. Our classic yachts – the Schooner Adirondack & Adirondack III and the Schooner America 2.0 (our sailboats), and the Luxury Yacht Manhattan (our motorized yacht) are reminiscent of the classic boats that cruised New York Harbor a hundred years ago.
We’ll be on their 1920’s style motor yacht: Yacht Manhattan. The name couldn’t be more fitting considering the type of cruise we’ll be on. What I’ll be looking forward to is the following highlights from the tour:
Highlights on this 1.5 -hour cruise include:
- A narrated tour by our captain
- Battery Park, South Street Seaport and the Financial District
- Governor’s Island, The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
- Parts of Brooklyn, Queens and the New York City skyline
- The Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges of the East River
