New York Media Boat / Adventure Sightseeing Tours


My family had such a a wonderful trip yesterday. What a way to see the city from the water. So many things we can't do at the moment, so glad we found New York Media Boat. They took all proper precautions to make us feel safe. The kids are begging us to do it again!
Super knowledgeable and informative about New York and New Jersey. Nice comfortable ride. Took pictures of our family at all the stops! Super nice and accommodating.
Awesome fun. Captain Rob was great. Very much a New Yorker that loves his city.
Dieser Trip war das absolute Highlight unseres New York Urlaubs. Fantastische Ausblicke auf Manhattan/ Brooklyn und die Freiheitsstatue. Unsere Tourguide Eric hat und viele Informationen gelieferte und viele schöne Fotos von uns gemacht. Great guy!
Sehr zum empfehlen 👍🏻👍🏻🇺🇸.

Great fun touring the lower Hudson at a fast speed. Great opportunity for camera buffs. This media boat can get some great camera angles that the bigger boats can not. Captain was likable , knowledgeable and made sure that everyone had a good time. I highly recommend
Are you going to catch the Draken Harold departing?
Just Great ! Best experience of NY.
Taking this tour in a couple of weeks, are there any promo codes that I can get online for my tickets purchase?
So much FUN!
Unbeatable view
