Our Charter Sights & Stops

We’ve put together a list of some of the fun you’ll typically see when you charter one of our amazing 4, 6 and 8-Hour Trips:

4-Hour Charter Stops & Sights

Our typical 4-hour charter includes the following sights and stops:

 

Leaving from Manhasset Bay, we steam past the fleet of Great Gatsby mansions on Kings Point. Then, we will head into the Long Island Sound where you can see across to New Rochelle, NY, while passing Hart Island.

 

While visiting neighboring City Island (a part of the Bronx), there are a handful of restaurants that we can pull up to, including the ever-popular City Island Lobster House. As we head west in the LIS you can see scenic views of Queens in the distance.

 

Passing under Throgs Neck Bridge, you can see one the SUNY Maritime College at Throgs Point. Shortly after passing under the Whitestone Bridge, we approach Flushing Bay which is home to the famous Mets Stadium at Citi Field. This is an excellent spot next to LaGuardia Airport where you can watch the planes landing & taking off, while watching the sunset over the horizon.

 

Rikers Island and it’s overflow prisoner barge comes right before getting to Big & Little Brother Island, and this begins the transition into the East River where we run alongside Randall’s Island and pass under Hells Gate & Robert F. Kennedy bridges. At this point, the Manhattan skyline opens up here in Hell’s Gate, leaving us at the north end of Roosevelt Island.

 

Typically, we’ll cruise south on the west side of the East River running between Roosevelt & Manhattan at this point and pass underneath the famous Roosevelt Island Gondola & 59th Street Bridge.

 

From the south end of Roosevelt, you can see the Chrysler, United Nations, & Empire State buildings. Moving east, you can see the Pepsi Cola sign in Long Island City, Queens then we’ll head back up the east side of the East River.

The 6-Hour Trip is a continuation from the 4-hr Trip, and we continue moving south down the East River passing along the FDR and occasionally catching the seaplanes taking off and landing from 23rd Street Seaport Station.

 

From here, we can see the Williamsburg Bridge, come around the bend, and gaze at another great view of Lower Manhattan, which opens up to a more prominent view of the World Trade Center and Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges.

8-Hour Charter Stops & Sights

The 8-hour trip completes all five boroughs, and it sees us continuing where the 6-hour trip left off.
