Our Translation app is available on smart phone devices. Languages include Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Italian, & Chinese. Listen to a guided audio tour in the language of your choice as you sail down the Hudson to see all of NYC’s famous buildings and landmarks from the water. This audio tour will automatically advance as the boat moves so all you have to do is select your language and press play. It only works while you’re moving on the water. Download the app through Google Play Store or Apple Store. Guests are encouraged to bring their own headphones/earbuds as not to disturb fellow passengers. Transcripts are also available through the app.
