Midtown, Downtown and back around.

The NYC Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise is your ticket to explore all of New York City at your own pace in one day. Stopping at Midtown and Downtown Manhattan, the NYC Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise invites you to hop on and off at either of our two piers and create your own sightseeing itinerary. Your ticket gives you full day access to board our boat and tour the magical city of New York, all narrated by our highly trained and informative tour guides.

If you're trying to experience the energy and excitement of Midtown Manhattan, hop off at our Midtown stop and witness some of New York City's most impressive skyscrapers and the iconic Times Square. It's easy to spend hours getting lost in the magic and bustle of the center of the city! Walk a few steps from our pier at West 42nd St. and visit the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, explore the cultural scene of Hell's Kitchen or catch a last minute Broadway show.

Hopping off at our Downtown Manhattan pier in Battery Park? The history of the neighborhood dates back to 1623, when the Dutch settled at the tip of Manhattan, so there is no shortage of things to explore. Visit Castle Clinton, which is still standing today and used to welcome New York's earliest immigrants before Ellis Island was ever built. Walk or bike along the waterfront esplanade offering outstanding views, or visit nearby sights like One World Observatory, the September 11 Memorial & Museum and many more.

The number one sight to see in New York City is the beloved Statue of Liberty. On the NYC Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise, you'll get an up close view of Lady Liberty on the route from Downtown to Midtown.

With Circle Line's NYC Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Cruise, the opportunities are endless! There is no one way to explore New York City, so no matter where you hop off, take it all in and enjoy the ride!
