About This Experience

General Information hide

Discover the Big Apple in style as you fly above New York City in a helicopter and then enjoy a gourmet dinner on a boat during an entertaining Dinner Cruise!

The fun begins near Manhattan’s South Street Seaport where you will board the Helicopter and enjoy a 12 to 15 minute tour of New York from the air. From the Statue of Liberty to Central Park you will enjoy a bird’s eye view of New York City. Upon landing, you will head to Chelsea Piers on the West side of the City. Here you will be greeted by the Captain as you board the ship for your three-hour Dinner Cruise. Throughout the cruise you will sail South down the Hudson River where you will enjoy views of lower Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Jersey City Skyline’s. After you enjoy your meal, step out on the deck with a cocktail and have your picture taken when the ship pauses in front of Lady Liberty! Then you can dance the night away or simply enjoy the New York Harbor views.

So whether you are looking for the ultimate date night, a unique gift or the best NYC Tour, this Helicopter Ride and Dinner Cruise is the Ticket!
