Experience the Best of South Africa in Five Fabulous Nights!

Circle Line Downtown’s Sunset Hidden Harbor Tours

Circle Line Downtown’s Sunset Hidden Harbor Tours® Explore the Unseen Heart of New York

Just beyond the shore of Manhattan and its frenetic pace is an equally-bustling world hidden from normal view – the dynamic working waterfront of New York Harbor.

Circle Line Downtown’s Sunset Hidden Harbor Tours® explores the largest and busiest maritime port on the Eastern seaboard in a 2-hour narrated tour aboard its luxury 3-level yacht, ZEPHYR. The reason why it is called “Hidden Harbor Tours®” is because much of the working waterfront of New York and New Jersey is hidden from normal view and can only be seen from the water on these special excursions. You’ll see cargo, oil and container ships and terminals, tugs and barges, giant floating dry-docks, ship repair yards and a graving dock, railroad car-floats and a stunning close-up view of the Statue of Liberty at sunset.
