The SHARK Testimonials

"Just got back from a great day in New York City with my granddaughter. The high point was the Shark, a terrific 30 minute high speed boat ride along lower Manhattan. Between the adrenaline rush, great views and a fun crew, what more can you ask for. This is the 3rd time I've taken the Shark and have never been disappointed. Looking for some "Fun in the City", give the Shark a try. As for me I'm already looking forward with my family to our next trip."-Sunflowerdays, TripAdvisor

"On a burning hot day, this is wonderful! Fast speed forward, over the Hudson, is refreshing and fun! Wonderful picture places and very speedy! In 30 minutes you have seen the best spots. If you don't have much time and you want to see Miss Liberty at her best, take the Shark."-Chantal Kortmann, TripAdvisor
