Ah, New York, New York. A fast-paced city bursting with a natural energy that seemingly oozes from every street corner. With its enticing entertainment, beautiful parks, an abundance of shops and a vast choice of eateries serving food from all over the world, there is a softly whispered promise that floats around this city that there will never be a dull day in New York! The now thriving metropolis that is always a-buzz with a hive of activity was actually built at the mouth of a river, allowing easy access to the Atlantic Ocean as well as inland water resources.  Also home to an assortment of beautiful lakes, naturally the city has a rich boating history, so let’s take a look at three of the best places to enjoy a spot of messing about in boats in NYC. Anchor’s away!

Central Park Lakes

Central Park Lakes

It should be full steam ahead to Central Park, where keen boaters will find a choice of seven manmade lakes to enjoy. However, if admiring the lakes from the shoreline is too much for you and you want to jump on board a boat, the aptly-named Lake, which is the second largest lake in the park, is the best place to go. You can enjoy views of the nearby skyscrapers yet feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Boats can only be rented during the daytime, and it is possible to rent a boat from April to October, depending on the weather, for an affordable price of approximately $12 per hour.


Hudson River

Boating on the Hudson River is one of the best ways to take in the awesomeness of the city’s architecture. It provides a viewpoint that is located a few strides back from the busy streets, allowing visitors to take in entire buildings from afar rather than stretch your neck upwards from the ground floor. Taking a boat trip on the Hudson River as part of a guided tour is a great way to learn about New York’s architecture. It is a good way to go sightseeing away from the hubbub, and at around $22 for adults and $14 for children for a two-hour narrated cruise, it is an affordable way for families to see the city from a unique watery base.


Finger Lakes

 The Finger Lakes are located a few hour’s drive to the west of New York City and are so-called as they resemble sprawling fingers with their long, thin geography. Breath-taking natural scenery awaits boaters here, and as the set of 11 lakes are situated away from the city, they provide a quiet getaway that is great to explore as part of a guided tour boat, on a dinner cruise, in a kayak, in a pontoon or in a powered row boat.


Would-be water lovers can enjoy a variety of boat excursions around New York. With a choice of guided tour trips on ferries, dinner cruises on sail boats, casual trips on personal row boats, kayaks and canoes; it’s easy to see why so many people come to the city for a boating excursion in between shopping trips and admiring art galleries.

  1. same here. I like how you find the best places and guide us to them. I am definitely enjoying reading your posts. I just saw your blog. I’ll be sure to visit those places in NYC. The background is so beautiful.

  2. Hey Great blog! Beautiful places. I definitely would want to visit these places. I’m going out for cruise nest month in Blount small ship adventures. Its a small ship. I believe if its a small ship real exploration is possible.They have the freedom to enter the harbors. The cruise is from New York to Montreal. Well, they said the cruise mainly covers Caribbean, Central America,Mid- America, The Great Lakes and the North-East. I wonder whether they’d cover these places.
