Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises - Educational Travel in NYC
This weekend I had an opportunity to visit the Circle Line Sightseeing Cruise Lines to see how they would fit into our offerings at Peak Performance Tours. Here is a quick synopsis of what excellent products they have to offer for student travel.
Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises has been providing a first-hand educational experience for children of all ages since 1945. Their friendly, experienced tour guides love to inform students about the ins and outs of New York City! Located at 42nd Street and 12th Avenue (Pier 83), Circle Line has a fleet of six unique sightseeing boats that serve as the perfect vessels to tour these eager students around Manhattan Island. One special feature is the unforgettable Circe Line Field Trip, designed specifically for schools and camps. On the Field Trip, children will learn both past and present facts about the 5 boroughs of New York City, the Hudson River, and New York Harbor. Each particular camp or school can choose from a variety of different tour lengths, as well. These lengths include our 75 or 90 minute Liberty Cruise, which sails up close to the Statue of Liberty, while informing the students about various NYC landmarks. Also available is the Classic 3- hour cruise, which allows the children to grasp the full educational experience that can only be found at Circle Line. Above all Circle Line tours emphasize the fun of learning about New York City!
Another exciting option that Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises provides for students is The Beast speedboat! For kids looking to enjoy a more fast-paced, thrill ride, it’s the ultimate sightseeing adventure in New York Harbor. As the fastest, wildest jet-propelled sightseeing boat in Manhattan, The Beast is always a hit with our student guests. When the boat reaches blazing speeds of up to 45 mph, our guests enjoy the different sights and sounds of the Big Apple in a New York minute.
A recent addition to the Circle Line family this summer is the Kid’s Cruise Series. The Kid’s Cruise series aims to provide a fun, safe environment where younger children can enjoy the wonders of learning. The Kid’s Cruise Kickoff Event on May 19th featured Grammy-winning performer Dan Zanes, and proved to be tons of fun for all who attended. Each cruise throughout the summer (June 2nd, July 7th, August 4th) has a wide variety of exciting activities planned that the kids will love!
This 75 minute cruise includes:
- Juggler, magician, and balloon artist
- Live musician
- Close up picture in front of Lady Liberty
- Kid-friendly, interactive tour guide (explaining fun facts about NYC!)
- Meet and greet with the Berenstain Bears Live
- Kid friendly food and drink for purchase
