Shark reported in New York Harbour

The SharkA gleaming monster is cruising the waters of New York Harbour. Each day, the great white (and blue and green) Shark carries off hordes of giddy, screaming people, young and old. Lurking in plain sight, the Shark is capable of bringing grown men to tears – tears of laughter that is. Step aboard the Shark Speedboat and take a tour with teeth! The 30-minute thrill ride speeds around the horn of southern Manhattan giving riders a rush of wind and splashing water. Passengers breeze by The Statue of Liberty, stop for a photo opp and zip by again to catch once-in-a-lifetime views of famed landmarks including the historic Battery Park, the World Financial Center and Ellis Island, the gateway to America for millions of immigrants. The splashy tour features music and fun for up to 135 passengers. Student and corporate groups welcome.

  1. sounds like a fun way to see the manhatten skyline, i did a similar trip in sydney harbour and it was great fun, lots of thrills and spills with a fabulous backdrop.

  2. Sounds great fun! Would definitely opt for this, we did the ferry which was a good value way to get out on the water and see the statue of liberty. This wasn’t an option then though, would have been a great laugh.
