  • A fast-paced 30-minute speedboat ride to view the iconic Statue of Liberty
  • An unforgettable adventure ride featuring live guides, hot tunes, and a boat painted to look like a shark!
  • If you'd prefer your pulse not to pound, nor get splashed with sea spray, we strongly advise taking one of the other boats. SHARK is NOT for you
  • All passengers need to be at least 1m tall to tangle with the SHARK Speedboat Thrill Ride. Not advised for pregnant people either


For some, a little poky float out to see the Statue of Liberty doesn't quite tick the box, the box marked 'RADICAL, OCEAN PREDATOR-THEMED ADVENTURE'! But this 30-minute high-speed trip sure does! If you're a thrillseeker , then SHARK is for you.

Music, adventure, speed - that's what this ride is all about. This is real pulse-pounding excitement, so leave grandma behind (unless she's also an adventure enthusiast) and hop onboard SHARK. Hitting speeds of 60 km/h, SHARK is a powerful speedboat on a mission: to rocket you around the tip of Manhattan and out out to the Statue of Liberty at the fastest speeds possible.

But it's not about getting it over quickly. A local guide narrates the journey, pointing out sites like the Brooklyn Bridge and One World Trade Center, as they pass by in a blur.

And there's time for photos near the Statue of Liberty. Tour staff will happily snap pictures of you, your friends, grandma, and the rest of the shark gang, with Lady Liberty in the background.

It's superfast, but also superfun, and - except for pregnant women or children under a meter tall, who aren't allowed to join - this is the best way to see the Statue of Liberty. Especially if you'd rather go big than go home.
