The Beast Speedboat: New York City's only Jet-Powered Speedboat

The Beast is New York's only jet-powered speedboat! It is operated by Circle Line Sightseeing on 42nd St and departs from pier 83. The Beast is a thrill seeking, adrenaline pumping ride that sees you tearing down the Hudson River to the Statue of Liberty. It is a fun and exciting way to experience all New York has to offer from the water, taking in the beautiful New York City skyline from all angles, speeds with even a couple of spins and 360's thrown into the mix.
