Whether Long Island is your home or you’re just visiting – you have yet to see the beauty of the North Shore until you’ve seen it onboard The Skyline Princess. Our lovely 120-foot yacht has been cruising along the North Shore since 1993, and our experienced and friendly staff will be sure that whether this is your first-ever cruise of the North Shore, or your hundredth – it’s unforgettable.
The Skyline Princess has three climate-controlled levels and sails in all types of weather. When you’re taking a private full ship charter from Port Washington, NY or Connecticut with us, you’ll be served the freshest cuisine, prepared by our own chef the day of your event in the ship’s very own galley (kitchen). Our staff will serve you soft drinks, coffee, tea, or a cocktail from our bar complete with premium liquors. Our ship has the highest passenger capacity of any yacht in New York based outside of Manhattan, so there’s plenty of space to stretch out, relax with your family, and host your special event or dinner cruise in NYC or on the North Shore.
One of the questions we are frequently asked on our North Shore Charter cruises is “what are some of the sights I will see on this cruise?” Depending on minor factors such as cruise length, there are a ton of exciting things you will see on your cruise from Long Island or Connecticut.
For starters, the North Shore of Long Island is host to many of the most beautiful sights across New York Harbor. You’ll see historic lighthouses and witness the giant mansions of the Gold Coast of Long Island across towns such as Whitestone, Great Neck, King’s Point, Manhasset and Sand’s Point. You’ll also have the opportunity to see the King’s Point Merchant Marine Academy and SUNY Maritime College.
The Skyline Princess will sail past interesting sights such as Riker’s Island, LaGuardia Airport, and The Brother Islands. You’ll get to see Astoria Park and Hell’s Gate, and sail around The Whitestone and Throgs Neck Bridges. The Execution, Stepping Stones, Fort Schuyler and Fort Totten will all also be visible from your North Shore charter.
