The BEAST Speedboat Ride - one of the most thrilling things you can do in NYC that is totally legal. This custom-built, 70-foot speedboat flies towards the Statue of Liberty at around 45 mph, with lots of twists, turns and splashy action. It's an exciting tour of NYC, to say the least. Wet suit recommended but not required, just ask our BEAST Handlers about “The Pool”…they’ll be happy to help you find a good seat!

Fun on the Hudson
Gareth_J, 30-10-2022
This is a great fun thing to do in New York. Forget the slow boats up the Hudson this is the best way to see the statue of liberty and the Manhattan skyline form the water. Suitable for all ages who enjoy a bit of excitement. Plenty of chance to get the pictures you want aswell
This was great! Tank and...

This was great! Tank and Diesel were the two people who worked the boat and they were awesome! They provided a lot of information, Tank helped with group photos during the boat ride and at the Statue of Liberty, and he was very funny!
The Beast rocks!
