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!

Great Crew, great experience, all around a fantastic time. We enjoyed it so much we went twice on the weekend. Safety first, seat belts and comfortable seating. Did I say it was a great crew? GREAT CREW, both on Friday evening and Saturday morning.

Amazing! I took this boat ride 15 years ago when 44 of us took our kids to Cooperstown for a baseball tournament. I always remembered how awesome it was and wanted to do it again. My husband lived in NY for 3 years back in the 90’s, and I told him we had to do this. We showed up 20 minutes early and were told there had to be 10 people on the boat for it to go out. Luckily, others showed up. We only had 8 but the captain took us out anyway. It was a blast! There was loud music, fast boat, and great sites. They took our pictures and gave us a fun ride! I highly recommend!

Our twins who turned 18 and complain about everything loved it! I worked, lived in the city and did many water events rank it at the top

Took a bunch of teenagers on this ride as part of my daughter's 16th b-day NYC trip. With zero tolerance to history lessons during summer break, this tour was exactly what doctor ordered. Just enough time was spent to take pictures by the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Entire trip was filled with thrill and excitement. Spraying people with water-guns is was really unnecessary. There is enough mist and natural splashing from the boat. If you state clearly in the beginning of the ride that you don't want to be sprayed, then they will probably won't do it.

Not only have I lived in NYC for over 10 years and have guests in often for which I always plan a lot of activities, but I had never done the Beast until now when some friends were visiting. It was so fun- wind in our hair, the crew, the vibe, the music- so fun loving and awesome. A great way to pick up the pace, literally, and see the city. Did not bother a friend who has sea sick/ motion sick tendencies. It's big enough and fast enough. You may bet a little wet, but it sure feels good on a hot day. The crew was so friendly and fun too!
