Circle Line Downtown - Our Featured Company
The Circle Line name is well established in the New York Harbor
sightseeing industry. Tourists and New Yorkers alike are familiar
with the three hour tours around Manhattan, as well as the shorter
Harbor Lights Cruises and Liberty Cruises. Some of the
landmarks covered by the Circle Line cruises include Ellis Island,
Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Williamsburg
Bridge, United Nations Building, Harlem River Bridge, Spuyten
Duyvil, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Intrepid and Grant’s Tomb. The
green hulled boats with the words “Circle Line” written in large
white letters across the topsides are as much a part of the scenery
of New York Harbor as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

Circle Line Harbor Cruises LLC is a subsidiary of Circle Line -
Statue of Liberty Ferry, Inc. It was established in 2003 and provides
harbor cruises aboard the luxury yacht Zephyr and Miss New York,
as well as high-speed rides aboard the Shark. Sometimes
referred to as Circle Line Downtown, Circle Line Harbor Cruises
announced in July 2007 that their boat Zephyr will have a lavish
karaoke room for the August 10, 2007 maiden voyage of the
musical extravaganza. They add that the karaoke cruise will feature
flat screen TV’s and state-of-the-art sound systems.

Circle Line is also a place to look for maritime employment
