Aboard Bateaux New York‘s boat Celestial for a sunset dinner cruise

We’ve seen the Celestial cruising around the harbor many times from our kayaks, but this is quite a different experience ;-)

Plenty of opportunities for selfies with the Manhattan skyline

There go our kayaking buddies!

  1. Looks fantastic! I’ve had dinner on one of the bateau in Paris. Perhaps New York next?

    • The company says that the Celestial was indeed modeled after the dinner boats that one sees in European waterways—Paris does come to mind! The Celestial is basically a flat, floating restaurant with huge windows that provide a great view. There are plenty of more traditionally shaped boats in New York Harbor that also do dinner cruises, but the experience there isn’t quite the same…
