    What to Expect
    Set sail to New York City’s waters on board the Shearwater Classic Schooner. Departing from North Cove Marina at Brookfield Place, this unique sightseeing voyage explores New York Harbor with outstanding views of the Big Apple’s best attractions.

    Shearwater is a classic Newport-style schooner yacht, launched on May 4, 1929, but only recently recognized as a national landmark in 2009.

    Choose from one of three afternoon sails, enjoying beautiful views of New York City landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Governors Island, plus the New Jersey and New York City/Manhattan skylines.

    Celebrate a special occasion and/or get a unique view of New York City from the water.
