Don't waste your precious time trying to make reservations-- no one ever responds. Don't rush to arrive 30 minutes before scheduled sail time-- they do not set up to check in passengers until 20 minutes before scheduled sail. Organization seems to be very unprofessional in...More

Wow what a great experience. Sailing down the Hudson River on a beautiful sail ship. Wind in our hair and the spray in our faces. Plus a really close up view. Lovely crew couldn't do enough. Highly recommended.

On a particularly hot (unseasonably) afternoon in NYC, it occurred to us to take a boat ride. We headed down to the Battery area (North Cove Marina) -- thinking we could always take the Staten Island Ferry if we couldn't get on a boat. Do...More

We went on the second sailing of the season so we knew the weather may not be ideal. It was windy - too windy to sail as a matter of fact. Because of the choppy water we couldn't really stand up and move around so...More

After the hectic pace of sightseeing in New York this was a perfect chilled activity. Lucky to have a warm afternoon but a bit much wind to sail the whole time and drink wine too. The boat under engine was fine as well. The wine...More

Our junior high tour group had the opportunity to see NY Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, and the bridges by sail boat. What an awesome experience! We had beautiful weather, so that certainly helped, but the crew was great - very personable.

Lovely harbour cruise on schooner yacht under sail. Sails close to Liberty Island for great pictures of the Statue. Great way to spend a sunny afternoon.

We went on a pretty unfortunate day. The winds were high so we were expecting a choppy day. On arrival we found the boat and saw there was a good few people milling around. We expected that it would be that a few were waiting...More

This was one of my favorite activities in NYC. Even with a threat of rain, we had a great time. We sat up near the front of the boat, close to the coolers. Alcohol is available as well as soda and water. The staff was...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
