I surprised my boyfriend on a 90 degree Friday with tickets. We had an amazing time "escaping" New York and seeing it from a new view. The staff was really friendly and accommodating. I would recommend the half-price tickets for a random afternoon...continued

It was a perfect day for sailing! The breeze was just right and learned some words like "jig" "boom" watching the crew do their putting up the sails very nice and cordial.. Though bring cash to buy drinks and if your afraid of water don't come!...continued

Ship and crew were great! The only reason I didn't give it five stars was that it was a bit too cold to really enjoy. The crew passed out blankets that helped a bunch. Might do it again in the summer.

Couldn't have been better. Met a lot of great people and just had the time of our lives.

I bought 2 tickets for two friends from Paris and it was thumbs up across the board. It was definitely a highlight of their Manhattan trip and certainly better than the 2 hour wait they endured to go up the Empire State building. They said the...continued

Reserving and buying the tickets (great price through GoldStar) was easy. Check in is at a small kiosk next to where the boats are docked on Pier 62. Day of sail was rather overcast, but still nice to be out on the water. Soft drinks and beer...continued

The crew was very professional. The ride was very smooth (we have weather to thank for that as well). The length of the trip was optimum, with enough slow passes at the important points on the route. I have taken 314 pictures in less than 2 hours!...continued

The greatest crew! So welcoming, they made for a lovely sail. My only wish is that they sail over for a view of the Brooklyn Bridge, but that's only a slight thing really. We loved it and will recommend it.

This is the best boat tour on Goldstar! I've been on it twice once at night and this time during the day. Both were great, but I prefer the day time because it was hard to take photos at night on my first trip. The boat and the city are beautiful,...continued

This is the second time on this ship this summer. More wind this day which made it a true schooner voyage. The crew is very nice and accomodating. It was everything it was described to be and it was worth the price. It is definitely something...continued

Very funny and friendly crew. Great local beer choices (included) and a really great way to see NYC from a whole new perspective. Note: this is not a guided tour, but you can ask questions. Love it.

We had a wonderful time! (We also had perfect sailing weather which made the experience even better.) The boat is beautiful; the crew was fantastic! A great way to see the city from a different perspective, whether you're a life-long New Yorker...continued
