Was good fun and worth it for the discount price. Wouldn't be worth it if it was full price.

We took our 3 kids (1, 5, 9) and they all had a great time! It was a very warm day, but still got windy and cooler on the water. We enjoyed that afternoon very much.

I thought it was ok. I was hoping for something a little more exciting. It took about a half hour for us to actually get out of the port then we did a quick loop in front of the Statue of Liberty and came back. The boat is nice, but we ended up...continued

It was ok, nice sail around the harbour taking in the sights and enjoying the cool fresh air. 75mins in which there is no hustling and bustling to get from point A to point B, I sat and listened to the waves lapping against the sides of the boat,...continued

My husband and 2 grandsons,ages 12 and 14 accompanied me on the Sail NY Harbor tour.
The only thing we enjoyed was the raising and lowering of the sails. We were told by the captain that we would be sailing to New Jersey and we would see the...continued

The boat's lovely. I was attracted by the fact it's a sailing ship so thought it'd make a change as I had overseas to entertain. The crew were nice and friendly. We had great weather and it was really relaxing. I'd say the downside is that it...continued

Aside from a nice boat ride on a summer's day this was a great disappointment. When we reserved it was stated that there would be historical commentary on this amazing harbor. Not a word was said about this harbor and the sights we were passing...continued

It was a great time and a beautiful day. If you go in the summer, be sure to wear a hat, that sun is brutal! The sails were wonderful and we got some great pictures of the Statue of Liberty.

It was so much fun and the crew really mingled with the people on board. It was very exciting and it gives a great view of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn bridge.

Nice relaxing ride on a perfect sunny day. Worth every penny of the Goldstar price. Scenic views. Great photo opportunities.

The crew was very fun and personable. They played Bob Marley during the sail, PERFECT sailing music. The drinks were great. Plenty of seats. The boat is exactly the same as this pic. There were couples and families and friend groupings. We sailed...continued

The sail really was not much of a sail but it was good to be on the water on such a fine day. Yes the sails were raised and picked up a little wind but the engine was constantly powering the boat and the diesel smell was strong. The crew was...continued

Took the Sunset Cruise and it was fabulous !

Crew was friendly and very welcoming ... The length of the trip was perfect and was exactly what we was looking for ...

Hats off to the Clipper City ..

While the ship is beautiful and the staff friendly. The actual route was extremely disappointing. It started off well enough, the ship headed directly south towards the Statue of Liberty. Then...well that's it. It lingered in that part of the...continued

Went on the 4:30p Friday afternoon sailing. What a great way to start a weekend. Took my nephew from Minnesota and he also loved it. It is great for a local to just relax and get a different perspective on the city and also a great way to show...continued

We left on time, no hassles, and the crew were great. We could help put up the sails if we wanted to, and it wasn't crowded, even though it was sold out. Of course it didn't hurt that it was a full moon and the weather was perfect.
