I traveled with my children and their friends. We had a blast. They were actively involved in hoisting sails and taking turns steering the boat. I met some very nice people to chat with. The atmosphere was relaxed and laid back.

I'm from NY and see these boats sailing around all the time. I always wanted to go on one so my husband and I did this for my birthday. It was a hot day in NY so this was a great way to escape the heat a bit.
The crew was friendly and polite,...continued

I've been on this boat before and it is GREAT: quiet, beautiful, peaceful, fun. This trip, unfortunately, was not in any way quiet or peaceful. I suppose it was a "beer cruise" which was NOT indicated on goldstar. So, my party of 16, whom I...continued

It was a beautiful night to sail around lower Manhattan. It would have been even more beautiful if the wind cooperated more than it did. Nonetheless the sails moved us for part of the trip.
People were friendly, crew were busy and had a few...continued

It was a picture perfect day for a sail: no clouds in the sky, high wind, and a good seat with great views. Dexter sang my song to me (Georgia) to make me feel special,
then I received an extra drink ticket for Mother's Day! The crew was...continued

It was a wonderful day for a sail around the harbour. Balmy and bright( the day, and perhaps us too! :), my guests and I sipped margaritas and enjoyed the sights. The crew was hospitable and easy-going. It was a great way to spend 90 minutes.

It was definitely a relaxing ride. At first it seemed a little slow until the sails were hoisted, but all in all I enjoyed it.

It was relaxing and good views of the bottom of Manhattan and Statue of Liberty. The twilight cruise is nice cause you see the views in daylight, then at sunset, and then at nighttime too. Lots of good photos ops! The bathroom was actually pretty...continued
