Our family enjoyed a fabulous trip in the New York Harbor on the Clipper City ship, which was both fun and exhilarating. The view of the city and the Statue of Liberty was wonderful. Such a great experience!

Pretty basic sailboat ride around lower Manhattan and Lady Liberty. There is also a full bar on board which is nice.

Smooth sailing......a good time was had by all and would recommend to others. The crew and captain were running the boat so dont expect a history lesson and you will enjoy.

Sunday the 19th was the most spectacular day weather wise but the Clipper City was so fantastic that it would be great on a less perfect day!
Perfect boat, friendly crew, and views like you read about.

Terrific crew. Smooth sailing. Stayed on schedule. We had to head back a few minutes early due to weather and they offered the passengers a complimentary beverage from the bar. Very gracious and very professional.

The boat ride was beautiful. Views are amazing. Bring a camera with a good flash if you plan on an evening trip. Staff was very nice. Drinks are reasonable. They let you interact in the raising of the sails. I would sail again.

The sail was great! The ship is beautiful and the staff were very helpful. I would suggest that information/announcements about what we are seeing might be a nice addition.
