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

It's quite a different experience to sail in this harbor on a sailboat vs a ferry boat. It was so peaceful. We got to help raise the sails if we wanted...hard work! Note this is not a tour boat, so there is no commentary on what islands or bridges...continued
