It sailed from the South Steet Sea Port to near the Statue of Liberty mostly by motor. You need have enough clothes.

This is not a 'sightseeing' tour, just a nice, peaceful sail around the NYC Harbor. I have seen the city from this vantage point on numerous occasions, so for me, it was... continued

Very relaxing cruise, the ship has a bar and the crew on the boat is quiet - meaning you can enjoy the view without interruption.

This was part of a Mother's Day gift for my mom and aunt. They still live in New York, while I moved to L.A. more than 30 years ago. I still try to find things for them... continued

Great cruise. They bought this tall ship on ebay and saved it from rotting in a bay. Cool crew, but the best was Molly at the bar.

Nice, relaxed, leisurely sail through the harbor. Went around the Statue of Liberty and into the Hudson. No commentary - Just sailing.

Went on Memorial Day - was a bit crowded, but everyone was very agreeable. A very relaxing sail up around Governor's island, over to the Statue of Liberty and back.

It was great fun, and so cheap it's a steal. Although our boat was full of out-of-towners, we thoroughly enjoyed the ride as much as they did.

A lovely ship on a beautiful day, all at a reasonable price. A full cruise but even full, plenty of room for everyone and not overly crowded. Great full bar. Crew was delightful and scenery was spectacular.

Cruise was well done. People are not kidding when they say no matter how hot it is, you should bring a sweater or jacket. It was almost 90 and mid sail we hit a cold... continued

Boat was a good size. Crew was friendly and helped to make the trip enjoyable. Would have liked it to be a little longer. Complimentary drink would have been nice.

I liked it but there was no commentary done by the staff and most of the work was done by the motor and not the sails. So I feel I was mislead. However, it was lovely way to start a Sunday on a beautiful day.
