I preferred other sail trips taken with out of town guests. Reason? Sails included historical info etc. This is sail only. We attempted to converse with the captain re:... continued

I took the 2:00 and it was beautiful, very peaceful out there but I was glad I brought my fleece top. We got a chance to help hoist the sail which made me feel part of... continued

I was disappointed with this experience. I should have heeded the advice of the other reviews. Unless you really love sail boats this is not a good trip to take out of... continued

I went to the sunset cruise and had a great time. The crew is very friendly. They have an open bar and clean bathrooms, the boat is spacious and the ride was very pleasant.

It was a very special experience for my brother and his family as well as me, a local resident. The ship crew were friendly, anxious to please and very interactive.

It was absolutely the most perfect summer day for sailing. The boat was large enough for everyone to find a seat at their preferences, and it moved just at the right... continued

Lovely idea -- a sunset sail, even though the sun sneaked down without a blaze this evening, to see the lights of lower Manhattan (and the new Liberty Tower) was... continued

My mom went on this trip with her husband. they loved it. Very relaxing. They asked a crew member to tell them about the sites, otherwise there is no guide. They have a full bar, and plenty of seating. Roughly about 50 people per trip.

The boat is really nice, but the whole experience was a little boring, because it went from Pier 17 to the Liberty island, where it stopped and waited until it was night... continued

The day was beautiful, the ship very nice, and put it all together, it was a wonderful way to spend 90 minutes cruising lower Manhattan. Would definitely do this again.

This was a really nice boat ride. There wasn't much wind so we mostly used the motor. But, it was still a beautiful day and we saw a lot of sites. There are great views... continued

Took the sunset sail and had a great time. The crew were very friendly. The only downside was that it got so cold at night that by the end we just wanted to get off the water, but thats not their fault, just need to bring a better jacket

Very relaxing cruise on a beautiful evening. Would not have enjoyed it in the rain though (sails rain or shine). Great crew, nice bar. Seating a little sparse as quite a few had to sit on the floor. Would highly recommend.
