Relaxing sail in the harbor and out to the Statue of Liberty - no talks - just peaceful sailing and a free drink. Had a great time.

This was an extremely relaxing cruise through the harbor and around the statue of liberty. No pressure, no talk, just relaxed sailing. It was wonderful.

Great family outing on a beautiful day! Even though we dressed warmly, the blankets provided by the crew were much appreciated.

We had an awesome time. The schooner has been fabulously reconstructed; you can tell from the details that the owner is proud of his schooner. The sunset behind the Statue of Liberty was breathtaking. Thanks!!

The full moon sail was absolutely amazing. My girlfriend and I did it for our anniversary. I may have done more romantic things in my life, but I am hard pressed to remember any of them.
