A picture perfect day in NY! Friendly crew, complimentary drink, comfortable vessel! We brought along cheese and crackers which added a nice touch. Would like to try an evening sail next time.

If you want to calm down and cool yourself after crazy day in NYC you have to take an opportunity and aboard to this historic Schooner. Don’t thing too long if you spend the money right – just buy the ticket and enjoy!
