This was a lot of fun. It helped that the weather was perfect. Be sure to bring some sunscreen and maybe a snack, there is no food on board. A nice way to see New York.

Fabulous day out on the water. You can't beat this for value for money. A 2 hour sail on the harbor and a complimentary beverage. I will definitely be doing this again!

If you're lucky enough to catch it on a beautiful night, there's nowhere better to be in Manhattan. Doesn't matter if you're a tourist or you live a block away. The quiet of sailing, no blaring club music, a mellow, casual and friendly clientele....continued

This was a super pleasant experience. We had a great time. The crew on the boat was lovely. The weather couldn't have been more perfect.

This was incredible. The boat itself is beautiful. A good size group, where you don't feel crowded and you can move about the boat. Only 22 ppl give or take, plus two crew, the captain and bartender. The only thing this is missing is some...continued

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.

Had a great time! The crew was delightful, the Shearwater is small enough so you feel you're on a charter, the drink was a nice touch, the views are marvelous. A good time was had by all!!

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!

The day was beautiful, but windy with big gusts. Captain Dave took us sailing through NY Harbor, but felt the river traffic and the winds were not a good combo for safety, so down went the sails and on went the motor. Even so the trip was a real...continued

The sailing to the Statue of Liberty was fantastic but comign back to the pier, the crew just let the sailboat kind of hang out on the water for almsot 40 minutes instead of sailing to the Brooklyn Bridge or up the west side. Fantastic sailboat...continued

There is no better way to enjoy an afternoon in New York, than to step onto the deck of the Shearwater. The day couldn't have been better, bright spring day with a crisp breeze as we quietly sailed around the harbor. The crew is wonderful and...continued
