Definitely a nice, relaxing ride. I don't think it's worth $40, but for the $7 we paid on Goldstar, it was a great deal.

Even on an overcast day, the crew was delightful and friendly and the sail was lovely. Great to take guests visiting the city!

My boyfriend and I went sailing up the Hudson, I thought it was great. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The boat desk was clean, it was a beautiful day. I would def recommend this to others.
