This boat ride was great! It was ninety minutes of pure relaxation as we rode the Hudson river. The staff members were all so cordial and competent. We saw the Statue of Liberty and the New World Trade Center as we rode the river. I would...continued

This is a lovely outing . -- a low key capable crew, and a serene experience on our busy river in the heart of our financial hub. We were lucky to have had perfect weather, but the sail would be fun even in less ideal conditions.

This was a great way to see the skyline from the water. The crew was VERY helpful and friendly. The seating was not the most comfortable, but it worked out ok.
My issue was with locating the venue. The map was not precise, and the place did...continued

Very cool - nice crew, beautiful ship. We didn't have a lot of wind the night we went, so we only made it out as far as Liberty Island, but my guests loved it. Go on the late night cruise only when it's very warm out: there's nowhere to hide...continued

We had a great time on the Shearwater. Helpful and friendly crew, beautiful boat and wonderful scenery. A relaxing way to tour New York Harbor.

We had a great time, but it was fairly crowded. We were surprised that drinks were not part of the cost as we read in previous reviews.

We had the best time. The crew was beyond courteous and friendly. Our voucher included two drink tickets each, and the price was so reasonable. We set sail on the most gorgous day. Bring a sweater because when the boat turns and the sun isn't on...continued

We really enjoyed the Shearwater Schooner sail. Our family of 4, all adults, would definitely recommend this excursion to differ from the hustle and bustle of most NYC events. Arrive early, and follow the pier around to the left to find the ship.

Will go again and bring a couple of friends with us. It was a relaxing, easy going, very pleasant afternoon. Perfect thing on a Sunday afternoon. Good for recharging for the week.

Would definitely recommend this to anyone - nice ride & beautiful views of Manhattan and NY harbor. Would definitely bring a light jacket. Our trip encountered a random heavy rainstorm for about 15 minutes which made it all the more fun. The crew...continued
