Great weather, nice little scenic tour. Unlimited beverages including mimosas! Food was ok, nothing life changing. The crew was great, very friendly however the seating arrangement was not at all comfortable. We would definitely do it again though

Last summer three of us booked this event and this year six of us enjoyed a beautiful Sunday sailing around Manhattan. We actually had eight people wanting to attend but could only get six tickets. It is well worthwhile and we will book this...continued

My dad treated my mom to this cruise for their anniversary. While they were excited for the trip, their expectations for the food was low and they were blown away by the selection and quantity of food and drinks. It didn't hurt that it was a...continued

Our sail was to celebrate my husbands birthday ( I gave it to him as a gift) and we went with friends who made the day more special. We arrived early to secure good seating...at least 45 minutes before boarding and we were first in line on our...continued

The boat was overcrowded, not enough seating and the seating that was available was uncomfortable. The boat itself was not conducive to eating and the food was mediocre. Totally not worth the Goldstar price let alone the full price. Do not waste...continued

The cruise was really nice. The food was good - salads, hummus, mini sandwiches, fruit, danishes, that were accompanied by mimosas or other beverages. The ride was quite smooth, although I wish the seats had backs. We went into the harbor, saw...continued

The staff is awesome, caring and accomadating. The only thing I wish I would of know ahead of time, is that for someone that doesn't eat bread there was not a lot of food choices.

This brunch cruise was excellent! There was plenty of food and drinks and it was wonderful to pass right in front of the Statue of Liberty. The crew was friendly. My family had a terrific time. Would highly recommend this trip.

This event was more than I expected! The boat is very well cared for. The crew is friendly, helpful and engaging. I am still surprised by the quality of the buffet and how well it was laid out on the boat. There were endless glasses of...continued

This was a really nice way to treat family from out of town to a great morning on the harbor. The food went beyond the average selection for a brunch - with salmon and capers, cheeses, grilled veggies in olive oil, bagels, fresh fruit platters,...continued

This was a great, relaxing way to see the City from the Water. The crew was friendly and accomodating. Brought relatives from Maryland and they can't wait to go back. Neither can we!!

This was our first experience aboard a sail boat, and it was absolutely fantastic. We had a wonderful time! The staff was very friendly, the food was plentiful and our glasses were never empty! We will definitely be back again.

Took a full family of visitors ages 25 to 75 on the Shearwater for brunch two weeks ago. Charming but unobtrusive crew, very good food, lots of very drinkable wine. Everyone had a great time. There's no tour guide spiel, just two very mellow...continued

Took my family that was visiting for the week and we had a great time. The food was better than expected (fruit, cheese, sandwiches, bagels, roast vegetables) and you get as much prosecco, beer, juice, soda, etc. as you'd like. The alcohol alone...continued
