It was the perfect afternoon with our grandchildren, showing them New York City from the boat. The captain and crew were very friendly and accommodating.

More Information



Highlights on this 1.5 hour cruise include:

Battery Park, South Street Seaport and the Financial District

Governor’s Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

Parts of Brooklyn, Queens, the Hoboken and Jersey City waterfront and the New York City skyline!

The Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges of the East River

The Beacon offers wrap-around seating, a fully stocked bar of craft beers and fine wines (cash only, please), an impeccably clean bathroom and stunning views! Be out in the sun on the open back deck or bow, and find comfy seating in the shade at mid-ship.

This trip usually runs on the Beacon, but occasionally takes place on the Kingston (same size and style!).

You are welcome to bring a small picnic on board.

Built in 1994 in the Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, the Schooner Adirondack is an 80-foot wooden replica of a classic turn-of-the-century pilot schooner.

Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor’s Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.

The 1920s-style motor yacht “Manhattan,” also built by Scarano Boat Building, is brand new to the New York City harbor as of spring 2006. This 80-foot, wood-trimmed, Gilded Era commuter yacht runs full circumnavigations of Manhattan, dinner cruises and sunset cruises, and is available for private charter.
