More Information



Take a journey through time aboard this Manhattan excursion that features live jazz music with historical background as you view the iconic skyline of Manhattan!  Light commentary on the cultural and economic forces that shaped the evolution of this music connects the jazz pieces to the sites where they originated as you cruise around the entire island of Manhattan and through a century of New York City Jazz history aboard the aptly named 1920s style yacht Manhattan.

Hosted by Mike McGarril and the Classic Harbor Line Jazz Trio (all graduates of the New School for Jazz Performance), you’ll experience a comfortable and unique cruise through the Hudson, East and Harlem Rivers with gorgeous 360-degree views of the island from the climate-controlled observatory.

On this 2.75-hour cruise, you’ll journey around the entire island of Manhattan while listening and learning to the past century of NYC jazz.

Specific highlights include:

• The Empire State Building, the Upper West Side and the Harlem River

• Music made famous by NYC-based jazz legends such as Duke Ellington & Charlie Parker, plus selections from the Great American Songbook

• Parts of the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as the complete NYC skyline

• The United Nations and the Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges over the East River

• New York Harbor icons the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

One complimentary beverage will be provided, along with an assortment of light hors d’ oeuvres.

About the Ticket Supplier: Classic Harbor Line LLC

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.
