They say that you can pack a lunch, but no one on our trip brought on food. There is a small coffee shop at the Pier. We walked over along 23rd street and stopped at Chelsea Square Restaurant (23rd & 9th) on our way. There are a lot of eateries along the way.

Description

Board the 105-foot, 1800s style, Schooner America 2.0 after dusk to view the famous Manhattan skyline. Bring your favorite companion or a group of friends to enjoy the lights as you sip on champagne in the peaceful night breezes of the harbor. The city lights sail is exquisite for an after-dinner event or to finish any day in the city.

You’ll experience the following on your two-hour sail:

  • Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the schooner will pass by Ellis Island and sail out to the Statue of Liberty.
  • Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governors Island, breeze by the Financial District and tease her bow under the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.

Complimentary beer, wine, champagne, soda, and water will be provided.

_Please note:

A few rounds will be served, but this is not an unlimited booze cruise. Classic Harbor Line aims to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful and safe experience for all of their guests._
