You walk on board this humongous sailboat, greeted by a friendly staff. It's your choice where you sit then the capt gives an overview of the ride while the crew is taking cocktail orders. We sailed through the Hudson river passing the statue of liberty, Brooklyn bridge, downtown manhattan. It's an amazing trip. My 5th time throughout the years.

This is not a tour - so don't expect narration throughout. It was however very relaxing and the crew is great. You basically just cruise around, drink alcohol and enjoy the cool breezes and city lights. I personally do like a little information...continued
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.
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._
