We usually do the jazz cruise but thought we'd try this for a change. It was a beautiful day and the event was really relaxing. The captain and crew were great and a lot of fun. Unlimited beer too but we brought our own just in case. (The site...continued

It was a great escape from the city and the views were incredible but it was too long. One hour would have been much better. The crew was very friendly. Unlimited beverages. It was windy and cool so I am glad I brought a lightweight jacket.

It was great, BUT, and this is a big BUT. The Champagne and wine are not Complimentary. I've been on the Adirandeck boat at least 5 times. They were all booked up so I baid the extra money for the America 2.0. After paying a considerable amount...continued

AMAZING! When the crew unfurled the sails manually and the motor noises ceased, I felt like I was in a movie. The schooner is beautiful, NY Harbor is magnificent. Sailing past the Statue of Liberty and the shoreline of Manhattan is meaningful,...continued

The event and the workers were great. They made sure you had a drink and had a good time. There was some rain so the boat took off about 25 minutes late but we still got some nice pictures of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty. It actually...continued

This is the ideal, peaceful, relaxing thing to do on a beautiful day. The staff is funny, knowledgable and helpful, and the people we met were really sweet. Quite a wide variety of people: from New Jersey and Connecticut to Vienna. Everyone was...continued

We had a fabulous time. The Captain and crew were attentive and informative. The Captain described and gave us great history on the sites as we sailed by them. The weather was beautiful, we were able to cruise under full sail for a while. ...continued

So much fun! The staff was so friendly going out of their way to make sure everything was O.K.. They kept asking if we wanted more drinks.
I have sailed several times with this company. I love it!

It was a lovely day and the sail was wonderful. Two hours on the water is a very calming experience. Drinks, including wine, were free. My only advice is to take a sweater as it gets much colder on the water.

A wonderful afternoon out. The schooner is beautiful, and the views of Manhattan, Ellis Island, and the Statue (and New Jersey!) are stunning. Captain Alex and the entire crew could not have been nicer. I'd highly recommend this 2 hour trip!

This is my favorite thing to do in NYC. The crew couldn't be nicer and made the trip very enjoyable. My 5 yr old child loved it and wants to go again. The boat is beautiful and the 2 hrs passed much too quickly!

I've been on this particular schooner before, and I've never been disappointed. It's immaculate and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Will certainly go again next year!

What a fun few hours! It was a great experience to sail on NY Harbor, see Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island and New Jersey from the water...and enjoy close-up views of the Statue of Liberty. The sail was great! The crew was...continued
