The weather was Can be windy, so bring a layer or two. If it rains they will provide rain jackets. Don't be discouraged, the stormy sailing can be fun. On a sunny day, wear sunscreen!. I wore Maxi-dress, flip flops.

The pier is on the northern side of Chelsea Piers. The M23 or a can will drop you off there, or you can take a cab.

Description

You’ll experience the following on your 2 hour sail aboard the Adirondack:


  • Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails 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, soda, and water will be provided. (Note: the staff will serve a few rounds, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. They aim to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all of the guests.)

The captain will be shutting off the engines and setting sail for as much of the trip as possible.
