The sail was cancelled, but we were not informed, so we showed up at the Pier and were turned away. No word from Goldstar yet on a refund. :-(

We enjoyed it. The boat is beautiful and the skyline perfect. The only criticism was that it was too long. Ninety minutes would have been just right

More Information



The 80-foot, 1890s-style pilot schooner is the wonders of New York Harbor. Schooner Adirondack has been sailing in the New York City Harbor since the fall of 1999, has entertained thousands of NYC visitors and locals, and has attracted a large and growing number of passionate regulars who can’t stop coming back for more. Many New Yorkers consider multiple trips aboard the schooner to be a regular and highly anticipated part of their warm-weather seasons.

The Schooner Adirondack features plenty of seating, teak decks and impressive mahogany trim. Guests always enjoy the friendliest and finest service, and are treated to complimentary beverages on all trips. The Schooner Adirondack is the fastest resident sail vessel in the New York Harbor, and a record-holder in the Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race for 14 consecutive seasons.

A jacket is recommended, as it can get chilly on the water at night.

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.
