Enjoy a magical, moonlit view of Manhattan aboard the schooner Adirondack. On this sail, you’ll experience the splendor of the New York City skyline at night under the bright, radiating moonlight.
Some moonlit sights during the sail will include:
- The sensational city lights across the Manhattan skyline — fantastic views of the city from the Empire State Building to the Financial District
- Ellis Island, welcoming immigrants to America from 1892 to 1954
- The Statue of Liberty, proudly bearing the torch of American freedom
The captain will be shutting off the engines and setting sail for as much of the trip as possible.
Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided. (Note: A few rounds will be served, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. The aim is to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful and safe experience for all guests.)
Food is not served during the sail, but please feel free to bring your own picnic.
