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.

The boat had at least 40 people and was quite full...a few less people would have been better, but there was lots of food and the service was excellent and the day was perfect. Just a few too many people. Everyone was more than happy.

This cruise was absolutely amazing! The crew was great, the boat had just the right number of people on it (not crowded at all, very enjoyable).

The food was delicious.

I highly recommend this cruise.

This was a nice afternoon cruise. The crew provided excellent service, but not overbearing. I thought the food was skimpy, and came off the boat hungry. There are no "seconds" so grab two wraps the first time. An OK price with the Goldstar...continued

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.
