I just barely made the Champagne Brunch aboard the Historic Schooner Shearwater. I didn't realize how far it was from the subway. That was a nice walk. My directions that I had downloaded had said that it would take 7 minutes to walk to the...continued

We brought friends in from out of town - beautiful way to spend a beautiful day. Not sure I'd go for full-price, but we sat near the bar-cooler and the snacks.

For the ladies, they tell you not to wear heels or skirts and they mean it -- it's...continued

Great value for the money. The crew was very nice, polite and accomodating. They were well stocked with food and drinks. I would arrive early and stand on line so as to be the first to enter.

Try to get on the boat first! Once you find a good seat, the rest is up to the crew. After a quick speech from the captain, we left from the West side and went around Manhattan to just past the Brooklyn bridge where we turned around and headed...continued

The boat is too small, not enough seats. I got seasick because of the sway.

I invited my friend who is also a big lover of anything on the water. We both enjoyed the trip. It was almost as expected. We were a little surprised by the (small) size of the boat, but I guess it was just perfect for the number of people who...continued

A good time. Brunch included unlimited drinks and pretty weak coffee. The spread had mini sandwiches, fruit, bagels, hummus and pastries. More than enough food and drink for all. The ship is nice and of course the views are great.

The weather was perfect, the crew and boat were amazing, and the views of New York from the water were spectacular. The best way to see the Manhattan skyline for sure, plus you get a great little brunch and bottomless wine, beer, and champagne!
