The weather was a little chilly for a June night. I wore jeans and a blazer. They have a few blankets you can borrow to keep warm.

It was a very relaxing trip, the ship was slow. Not recommended for tourists because it only goes to the statue of liberty, you don't get much view of manhattan. For those who just want to relax on a nice day, it's a good choice.

Description

Nothing will prepare you for the amazing sensation of being NYC’s largest sailing boat in commercial operation today … 158 feet long, with masts rising 120’ off the deck. Flying over 8,000 square feet of sail and weighing in at over 200 tons, the Clipper City is both the iconic newest addition to the NYC skyline and a stunning reminder of New York’s role in America’s 19th-century rise to prominence in global commerce.

Drinks available for purchase on board.

*Daytime Sail *(90 minutes)

Take a step back in time on New York’s only tall ship. From her spacious main deck or raised quarter deck, you’ll enjoy the sailing experience of a lifetime aboard this majestic topsail schooner as we unfurl her canvas and set sail through the harbor.

*Twilight Sail *(2 hours)

Watch night fall on the city as the sun sets behind the Statue of Liberty from the unbeatable vantage point of the harbor. Order a drink from our full bar as we drop canvas and leave Manhattan behind.
