Heavenly! This must to be most romatic thing to do in the city. It was simply magical, the crew was amazing! AMAZING! and the beer reps were very friendly and infomative. The cheese was paired nicely with the beer and the fun was simply endless....continued

Great time!! The beer and cheese was fantastic. I went with a few friends afterwork to change up the normal routine. Everyone had a great time and I strongly recommend this event.

Just a great time! Informative, tasty and relaxing! We'll definitely be seeking out some of the brews we sampled and the pairings were absolutely yummy! If we could, we'd seriously consider doing this sailing every single week of the summer. ;)

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.
