How was your experience?
It was very pleasant. Perfect weather, great sunset behind the statue. They rose sails and let you help do so if you wanted. Nice bar aboard and drinks were priced as expected ($7 wine or Brooklyn Lager). I kinda wish they hand actually used the sails rather than the motor but I guess they didn't want to rock the boat around too much with all the passengers on board. My main complaint is that the ride was extremely SLOW and in two hours we didn't even make it around the tip of Manhattan to go up the Hudson at all, we just meandered around the statue and south of Manhattan. But still the boat is really cool, staff very pleasant, and my boyfriend's parents from out of town were very impressed. I would take visitors again.
