Review from Kevin W Vasconcellos

The crew of the Shearwater are very friendly and a lot of fun. I went sailing with them on a weekday afternoon in early May, and there was just 2 of us on the boat (plus the crew). I hear it gets much more crowded (up to 40 passengers) on...continued

Review from PAUL

We had a terrific time although it started raining the minute that we boarded the sailboat. We had prepared for bad weather so we were ok; but, what do some people think about being there without even having jackets?? The captain and crew did...continued

Review from ShayCAL25

This was my 2nd time on the Shearwater sailboat. It was a beautiful day. The crew (as always) was fantastic and the trip was just long enough (about 2 hours start to finish). BUT, I have one major issue…. they advertise free beer / wine all over...continued

We had a fantastic time!! The staff was friendly, the boat was beautiful and the trip was extremetly relaxing. I felt like I had a mini-vacation from city life as it was so peaceful on the harbor.

We went on the sail on a beautiful Indian summer September Sunday afternoon and I took a visitor from New Zealand. The boat is beautiful and the crew were excellent. We chatted with the captain for a long time and we got to see a closeup of Lady...continued

I would recommend this to anyone. Even without great weather (it was a bit chilly and rain threatened but held off) it was beautiful and relaxing. A great, friendly crew engaged or left passengers be as they prefered. What a great time.

We had a lovely time on the trip but it should be noted that there is no sightseeing/tour descriptions as are done on the Circle Line and other tours.

Review from SHR

A nice ship, well worth it to take for for a spin in the harbor... But be sure to bring warmer clothes, as it does get windy and chilly on the water...

The crew was nice and very attentive. If you go for the evening cruise, it's advisable to...continued

Loved this cruise! The crew was very friendly and attentive. Views were gorgeous. It was a chilly day, but we were dressed appopriately and the sun was shining brightly. We would definitely do this again.

Sailing on the Schooner was really relaxing. The complimentary drinks made it even better! I definitely recommend going on the Shearwater during the afternoon hrs. The views are spectacular of downtown manhattan and the surrounding area.

Review from Tanya

I sailed on Shearwater for my birthday and had such a great time! I was amazed that the ship is 80 years old, she is meticulously and beautifully restored, inside and out. If you sail on her be sure to go down below and check out the interior,...continued

My husband & I have taken sails on the Hudson on other vessels. I have to say we were extremely disappointed with our experience on the Shearwater. There is no seating per se-there are limited surfaces to sit on if you are fortunate to board among...continued

The trip was really fun. The crew is friendly and helpful. It was very peaceful on the water and it was a much better experience than circle line.

Review from Patricia Mangiacapre

It's a wonderful experience to see the NY skylight all lit up, especially under a full moon. Only downside was the lack of wind, so really didn't get the full "sailing experience" I was hoping for. Also, it took a very long time to get the boat...continued
