Very fun time but tried to charge for cork-fee- this should have been indicated on the event. We brought our own wine and the bottle cost less than the corking fee- they ended up letting us drink it without having to pay, but still put a damper on...continued

The sail boat ride was relaxing and casual setting. They did honor the complimentary drink as advertised. But you need to let them know before boarding or checking in about the free drink.

I have sailed on the Shearwater several times since it replaced the Petrel and found it to be an unforgettable experience each time. The server was friendly and attentive and the captain is personable. This sail is unnarrated, one of the reasons...continued

Relaxing sail in the harbor and out to the Statue of Liberty - no talks - just peaceful sailing and a free drink. Had a great time.

The Shearwater is unique on the Hudson: an intimate schooner, uncrowded, makes you feel like you charted a boat for a private sail. The greeter and crew are professional, friendly, behave as though they are glad to have the privilege of working on...continued

This was an extremely relaxing cruise through the harbor and around the statue of liberty. No pressure, no talk, just relaxed sailing. It was wonderful.

Fabulous day out on the water. You can't beat this for value for money. A 2 hour sail on the harbor and a complimentary beverage. I will definitely be doing this again!

What a wonderful afternoon we spent sailing around the NYC. Not a cloud in the sky. I took my 85 y/o old mother out for mothers day, and it could not have made her happier! I completely recommend this event for anyone. Bring your camera. ...continued

Great family outing on a beautiful day! Even though we dressed warmly, the blankets provided by the crew were much appreciated.

The boat ride was lovely! We ended up going on one of the hottest days of the summer, but we loved it just the same. They gave us one free drink and offered drinks for purchase after that. The ride was so relaxing, people were able to lie down,...continued

We lucked out and had a day of sunshine to enjoy our sail. For our 230 sail there were about 20 others aboard which made for a comfortable experience. The crew was friendly and handled the sail professionally throughout. There was enough of a wind...continued

We had an awesome time. The schooner has been fabulously reconstructed; you can tell from the details that the owner is proud of his schooner. The sunset behind the Statue of Liberty was breathtaking. Thanks!!

This was a lot of fun. It helped that the weather was perfect. Be sure to bring some sunscreen and maybe a snack, there is no food on board. A nice way to see New York.
