The day was beautiful, but windy with big gusts. Captain Dave took us sailing through NY Harbor, but felt the river traffic and the winds were not a good combo for safety, so down went the sails and on went the motor. Even so the trip was a real...continued

Review from Lena C.

The only hiccup was finding the boat. There's just a woman with an umbrella on the north side of the marina. Also I had to show my email to get our free drinks

Review from Veronica I.

The sailing to the Statue of Liberty was fantastic but comign back to the pier, the crew just let the sailboat kind of hang out on the water for almsot 40 minutes instead of sailing to the Brooklyn Bridge or up the west side. Fantastic sailboat...continued

Review from jillian b.

There is no better way to enjoy an afternoon in New York, than to step onto the deck of the Shearwater. The day couldn't have been better, bright spring day with a crisp breeze as we quietly sailed around the harbor. The crew is wonderful and...continued

Out on the water was a bit chilly, but my...continued

This was an amazing boat ride. The crew was super friendly. The boat was wonderful. This was a true highlight of our entire trip to NYC. Highly recommend. One word of advice: the check in is a little stand that is set up right by the boat....continued

We took friends visiting from Cleveland and the four of us sailed on a Saturday afternoon. The Schooner Shearwater has a great staff aboard, and we had great photo opportunities along side the Statue of Liberty. It was a great way to see lower...continued

Capt. Dave & crew made us feel very welcome on Shearwater. Ship and day were beautiful. Would recommend it.

Review from stoffelsmichiel

Crew is friendly but quiet. Why don't they tell something about what can be seen along the coast? Fun facts about the boat? Could be more entertaining. Worth the goldstar price, but not more.

Had a great time although I do recommend that even if it is 60+ degrees outside, you should layer your clothing a lot- I was cold even with 4 shirts on! If you like sailing you'll have a great time. The crew was pleasant and there was no issue of...continued

Loved it. The boat was beautiful, the crew friendly and the experience very relaxing. What other tourist, in town for only two days, can say she went sailing around the harbor? The complimentary wine was nice too.

I also liked that it was a...continued

The sailing trip itself was fine. The boat was in great condition and the views of the city were great. The crew however pretty much ruined the experience for us. None of the crew appeared to like each other and sat in the back of the boat...continued

Review from Jessy

This boat is really nice. Its a small crew and they are very friendly. It was so relaxing just hanging out in the sun on the water. My only thing is I wish we could have seen more of the city. It kind of doesn't go very far, it just circles...continued
