When we saw that the sail was sold at and would be at capacity we were nervous that it would just be too crowded - especially since we had our 1 and 3 yr olds with us. But it was great. We all loved it. The crew was attentive and friendly and the...continued

Review from Deke Jamieson

A thoroughly enjoyable experience with a very attentive and professional crew. The actually sailing is a bit too brief for me, but with mother nature, tides, and currents controlling the time on the water, it is still a wonderful way to spend a...continued

A wonderful experience from start to finish. Friendly, informative crew, a beautiful craft, and a rare close-up on the Statue of Liberty . . . plus a very tasty glass of wine! We went in early May, and we really needed an extra layer of clothing....continued

friendly crew, great old boat not too unwieldy to let you experience being right on the harbor. I'd go again and try to talk them into going closer to some landmarks !

Gorgeous weather and gorgeous sites but unfortunately a young mother, two toddlers and the carriage thought it would be appropriate (it was not) They never shut up (including the cooing Mom who also had to use her cell so kiddies could talk to...continued

Great afternoon sail for tourists and residents alike. The boat is a restored 1920s wooden schooner, and the staff is pleasant and happy to talk about the boat, sailing, etc. The cost of the 1.5 hour trip in the harbor includes a free glass of...continued

Review from Chris Dunne

I loved the boat and the crew were excellent. The only thing that is dropping this from a four star to a three is the route the boat took. We sailed out to the statue of liberty and just kind of sat there for a while and then sailed back. I would...continued

I personally think the Shearwater is the finest schooner in the NYC area. It is beautiful in design. One can really feel they have been on the water. I have been sailing on the Shearwater for several years and they always have a wonderful,...continued

It was a great event - I could not have asked for anything else. The schooner is gorgeous and the crew is wonderful. I enjoyed every minute. It was so relaxing - a 1 1/2 hour vacation that stayed with me all week. Will do it again.
