My wife and I recently went sailing on the Shearwater on Aug 4th. It was fantastic! It was a hot day, about 90 degrees but once we were on the water the breeze was great and it felt fantastic. The complimentary beverages helped to cool us down as...continued

our experience was ok. not worth $ 45, so thanks goldstar. it just goes to the statue of liberty and back. it does not even get close to the brooklyn bridge. once is enough i do not need to do it again.

Perfect weather. Low-key way to get a different vantage point of lower Manhattan without feeling so "touristy". Great way to be reminded that NYC is on the water. Friendly down to earth crew.

Review from Mwright

Sail NY Harbor is a great 1.5 hour sail in the Hudson River. Staff is very friendly and the sailboat is nice. If you want to enjoy the views of Manhattan and feel like you are on a private sail boat I would recommend the Schooner Shearwater....continued

Sailing on the Shearwater was wonderful! We had an AMAZING time!

I took the afternoon trip which was 1.5 hrs. The weather was a little chilly and cloudy, but the ride was still lovely and so enjoyable. We were offered our first beverage for...continued

Review from harry malakoff

Staff was very accommodating. However, the ship traveled only as far as the Statue of Liberty and back. In 90 minutes we could have gone to the Verrazano Bridge, Red Hook Brooklyn, or somewhere. It's not as if we were using costly oil to power...continued

Review from AG0714

The crew of the Shearwater are very friendly and accommodating. There were 14 people on sail including myself and a date. It was a romantic sail, very relaxing and no kids aboard. There is beer, wine, champagne, soda, and water. I really enjoyed...continued

The crew was great; friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. The day was perfect; clear, sunny, and just enough wind.

The cruise was nice, only complaint is that there were too many people on the boat. We arrived a half hour early, were among the first to board, and were still left without a place to sit. We kept having to move for the crew to control the sail...continued

Review from Faith

The ride itself was very pleasant, unfortunately, we were under motor power for much of the ship which was not what I had expected. The crew was pleasant and the complimentary drink a nice surprise!

Review from MD

The tour seemed kind of short to me and i wish we could've seen the Brooklyn Bridge more upfront, but overall it was a nice and relaxing boat ride. You get to have a pretty good view of Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty

Review from Goldstar Member

The trip was quite lovely. We sailed around the bay not around the city. I guess my annoyance is that Goldstar showed a large pirate type ship and this was much smaller. While the ride and crew were very nice the ad showed a completely different...continued

This boat ride was great! It was ninety minutes of pure relaxation as we rode the Hudson river. The staff members were all so cordial and competent. We saw the Statue of Liberty and the New World Trade Center as we rode the river. I would...continued

Review from HG

This is a lovely outing . -- a low key capable crew, and a serene experience on our busy river in the heart of our financial hub. We were lucky to have had perfect weather, but the sail would be fun even in less ideal conditions.

This sail is a must-do activity for tourists and natives alike, and the crew is amazing!

This was a great way to see the skyline from the water. The crew was VERY helpful and friendly. The seating was not the most comfortable, but it worked out ok.
My issue was with locating the venue. The map was not precise, and the place did...continued
