I just barely made the Champagne Brunch aboard the Historic Schooner Shearwater. I didn't realize how far it was from the subway. That was a nice walk. My directions that I had downloaded had said that it would take 7 minutes to walk to the...continued

Great event! With the goldstar price, and excellent value. As people said, be prepared it is much cooler on the water and the sun is much stronger, use sunscreen! We had about 40 people on our sail, which was a bit packed... we ended up sitting...continued

Great value for the money. The crew was very nice, polite and accomodating. They were well stocked with food and drinks. I would arrive early and stand on line so as to be the first to enter.

I invited my friend who is also a big lover of anything on the water. We both enjoyed the trip. It was almost as expected. We were a little surprised by the (small) size of the boat, but I guess it was just perfect for the number of people who...continued

The brunch cruise was good. Plenty of food and great for friends from out of town and tourist. Only set back was that seating upstairs was limited and there was a 1 mimosa limit per person. There were plenty of beer and wine as an alternative.

The sail was wonderful, eventhough there was not much wind. The deck seemed crowded at times with people moving around, but not too overwhelming. The food was excellent, especially the bagels with lox and cream chesse and the drinks were in...continued

Try to get on the boat first! Once you find a good seat, the rest is up to the crew. After a quick speech from the captain, we left from the West side and went around Manhattan to just past the Brooklyn bridge where we turned around and headed...continued

The only item that keeps this cruise from being 5 star is the lack of some commentary about what we were viewing. Other than that - the food was plentiful and very good, and the champagne flowed. Also seems like other drinks - wine and beer -...continued

Everything promised and more! Gorgeous 80-foot sailing vessel. Generous and delicious brunch. Champagne flowing for those who wished--also beer, sodas and juices. Crew very helpful and pleasant. Nice ride through the lower harbor. Highly recommend.
