Review from RebaR

We brought friends in from out of town - beautiful way to spend a beautiful day. Not sure I'd go for full-price, but we sat near the bar-cooler and the snacks.

For the ladies, they tell you not to wear heels or skirts and they mean it -- it's...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

Review from Kimberly F.

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.

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

A good time. Brunch included unlimited drinks and pretty weak coffee. The spread had mini sandwiches, fruit, bagels, hummus and pastries. More than enough food and drink for all. The ship is nice and of course the views are great.

The weather was perfect, the crew and boat were amazing, and the views of New York from the water were spectacular. The best way to see the Manhattan skyline for sure, plus you get a great little brunch and bottomless wine, beer, and champagne!

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
