More Information



Enjoy a magical, moonlit view of Manhattan aboard the schooner Adirondack. On this sail, you’ll experience the splendor of the New York City skyline at night under the bright, radiating moonlight.

Some moonlit sights during the sail will include:

  • The sensational city lights across the Manhattan skyline — fantastic views of the city from the Empire State Building to the Financial District
  • Ellis Island, welcoming immigrants to America from 1892 to 1954
  • The Statue of Liberty, proudly bearing the torch of American freedom

The captain will be shutting off the engines and setting sail for as much of the trip as possible.

Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided. (Note: A few rounds will be served, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. The aim is to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful and safe experience for all guests.)

Food is not served during the sail, but please feel free to bring your own picnic.

About the Ticket Supplier: Classic Harbor Line LLC

Built in 1994 in the Scarano Boat Building of Albany, New York, the Schooner Adirondack is an 80-foot wooden replica of a classic turn-of-the-century pilot schooner.

Heading south from Chelsea Piers and down the Hudson River to Battery Park, the Schooner Adirondack passes by Ellis Island and sails out to the Statue of Liberty. Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor’s Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.

The 1920s-style motor yacht “Manhattan,” also built by Scarano Boat Building, is brand new to the New York City harbor as of spring 2006. This 80-foot, wood-trimmed, Gilded Era commuter yacht runs full circumnavigations of Manhattan, dinner cruises and sunset cruises, and is available for private charter.
