It was a beautiful day. Hannah and the rest of the crew did an excellent job of taking care of everyone. This was the best thing we did all week! We would definitely do it again.


A great tip on a wonderful boat and friendly team. The Best place to see Manhattan from Hudson and thé liberty Statue


So good to experience New York by sail, fantastic old wooden boat, with friendly captain and crew. Don't miss this experi


Fantastic afternoon on the Shearwater! Crew were amazing and couldn’t be friendlier, the schooner is just incredible at 94 years old it is in pristine condition and we were reminded very politely to make sure we took care of her while onboard! Couldn’t fault the service and what an amazing way to see uptown NY and the Statue of Liberty!!! Keep up the good work!


Fabulous experience. Excellent crew, very friendly and experienced. I highly recommend a cruise on the Shearwater and any Manhatten by Sail cruise.


This sailing trip was a wonderful experience for the price. Manhattan by Sail offered a coupon code, which was terrific. The crew on board was friendly and very accommodating, they were happy to help our family enjoy an afternoon on the water. The crew navigated some windy seas with expertise. It was outstanding and they made my grandchildren feel like special guests! I would certainly recommend.


The best on-water experience in NY Harbor. Well priced and well timed; with opportunities to experience NYC in a most unique way.

Ahoy mates! The best NY experience you do not want to miss . Captain Alan and the crew were amazing. The ships history as well. The view of Lady Liberty will astound you. Please do yourself and or your family a favor and sail upon the NY water and indulge in a view like none other.


What a great experience. Did it once in August in warm weather, decided to come back for the brisk fall weather and wasn't disappointed. Two completely different experiences. Try day and late afternoon. Oct 28 sail and crew did not disappoint Great crew. Great sail.


Great experience, in my opinion the best way to have a tour of the bay because it is an intimate experience (only 20-30 people) on this historical boat. We recommend it
