She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776 in Roman numerals), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken chain and shackle lie at her feet as she walks forward, commemorating the national abolition of slavery following the American Civil War.

Barry is a great guy. He was pleasant, calm and engaging. The boat is great. He knows what he’s talking about and our experience was awesome!

We had an amazing trip with Barry. What started out as a two-hour sightseeing tour - amazing views of the Manhattan skyline, Liberty Island, Ellis Island, Jersey City, and more - turned into three hours of great sailing lessons and an opportunity to participate and feel like "the crew." We advised Barry prior to departing that we were considering sailing lessons and would love an opportunity to participate and see if it is something we might be interested in. He did not disappoint. We were free to do as much or little as we wanted. We did a lot and learned a lot. Needless to say we are already looking into sailing lessons. Captain Barry knows the New York Harbor and Hudson River area. has a passions for sailing, and is more than willing to share and teach anyone with a desire to learn. We will likely start our lessons in Texas and then reach out to Captain Barry to get in some true open water training. Thank you Barry for a great day out on the water!

My family had a wonderful time with Barry out on the water for a late afternoon sailing trip. We saw the Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty, Governor's Island, The Verrazzano Bridge, and more. Barry delighted us with cheese and crackers and plenty of drink options. He has a clear passion for sailing, and it was a great experience. Super fun and safe for all!

We had a great time with Barry and his excellent sailboat. The cruise was leisurely trip into New York Harbor with fabulous views of the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island, Ellis Island, lower Manhattan and more. I booked this as a family Mother's Day outing, and it was a perfect choice.

A group of us did Captain Barry’s 3- hour tour and had a wonderful time. The boat is clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. I like the corner backseat overlooking the whole boat! We had spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan. Captain Barry and his crew were very attentive, and we felt relaxed and comfortable. Thinking of planning an outing soon with old friends. Definitely will return!
