Andrew was a great captain! It was a very relaxed and peaceful tour. Much better than any other water tour I’ve been on in NYC. No crowds to deal with or constant maneuvering around people just to get a good photo. I highly recommend booking this tour and already have plans to return with my girlfriends. The best for the best! Do yourself a favor, book with Brooklyn Sail. Keep up the good work Ian and Andrew!

It was a great sailing trip with Lan. Very friendly and very accommodating. It was super chilled and we got to see the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge and the New York skyline up close. Highly recommended

We had a great time! Ian, is experienced, energetic, and well traveled. NYC statues and buildings captivated us throughout the sail. We will book again soon!

Ian is a wonderful host. Respectful, caring, great story teller. The route was well designed to showcase nyc sights. It’s been truly amazing day.
