  • Clipper City Tall Ship Sunset Sail

    1. Clipper City Tall Ship Sunset Sail

    Enjoy a romantic 2-hour harbor cruise of New York from on board the Clipper City’s spacious main deck or raised quarter deck. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, and many other gems of the harbor as you sail. A replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America’s industry more than a century ago, Clipper City was built in the mid-1980s using plans purchased from the Smithsonian. Designed with her new cargo in mind – you! – her decks are spacious and comfortable with ample seating, a full bar amidships, and a raised quarter deck back aft that allows for unparalleled views of the city and its harbor. Order a drink from the full on-deck bar, sit back and relax, or help the crew raise the sails and take a turn at the helm on this idyllic cruise that evokes the days of old.
