Full description
Enjoy a 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.

Easy booking at getyourguide.com and thanks about the very good and easy communication. 5* stars extra. Absolutely friendly and helpful staff, family atmosphere with about 35 people. You can quickly come into contact and there are good drinks (unfortunately not exactly cheap)We had clear weather and the pictures of the sunset and the skyline in twilight could replace all commercial photo wallpapers. You can move freely to all sides on board and can get unexpected motives. One oft the best: we were lucky that the captain stopped just in front of a firework at the Brooklyn Bridge. Really terrific.Special thanks to the girl-sailor from Lake Constance in Germany, who gladly answered all questions and we wish her all the best for the future.

Die Segeltour mit Jess Musik Begleitung ist grandios. Von einer freundlichen Crew an einem wunderschönen Holz'Segelboot beim Sonnenuntergang und einer Musik von feinstem war für unsere Familie das Highlight von unserem Urlaub. Vielen Dank für die schöne Momente

Tra tutte le escursione svolte nella città di NYC, questa è la migliore. Poter ammirare lo skyline serale della città e la Statua della libertà illuminata è in assoluto una delle più belle esperienze vissute a NYC. Ben organizzata, con personale molto cortese e disponibile.
