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!

Great family time with our skipper... Magnificent emotion in this setting of NY, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, East River, Hudson River. We were like a cover of The New Yorker don't Sempe. Small men on a small boat at the foot of the larger towers. Gorgeous.
