Glide silently past Lady Liberty

The trip around the southern tip of Manhattan with this sailor is an absolute dream. I did this tour for the first time a good 8 years ago. I was so enthusiastic about it that I wanted to repeat it. My memory didn't play a trick on me. The tour was just as great as the first time. Thumbs up for the guys on board too.

New York from a completely different perspective. I liked it

Would have liked it if the guides had not only been concerned with themselves, but also given a few sentences about the attraction on the left and right. Not that you don't know things, but that would have made the whole thing a bit more personal. There was also no free drink

Very cool & recommended!

Very nice crew & great view of the Statue of Liberty & skyline! You can escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a while and slow down! Great, impressive experience!

Great sailing trip

We started with a clear blue sky. Nice, helpful crew. We had a great view of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. Impressions I won't soon forget!

Very nice experience!

Nice boat and crew! Some seat cushions might help, as my wooden seat was very uncomfortable.
