Wat je gaat doen

We will greet you at the top of the gangway in North Cove just 100 yards from the World Trade Center. You will be invited on board our 1929 Nationally Landmark, the classic schooner Shearwater, given a short safety speech and orientation where questions will be answered, you will then be offered a refreshment (for sale) by one of the crew; and we will motor off the dock and get underway. We will raise sails once we have cleared the marina and sail around the harbor for somewhere between 1.5 - 2 hours depending on the time of day. You will be able to walk around the vessel and tour the below deck cabins and are invited to engage my knowledgeable crew with any questions you might have as we sail past the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, in view of bridges and other landmarks of NY Harbor. With the wind in your hair, Seagulls, bouys, foghorns and passing ships and tugboats will add to the serene and exciting respite from your busy NYC day that will leave you energized and ready for more.

I was born and raised in NYC and first began volunteering aboard historic sailboats here in NY Harbor approximately 30 years ago. I and my carefully selected crew hold U.S. Coast Guard issued 100-ton captain's licenses; we have been sharing our love of sailing large vintage schooners under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty and the NY Skyline with locals and visitors to NY for the past 19 years. My boat, the SHEARWATER, was built in 1929, the "Gatsby Era," at the height of the Roaring '20s, and was designated a National Landmark in 2011.

Your host will be either me (Tom) or one of my captains. We pride ourselves in offering an intimate, casual and un-narrated experience here in NY harbor as an alternative to the large ferry boat sightseeing trips to the Statue of Liberty.
Come down and enjoy a little part of NYC's history...

To begin with, I booked the Schooner tour and it was cancelled at the last minute. I was offered a refund, which I declined, or a ride a clipper ship, which I accepted seeing this was my last day in New York. Most of the crew seemed very young and not interested and /or too inexperienced to interact with the passengers. That being said, a commentary of what we were seeing would have been appreciated! The Airbnb description of what the tour offered varied greatly from what I actually experienced. If you want to spend $45 to take a boat ride to look at the Statue of Liberty, this is the tour for you, but I suspect you can find a more reasonably priced one with better ammenities!

Great tour with shearwater and the crew. It was so close to see Statue of Liberty and I also saw Brooklyn bridge. Especially in such a beautiful sunny day. Will definitely recommend anyone who travel in New York.

The view from the water was wonderful! It was a really nice experience. However there were a lot of people on the boat and the seating was not really comfortable.

I booked this experience to surprise my significant other and it was one of the best experiences ever! The crew was very attentive and kind, the boat was quite spacious for about 12-15 people on board. It was comfortable to move around the deck, they had drinks to purchase, and the views were transcendent. Loved the pace at which we sailed too. Everything was comfortable, clean, and friendly. Thank you very much, Manhattan by Sail!

The boat was quite good despite not being great sailing weather , the beers were perfectly cold . Crew/skipper seemed disengaged & not overly interested in providing any commentary or conversation with the guests.

You get what you pay for. It was a wonderful experience for the views and time allowed to enjoy and take pictures. If you put up together, crew, guests, and some personnel who seems to be crew off-work... it can be considered crowded for some folks. I enjoyed the experience and would definitely do it again.
