Our three classic yachts – the Schooner Adirondack and the Schooner America 2.0 (our sailboats), and the Luxury Yacht Manhattan (our motorized yacht) are reminiscent of the classic boats that cruised the NYC waters a hundred years ago. « less

Granted we had good weather, but I would recommend the Adirondack for the shear fun of it. Most of the two hours are under sail and the views of Manhattan (and New Jersey) are spectacular. The crew was friendly and the drink service was fine. Soft drinks and beer are included, wine is also available. The family all enjoyed the... More

I'll keep this short ... from the boat, to the crew, the tour itself ... everything was amazing. Worth every penny and very romantic. I took the night tour with my wife and will be doing this again next time in town. Do yourself a favor and do this ... You won't be disappointed. Oh not guided ... made it... More

I've now tried about five different NYC sunset boat tours (lots of visitors) and I've settled for good on the Yacht Manhattan. It's a beautiful teak boat and more intimate than most of the large cruise ships, with an awesome deck up front and indoor glassed in lower deck in back. A ride on the Yacht Manhattan is now a...

We did the 2-hour sunset sail. It was great. Lovely crew, great views, and a solid selection of beer and wine (3 drinks per person). We live in NYC and would recommend to locals and tourists. Bring snacks because they don't serve food. Also, be sure to check the weather ahead of time. I can't imagine it'd be as good... More

Friends from the UK came to NYC and wanted to do a boat tour. The Circle Line was fully booked so I looked around and found the Classic Harbor Line America 2.0 day sail. It was great -- gorgeous sail boat, friendly staff, we went right up to Lady Liberty and had picture-perfect views of the Manhattan skyline. Also, you... More

We (wife) signed up for the 2.75 hours Manhattan architecture tour. We were pleasantly surprised. The boat was clean, climate controlled, had nice viewing, and was comfortable. They served snacks and one complimentary drink per person. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable.

My family and I just took two separate sunset cruises on the America 2.0, and we could not have been happier. Captain Collin and the rest of the crew made us feel welcome, and took care of everything. He even let my six year old son have a turn at the helm on both cruises. I would highly recommend a... More

The 2-hour sailing trip was an amazing experience, we did at night. I would recommend it, drinks are offered on board, just bring some food if you're hungry. The crew was very nice and welcoming. I would definitely do it again!

We took the AIA trip offered by Classic Harbor Line on their beautiful yacht, Manhattan. The trip leaves from Chelsea Piers and lasted about 2 3/4 hours. The guide is an architect with an encyclopedic knowledge of NYC buildings, landmarks, and waterfronts. The crew was warm, friendly, and very helpful. This is one of the more expensive offered by CHL... More

I booked the August 13 City Lights sail to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. My wife absolutely loves NYC so we decided to forego our previously planned long weekend at the beach for one special day/night in NYC. The sole reason for changing our plans was the City Lights sail...we had never experienced NYC in such a way. I reviewed... More
