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

First time to NYC, we wanted to see as much as we could with the limited time we had. This was an excellent way to view the Manhattan Skyline and see the Statue of Liberty. There is no guided tour. However, the crew mates will answer any questions you have and will take pictures. (no need for a selfie) Beer... More

I recently took a trip to NYC for Columbus weekend to meet up with a friend for a girl's weekend. I was looking for a cruise that we could take and see some sights of NYC that we had not seen before. After researching several, I decided on Classic Harbor Line, specifically the Sunday brunch cruise. Not only is the... More

James, the captain, and Zoe were absolutely fantastic. They could not have made the trip more enjoyable. Zoe was extremely hospitable and answered all of our questions about the various architectural and natural sightings along the Hudson. James was equally knowledgeable and patient with our many inquiries. We were visiting from San Francisco, and this was by far the highlight... More

Using a discount from Goldstar that took our fee down to $36 apiece, we enjoyed a leisurely 2-hour cruise along the Hudson, down to the Statue and LIberty and back from the Chelsea Piers that was one of the highlights of our New York vacation. The Adirondack is a comfy 80-foot schooner with cushioned seats along each side, piloted by... More

We booked the sunset cruise for the night of Thursday 15th. On arrival we given advice on where to sit, offered blankets (as it was little chilly) and a glass of wine and away we went. We couldn't find any fault with the Ship, Staff or the Wine! Thoroughly recommend this company to anyone. The staff were full of humour... More

This is the second Harbor tour for me. The first was the Architectural tour and now the skyline, both where outstanding. Very friendly crew serving us beer and wine. A must to do in NYC!

We were meeting up with some friends while in NYC and wanted to try something new so we decided to take the Architectural tour of Manhattan island offered by Classic Harbor Line. This tour circumnavigates the entire island with running commentary by an architect who points out points of interest. Included in the fare is a complimentary beverage and snacks.... More

Went out on the afternoon sail of the Schooner America 2.0, absolutely the best way to see the harbor and the river. Skip the big tour boats, the water taxis and the booze cruises. So peaceful, so relaxing, family friendly, and the highlight of our trip to New York. Great conversation with the Captain and first mates, delicious local beer... More

The sunset cruise : a perfect end to the day... beautiful 80ft schooner, backdrop of Manhattan, a sail-by of the Statue of Liberty, nothing but the sound of the ocean to be heard and the champagne flowing. Just lovely. The crew (Captain Colin, Dan and Daniel) couldn't have done more to make everyone welcome and comfortable. I had been concerned... More

We couldn't recommend the sunset 2hr tour on the America II schooner enough. This was a wedding gift to both my husband and I, and WOW, what a gift. The experience will be engraved forever. Captain Colin and first mates Dan and Daniel were attentive, but still allowed us to absorb the moment and the views of Manhattan at night,... More
