Dedicated to helping locals and visitors alike enjoy the unique wonders of New York City, Classic Harbor Line hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a relaxing, inspiring and breathtaking cruise through the waters we proudly call home. 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.

Whether at the start of your visit to NYC or the end, you MUST do the brunch circumnavigation of Manhattan on these lovely vessels. Friendly hosts, informative guides and a truly delicious brunch. Great value for money. Not to be missed! We loved every minute. When we return to New York we'll certainly do it again.

I am mesmerized by NYC, travel here about 3 times a year, and have always wanted to circumnavigate the Island of Manhattan! I have done the Circle Line sunset tour and that was good for sure. However, the Classic Harbor Line elevates the experience to an entirely new level. Please treat yourself, your family, your friends to this exceptional experience.... More

We took the 1.5 hour Architectural tour of Lower Manhattan and really enjoyed it. The boat was very comfortable and well appointed; the staff were very friendly and Doug the architect who narrated the tour was friendly and very knowledgeable. We had a great time which was helped by late afternoon April sunshine breaking through the clouds! We would definitely... More

This is one of the only cruises that goes around the entire island of Manhattan, so even if you've done a river cruise before, this one is still worth a try. It a tour on a 1920's style yacht that is narrated by an architect. There is seating inside, as well as bathrooms and a bar. You can also go... More

FABULOUS. The highlight so far of our trip. More expensive than the larger tours but definitely worth it. Lovely mahogany wood interior with comfortable seating and complementary first drink. Blankets provided to sit outside and take photos (it was Easter and cold). Friendly, professional crew. We were exceptionally lucky as it was a clear night, the wind had dropped and... More

We enjoyed a fabulous 2.5 hour circumnavigation of Manhattan on a classic yacht that included a rich narration of the architectural history of the island. The guide was terrific and the crew was very friendly. The $80 fare included a glass of wine or beer and snacks. We had been on Manhattan circumnavigations before but this was truly special because... More

I took my girlfriend on the brunch cruise last Saturday and we had a phenomenal time. The crew was extremely professional and it was a really enjoyable time to experience NYC from the water. Sailed on America 2.0 , another Classic Harbor Line boat in Key West, a few years back and was equally impressed.

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
