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

We booked the Architectural tour that circumnavigates Manhattan on a summer Saturday morning. There were only 9 of us passengers on the Kingston yacht that day. The yacht was clean and beautiful. The crew was friendly and helpful. They treated us to a drink of our choice and an abundance of pastries and fruit. The trip featured an architect who... More

We spent a lovely day in NYC and went on the America 2.0. The trip lasted 2 hours and left from Chelsea Piers. It went along the Hudson River passing Battery Park, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, and the beautiful Manhattan Skyline. They offered drinks a few times during the trip ( water, soda, beer; wine was available for... More

Wonderful tour-only about 20 people on the beautiful boat the evening we went. Had a complementary drink and a cash bar after that was a real treat. Tour showed us all the highlights of the city at night, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty. Highly recommend this informative and relaxing boat tour. Try to go on a week night... More

What I disliked about this? Nothing. What I liked about it? Everything. The Sunset Jazz Tour was AWESOME. From the jazz band that played loud enough for those of us on the deck to hear but not too loud where you couldn't carry on a conversation...to the staff who were very accommodating and pleasant. It is something I would definitely... More

Instead of Captain Bly, we were greeted by a cheerful, energetic crew who made sure we were well taken care of, AND worked the boat to get us out on NY's Harbor for a beautiful afternoon sail. It was low-key and so pleasant. We did a 4:30pm 2-hour sail. Soft drinks and beer were complimentary with wine available for purchase.... More

Our 1.5 hour tour was the best way to see the architecture. The service was very friendly and the beer/wine selection for our included drink was good quality and the beer highlighted at least one local brewery. Our kids loved it too as sometimes the choppy waves got the boat rocking (but in a fun way, not a seasick way).... More

The Schooner cruise came highly recommended by my friend that lives in NYC. We are so glad we listened! We have two children ages 13 and 10 and both of them loved every minute of it. It is relaxing, peaceful, and offers the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, particularly Freedom Tower. It was awe inspiring. And then, there... More

We took the sunset cruise aboard the Schnooner America 2.0. We had a wonderful trip out into the harbor. Stephanie, the blond siren, kept us well hydrated and smiling on the two hour cruise. Highly recommended.

An excellent trip full of fun music, great staff and extraordinary views. What more could you as for? A free glass of wine? That's included in the price. Well worth the trip.
