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

It doesn't matter if you are from NYC, another country, or simply the state of New York...this is one of the BEST ways to experience NYC. The sites are interesting, the tour relaxing, the crew welcoming, and the four course brunch menu is the perfect way to start your day in New York City. I have been on several Classic... More

From start to end a great evening and thoroughly recommend this trip. Best hour and a half spent watching the sun go down on the Manhattan skyline and surrounding area. Great evening all around and the champagne actually tastes great as well .... Thank you

This was an awesome cruise! The food was delicious, the service was great! The crew and captain were very nice and very informative throughout the three hour cruise. The view was great from all sides of the boat. Will definitely use this line again.

My daughter and I have been in NYC for a year and a half while she gets treatment for a traumatic brain injury. Far and away our favorite thing to do while we have been here is spending time on the yacht Manhattan. Several times we have invited Wounded Warriors and Sloan Kettering cancer patients to be our guests on... More

Why didn't I know about Classic Harbor Line before?!? We spent a delightful afternoon circumnavigating the island, as a witty and knowledgeable docent shared his wealth of information about architectural structures and history. It was a chilly, windy Sunday afternoon, but the beautifully maintained and appointed yacht that ferried us around was dozy with enclosing windows and very generous heating.... More

Great variety of cruises. I particularly enjoyed the America 2.0 which is seasonal in NYC (May through early fall after which it goes to Key West) and have made plans to go back with a larger group. Interesting schooner modeled after a classic with a good crew who seek to ensure everyone has a good time. Trip includes a few... More

It was a beautiful day in the middle of the worst winter ever so my husband and I book the architectural cruise. We went to the website Zerve in the morning to reserve the tickets, and checked in at the booth about a half an hour before cruise time. In the meantime, we watched the little ones doing gymnastics and... More

We never realized how many bridges were around New York City. Our guide knew his architecture well. The government buildings were closed over the time that we visited so this was a nice way to see the attractions from the boat "Kingston". A fantastic birthday gift from my friend who had visited earlier in the spring. A tray of fruit,... More

Hubby and I traveled to NYC for Valentine's. This was a fantastic choice! It was snowing,and we were warm inside the boat. There are windows everywhere- great views- we did walk out on the deck for some pictures. Excellent food and service. Would do again.
