We had a company trip upon the yacht. It was an evening tour and we had a blast. The views were wonderful and were so pretty. We came so close to the Statue of Liberty. It was really fun and I would suggest DO it.

For the past five years I count my three hour sail with Atlantic Yachting as one of the highlights of the summer. There is no better way to spend a day or evening with friends, than relaxing on the Hudson and enjoying the wonderful views of the city from the relaxing confine of your private yacht.

This was definitely a highlight of our trip. We elected the 3 hour sail departing at 7pm during summer. The crew were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The 3 hour sail at this time was perfect as we got to watch the sunset behind the Statue of Liberty and then watch the new york skyline come to light as we sailed... More

This is a unique way to get outside, and away from the crowds in NYC. If you enjoy being on the water, there is the option to take sailing lessons, or charter a boat. We took private lessons and really enjoyed Jonathon, our instructor for both days. It was great sailing on the Hudson, with views of the Empire State... More

I couldn't have asked for a better crew for our Mother's Day ride on the Hudson - they were very attentive, respectful and fun to sail with. I'll definitely sail with them again!

We hired the crew and their Beneteau sloop for the afternoon as a bachelor's party gift. Could not have enjoyed it more, the boat is gorgeous, the staff at once courteous and engaging, and the experience extremely convenient, being situated right next to Riverside park. I would use them again, and would recommend the team to any and all.

My wife and I went for a private lesson for first timers. The instructor could not have been better and the 'behind the scene' sup[port staff were very helpful and accommodating.

The sailing course was first rate, our instructor was knowledgeable, patient and fun. The location was great. The boat was in good condition. Even the exam at the end wasn't as bad as we feared

The crew is fantastic - courteous, safe, fun and knowledgeable. The sailboat was incredible - clean, sleek, comfortable. They even had blankets for us when it became chilly late at night! And the view of Manhattan by night from the river is breathtaking. Thank you, Atlantic Yachting, for a wonderful experience and a memorable way to celebrate our 7th anniversary.

Atlantic Yachting was nothing short of fantastic. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great sailing experience in NYC. Their customer service was perfect, pricing was very reasonable and the experience overall was a 10. Highly recommended!
