Fun experience on a sailboat. There is not seating for everyone, so you may need to lean or sit up on the cabin. The boat does tilt when catching the wind and standing is not recommended if you have balance issues. I can imagine it might be worse in wet weather.

Good views of the Manhattan skyline, decent views of the Statue of Liberty (couldn't get too close) though).

Booked by way of the NYC pass: the NYC pass has some outdated information (mentions a complimentary drink--there is no complimentary drink). The is an extra charge for weekend sailings and some other types of sailings.

Thank you for this information. bc it is a nationally landmarked historic yacht from the roaring twenties, seating is casual but there is space for all. We stopped the free beverage over two years ago! Not sure how that was brought back on the pass website...

We lucked out with a beautiful, breezy day over July 4th weekend and had a great time sailing aboard the Shearwater. While temperatures in the city soared, we cooled off on this historic boat, getting an up-close view of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the lower Manhattan skyline and more. The crew was great, offering interesting facts, cold drinks and fun tunes! We appreciated the excellent communication from Manhattan by Sail prior to our trip. Once we arrived, the boarding process was quick and easy. Plenty of space on the boat to find the right spot for the sail. No bad seats! If you are looking to cool down and slow down in NYC, the Shearwater is it!!

We love the Shearwater, it's one of the longest tenant boats here in our North Cove Marina. The crew is fabulous, fun, and caring. Captian Alan Fishbone is one of my favorite Captian's, just watching him sail, makes me smile, and want to learn. Always calm, but yet serious on the job. Full of knowledge about his craft.
It's home to downtowners, when we see the Shearwater come back after its winter break we are all smiles and cannot wait to step foot on its deck again. Every sail is good, sunset, jazz, brunch, wine, and cheese, etc. Chef Leslie who caters food for this yacht is also a downtowner. Just one bite of her fresh lox on a NY bagel or her French Apple Cakes and you too will be hooked. As is the owner of the Shearwater Captian Tom, we are truly blessed to have them right here in Downtown New York City. Whether you are charting the yacht or booking one of their many sails, it's always a great time. Relaxing, fun, and oh those views. Book now before they leave for the winter. Be sure to tell them Downtown Magazine New York City sent you!

The sailing was amazing, A beautiful boat. My family and I enjoyed it a lot.
As well I want to remark that the people behind the business are amazing as well. I had a problem and they got to help me. They do care about the customer.

Heads up, if you are New York pass holder, to sail on Sundays requires an upgrade (from the free pass option) and you have to pay an extra fee.

We loved this sailing trip. . Great views of Manhattan and of the statue of liberty. You get to go close but not on Ellis Island which looked very crowded anyway. The crew was awesome, they let my little one steer the ship for a while and he loved it. I would much prefer it to the ferries which carry large groups and also the sailing experience is so much better.

Terrible company to book your trip. We did it last Thursday and without any reason, 2 hour prior to departure they cancelled the trip! No explanation, nothing.
Advice to book somewhere else!

I regret your experience. There was a mechanical issue and we had to cancel out of an abundance of caution. Please let us know if you will be able to join us for a sail in 2020 and we will attempt to make it up to you. Tom
