NYC Private Sightseeing Sailing Tour
From $575.00
Get an inspiring new perspective on the Big Apple with a private sailing tour of New York City. Bring along the whole family or a group of up to six friends for this sightseeing cruise along the Hudson River past landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Brooklyn Bridge. You’ll have the whole boat to yourself during the 2-to-3-hour voyage, making it an ideal way to celebrate special occasions.
What to Expect
Choose from an early evening sail time on weekdays, or from several all-day departures on weekends, and meet your captain and boat at Pier 25 in Lower Manhattan. Climb aboard the sailboat, which accommodates up to six passengers, and set off along the Hudson River.

Head south along the river for spectacular views of the Financial District skyscrapers, plus a view across the river to New Jersey. Get an up-close perspective on historic Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, the first sights that welcomed thousands of immigrants to New York City in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Cruise around the tip of Manhattan with a view of Governor’s Island to your right, and catch a glimpse of the Brooklyn Bridge stretching across the East River.

You're welcome to bring along your own food and drink for a relaxing sail or celebratory special occasion. After 2 to 3 hours on the water, return to the original departure point.

What an experience!!

It has been a pleasure to deal with Javier for a great and breathtaking experience. It is an awesome way to see the city from a completely different angle. Javier, the captain, takes good care of his guests. Will definitely repeat in the future!!

Great Sunset Sail

Very relaxing sail around NY Harbor-- a beautiful view of the city and the Statue of Liberty without the crowds. You can bring your own snacks/drinks as well as your own music.

A "bucket list" experience with Xavier. Nighttime Manhattan from a sailboat is a completely different experience vs a cruise set up - much more intimate and memorable. Incredible view of Macy's fireworks with Manhattan skyline in the background. Highly recommended!
