Apart from the weather it was absolutely perfect. Dave and Jonathan looked after us very well and made the experience so much better. Worth it just to see the Statute of Liberty that close.

Atlantic Yachting is a wonderful sailing school, in my opinion the best and most welcoming in Manhattan. They made it possible for me to sail with my ten year old son while I got my first level ASA certification so we could learn together. Our instructor, Logan, was a terrific teacher, very patient, great with kids and adults, and clearly... More

We have not done anything in NY that we enjoyed more than sailing on the Hudson from the Upper West Side down to Ellis Island/the Statue of Liberty. The boat is gorgeous, and Logan and Ben were extraordinary captain and crew.

Know when you're looking to do something a bit different that requires a lot of planning (think surprise engagement while sailing the Hudson with the couple's parents hidden below deck) how at least a few things won't work out just right? That was NOT the case with Atlantic Yachting! Everything went perfectly from start to finish! From the various phone... More

We had a spectacular day on the Hudson River. It's a relaxing way to take in the city in style. I was particularly impressed by the level of service provided by the staff. Captain Dave was really friendly and his passion for sailing the Hudson is obvious. Mariette was so attentive to keeping our drinks full and managing the flow... More

AMAZING!! We had the incredible pleasure of sailing with Dave P. and Mariette this weekend, and it exceeded all my expectations. We live in Manhattan and have sailed in the Hudson on the Circle Line and on a cruise ship as it left port, and so I didn’t expect much more when booking this trip. But WHOA, what a massive... More

The few hours I spent sailing with a small group of friends were essential to a much-needed NYC “staycation.” Our time was altogether calming and engaging, guided capably by our crew, Dave and Mariette, who allowed us to relax and enjoy the sights, music, drinks and conversation. Often overlooked is New York’s integral connection with water, and being on the... More

Myself, my husband and my 28 year old son experienced yachting on the Hudson as part of my husbands 50th birthday. It was the most fantastic experience ever ( and we own a boat at home!) The crew were marvellous and the setting was unbelievable. Most memorable being the sunset behind the Statue of Liberty. We were also treated to... More

My children surprised me with a 2 hour sailboat ride down the Hudson River for my 60th. Atlantic Yachting was a magical respite from the hustle and bustle of NYC. Very relaxing ride and knowledgable, professional crew. Perfect way to see the Manhattan skyline!

If you are visiting New York, you haven't really seen or experienced it in style until you take a sailing trip with Atlantic Yachting. From the moment I booked Caroline was accommodating & keen to help me with plans to propose on the yacht. On the trip crew Captain Dave & Mariette were extremely hospitable & welcoming. I had planned... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
