I decided to learn to sail finally in my late 40's and chose Atlantic Yachting over a few other schools because of the great reviews, and they were right! Everyone from the first phone call to the Skippers were great. I had a Saturday Sunday sail which, due to rain, cause my Sunday to get postponed. Logan contacted me and set up another Sunday which worked for me. My first day I met Dave and Eric. We had a 2 hour in depth overview (I suggest HIGHLY to purchase the $99 ASA Cert Supplement when booking) as if you don't read this prior, it can be a bit confusing, but Dave and Eric made it easy. We sailed in the afternoon, 4 aboat, and all took turns learning Tacking and Jibing, sheeting the sails, points of sail, and working as a team. I was on Dave's boat for my first, and he was great. He knows alot and has a great approach to learning..basically try it and learn. The following Sunday I had Johnathan for our makeup Sunday. He was fantastic, and I learned alot as he explained things in a different way. Both Dave and Johnathan are TOP NOTCH teachers and I truly recommend you learn how to sail at this school. Tribeca Pier 25 and you're good to go!

If you are wanting to go sailing NYC - look no further! I can't say enough about this company and the day we had. The vibes were truly immaculate...believe me when I say no other vibe will ever match said vibe.

The boat itself was absolutely stunning and while I don't think you can have a bad day out on the water, the staff made our experience truly incredible. We brought wine along with our packaged meats and cheeses, and they were kind enough to not only serve us, but they put together a professional charcuterie board that was beautiful. Both Jonathan and Jamie (I hope I am getting her name right :) ) were so friendly and engaging - by the time we got off the boat we all felt like old friends. Our group hasn't stopped talking about it since and I can't wait to see them again in 2022!

Having taken group ASA 101, 103, and a practice sail with these guys I feel I must sing their praises. Eric & Sean (Shawn?) were our 101 instructors to start. Their affable & entertaining teaching styles helped make the concepts super easy to understand in the classroom portion. We split off and Eric was our boat portion instructor. He was patient with everyone, and had all the answers to our questions. Soon after that, we did a practice sail with Ace. The other two people didn't show so it felt like we had our own private boat. Ace was there to assist when we needed help but otherwise let us practice tacking and jibing on our own which was an invaluable experience for us. I then tackled ASA 103 and Jonathan was our instructor. There was a ton more to digest in this course vs. 101, but over the course of the weekend Jonathan covered just about everything we needed for the exam and then some. We even got to experience refueling the boat at a marina. Jonathan's instruction style, like Eric's, was personable and approachable & he's just an easygoing guy with great stories of his sailing experiences.

I opted to go with Atlantic Yachting for my intro to the sport based on their reviews, and I 100% made the right choice. You can tell the entire staff loves what they do, and that makes for an amazing time on and off the water. I can't recommend them enough. Thanks so much!

After a terrible experience with Tribeca Sailing, my partner and I decided to take 103 with Atlantic Yachting; WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! We loved every second of it, the instructor Jonathan was great and covered absolutely everything the course was set to. The exam was a breeze thanks to his extensive and perfectly delivered explanations and hands-on experience.

I would 100% recommend Atlantic Yachting to anyone looking for Sailing lessons in NYC. And if you want a fun cruise charter Vitamin Sea for the evening, you will have the best crew and time!

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. The crew of Jonathan and David are first rate and make you feel like you've won the lottery. And of course this is all done at a very reasonable rate.

I took my two kids, 16 and 13 for a sailing lesson with this company. It was incredible learning. We took a 24 foot which was great for the first lesson. I do recommend taking caps - it could get very hot! Our instructor was very good with great control. He was good with my son and we ended up having a safe, great lesson. To start with I recommend about two hours first lesson.
Shout out for Dave!

Hi Aparajita, Thank you so much for sailing with us and taking the time to share your kind words online. It was a pleasure having you on the Hudson, and after reading Dave's notes recapping the lesson, he obviously enjoyed himself too. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

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.

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 to meet a plane towing a banner proposing marriage to my girlfriend once we reach the Statute of Liberty. Between Caroline & the crew they made sure all went to plan & we met that plane. I proposed, Dave got some great pictures & she said yes! So all went perfectly. I couldn't have asked or wished for more. Thanks Atlantic Yachting for making this days the best. You won't find a better company to sail with in New York. I will definitely be back to sail again with these guys. 5 star. 👍🏼

I had a great sailing class to get my basic keelboat cert (ASA 101) with Captain Dave. It was a fun weekend, with a lot of good material / theory education as well as hands-on practice.

Dave was funny (in spite of himself), thoughtful, and very patient with making the fundamentals of sailing clear. He himself is clearly an experienced sailor, and was able to give us a good feel for why a skipper makes certain decisions in different circumstances.
