About Narwhal Yacht Charters
Experience a 2, 3, or 4 hour sail along New York City's skyline aboard a lovingly restored classic sailboat! Narwhal Yacht Charters offers intimate private charters for up to 6 people on a Tayana 37, a seaworthy vessel designed to cross oceans. This year (2021) marks Captain Eric's 10th professional sailing season on New York Harbor, where he has safely logged over 38,000 incident free nautical miles since pursuing his dream to take people sailing for a living a decade ago! Each sail is customizable but a typical 4 hour sail includes sailing down the Hudson River from Chelsea Piers (passing Lower Manhattan) to get as close to the Statue of Liberty as possible. From there, we sail around Governors Island and underneath the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges on the East River before returning. Waters, sodas, and ice are included. Bring your own food and alcohol to personalize the experience. Convenient located at Chelsea Piers (Pier 59) in Manhattan. Visit my website to book your sail!

Eric is an amazing captain and customer service is among the best. Great communication beforehand answering any questions with a quick easy payment and reservation process followed by the best experience of any tour you could take. Beautiful boat with a wealth of knowledge provided by Eric who is super down to earth and just fun to sail with. Can’t wait to visit NYC again and go sailing again! Best value for an unforgettable experience.

This is the second time I've sailed with Eric and it won't be the last. It is always a blast I seriously recomend sailing at least to Statue of Liberty and then through the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges

Captain Eric is the absolute best! I chose Narwahl Charter to propose to my fiancé and it was the best decision I made. Captain Eric communicated frequently leading up to the trip, helped plan when and how I would drop to one knee, and made it a priority to make everyone on the boat comfortable leading up to the special moment! I 100% recommend Narwhal Charter, thank you so much for everything Captain Eric!

This was my third sail with Eric. I now use a Narwahl Charter experience as the gift for people who don’t need anything, for newcomers to NYC or impressing the most jaded city slickers. Eric is a knowledgeable and hospitable Captain. I can’t think of one area for improvement. There is nothing more surreal then viewing lower Manhattan, Lady Liberty or the Brooklyn Bridge in the quiet of a sailboat with an occasional sound of a buoy or a flapping sail. I highly recommend it.

Incredible experience. Eric took my family and I on a beautiful 3 hour sail around sunset. The boat had everything, and we could not have felt safer or been happier with the experience. Eric was a perfect captain, very responsive and organized and he accommodated all our needs. Highly recommend and can’t wait to do it again!
