Owner description: Manhattan by Sail has a diverse little fleet of ships that sail the NY Harbor daily and a corresponding myriad of options for any and all who want to experience the thrill of sailing in the world’s greatest harbor. Our newest addition is the Clipper City, a 158-ft. tall ship that can accommodate up to 150 passengers. A more intimate experience can be had on the Shearwater, a historic schooner with capacity up to 48 passengers.

“Blue Moon fun!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We sailed on the Clipper ship out of the seaport this past Friday night on the Blue Moon sail - unlimited Blue Moon beer to see the blue moon! Excellent time! Staff was friendly, bar was not so crowded that you had to wait forever for you drinks, crowd was fine. It was a beautiful night - great vantage point from which to see southern Manhattan ablaze in light, as well as the Statue of Liberty! Never mind that the moon was amazing! Great way to spend a clear night in the city!

“Lovely cruise with attentive staff”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Just celebrated Dad's 90th birthday aboard the Shearwater. The staff was very accommodating and let us board first. We were on the 7 PM cruise and enjoyed the views, some wine, and friendly conversation. Age-range on the trip was 6 years old to, you guessed it, 90. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

“Fantastic boat trip”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We chose the City Clipper twilight cruise for our anniversary and it was lovely to escape the heat of the city. The cruise leaves Pier 17 at 7pm for 2 hours and you can help raise the sails if you fancy it. The crew were very friendly and there is a bar - huge measures (thank you!). As the weather had been bad most of the day a lot of people cancelled so we ended up with only 12 of us on board which was brilliant for us - not so for the owner! Would thoroughly recommend.

“A must do for Families and Couples!!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We got on with our NY Pass and it was amazing. We took the sunset cruise of the NY harbor. The crew made it fun with hands on opportunities to put up the sails. The seating was abundant. They have a full service bar with snacks. The views were spectacular and great pictures were taken of the city and Statue of Liberty. It was a fun and relaxing way to see the city, especially after walking all over earlier that day. We highly recommend!!!
