Owner description: Dedicated to helping locals and visitors alike enjoy the unique wonders of New York City, Classic Harbor Line hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a relaxing, inspiring and breathtaking cruise through the waters we proudly call home. Our three classic yachts – the Schooner Adirondack and the Schooner America 2.0 (our sailboats), and the Luxury Yacht Manhattan (our motorized yacht) are reminiscent of the classic boats that cruised the NYC waters a hundred years ago.

We cruised on the Adirondack III one sunny beautiful evening and watched the sunset as we sailed by Lady Liberty. Absolutely beautiful and relaxing. The crew was excellent and the service second to none. Anyone who wanted a drink always had one! We had a perfect evening with absolutely amazing wind. Highly recommend this company. Take your meal on board with you and enjoy New York from a new perspective.

Booked trip for sunset... Boarding the boat it began to rain... We set sail anyways but thunder and lightening started... After 1 hr ( trip is supposed to be 2 hrs) we had to head back in as storm was getting very close... Bit disappointed that we didn't get to see the statue of liberty but safety prevails! We were offered to reschedule for another day but it was the last day of holiday so they gave us a FULL refund... Very impressed with the crew and the classic harbor line tours for very swift customer service... Will have to return to experience the full sail

My boyfriend and I reserved the sunset cruise on one of their sailboats for our last night in the city. I was practically in tears when a horrible thunderstorm came into New York during our weekend there, threatening to ruin our boat ride. I hoped all weekend long that the weather would clear up for our boat ride, but unfortunately we got a call a few hours before our intended departure informing us that the weather was not safe enough for them to take the sailboat out. They gave us three options: A full refund, credit towards a future ride, or a ride for that night on one of their yachts (partially indoors, making it okay to take the boat out during rain). We took the third option.

We got very lucky, and the weather actually cleared up so we were able to sit on the bow of the yacht in the open air. The boat ride was perfect, the each member of the staff was very nice (one of the bartenders even came around the boat multiple times to take pictures of us at some good photo-ops).

Besides the great service, I really respect this company for the options they provided us with when the weather prevented us from going out on the boat we booked.

I cannot recommend them enough!

We enjoyed the Schooner Adirondack cruise. It is 2 hours, we had wind and the sails were up. The friendly crew, kept our glasses filled! This is a small boat and you will not be able to walk around or change your seating. I wish we were at the beginning of the line and were able to sit on the other side for better sunset views. It is wonderful to be on the water and cruise by the Statue of LIberty. City and bridges all were beautiful. It is hard to get across town for the 6:45 cruise. Take the train or walk, I would not suggest taking a cab. I also would suggest eating before you get to the pier. I felt the choices were limited at the pier, we had a snack at the brewery at pier 59, part of the Chelsea pier complex.
