Get ready for a Sunday brunch with a difference as you set sail aboard the magnificent Schooner, ‘Shearwater'. This is a New York dining adventure like no other, showcasing spectacular waterfront views and a delicious champagne buffet brunch.
Relive the elegance of a bygone era aboard a boat that is the city's only designated floating landmark and enjoy breathtaking views of world famous sites including the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and much, much more.
Experience the thrill of sailing aboard a vintage schooner while delighting in the splendors of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty or the beauty of the oceans beyond. Your package includes a plentiful buffet, tea and coffee service as well as an open bar. Menu includes assorted muffins, homemade breads and cakes, bagels, salmon and selected meats and cheeses.
Hand built in 1929 from native hardwoods, the 82-foot schooner ‘Shearwater' dates back to a bygone era of yachting. New York City's only floating designated landmark, the ship has its own rich, colorful history. It was requisitioned during World War 2 to become part of the Coast Guard, has circumnavigated the globe and has competed in world yachting events.
Tours take place every Sunday at 11am. Sailing is not weather dependent and brunch cruises take place come rain or shine!
The personal are willing to work with you completely. Activity greatly affected by weather and people on board. Thankfully all was well :)
