Step back in time to a bygone era of sailing on a ship that has become the city’s only floating landmark.
Watch night fall over the New York skyline and see the sun set behind the Statue of Liberty. Drink in unmissable views of Ellis Island and Manhattan’s waterfront in the flickering light of sunset and watch in awe as the landscape becomes bathed in russets and gold. You’ll have the best seat in the house aboard an elegant 1929 Schooner, dating back to the Great Gatsby era.
A truly magical tour showcasing New York as never before, this is the perfect way to kick-start your evening or relax at the end of a long day.
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 also includes a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink on arrival.
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.
