Watch the sun set behind the Statue of Liberty from the unbeatable vantage point of a luxury tall ship.
Step back in time to a bygone era of sailing and gaze up at 120 feet of rigging on decks that measure 185 feet. This is New York’s largest sailing vessel and the only place in the city to experience the unique sensation of a tall ship in glorious action.
Watch in awe as the sun’s shimmering light bathes the landscape in russets and gold as you gaze on Manhattan’s skyline and out towards the ocean. Relax and wind down with a drink on deck as you leave your cares behind and experience New York’s harbor as never before.
A replica of the lumber-hauling schooners that drove America’s industry more than a century ago, ‘Clipper City’ was built in the mid-1980s using plans purchased from the Smithsonian.
With its sweeping deck, full bar, and a diverse sail plan, this wonderful ship and its attentive crew provide a unique way to see Manhattan.
Tours take place daily at 7pm. Cruises are not weather dependent and take place come rain or shine.
It was a lot of fun. My husband an I enjoyed the sail as a very thoughtful gift from our teenage daughter
