This is an amazing experience! Anyone who loves the water and boating will truly appreciate this trip. My only suggestion to make it better is better directions and signs for the slip where the boat is to be met as it is not clear when you get to Battery Park where to go as the slips are not marked by number. Thanks to the crew for a truly great cruise!

This is the way to sail the NY harbor....without the crowds. Help lift the sails and have a nice cool drink while seeing the best scenery around. Fun especially if you have a group.
