    “It is hot waiting in line so stay in the shade and don’t forget sun screen. There were ppl who wore dresses which blew away. We really enjoyed our cruise and we avoided a storm which made it really exciting. Loved the views and the watching the workings of the sails. We got really close to the statue. We left late because they did wait for someone running late even though they advertised they will not wait. Then we had to get a tow bc of the wind to get out of the harbor. Once we were on the water we loved it. They have us a drink bc of the wait but then they never came back to get your empty can. So we were trying to take pics while holding the drinks, awkward. The kids loved moving up front to king of the world it. They did take our pics when we asked them to which was nice. We had an eventful time because there was a storm in the distance but we enjoyed it. Maybe if the water was smoother you could enjoy drinks but we really didn’t take advantage of that. But to wrap up, it was a super fun time, awesome way to see the statue and wonderful views of the city. We are so glad we did this experience!”
    “The sail was a beautiful relaxing experience. We didn't realize that it was more of a Statue of Liberty tour, however, it was great! Thanks! ”
    “We are local New Yorkers, not visiting tourists, and we very much enjoyed this sailing experience. It is a beautiful view to see the city and the Statue of Liberty from the harbor while being on a sail boat instead of a crowded ferry. The experience was relaxing, the crew and captain were fun and engaging, and the onboard bar allowed for a nice glass of wine. We would highly recommend this sail and would consider gifting it to friends as well. Great for couples, families with kids, or a group of friends. ”
    “Excellent from beginning to end!!!”
    “What a gorgeous summer excursion! Beautiful time sailing on New York Harbor!!! ”
    “Everyone on board was very nice. They were very reassuring to the landlubbers in the group. It was a great 90 minutes on board!”
    “Crowded, shorter than expected, other participants drunk and loud ”
    “I bought the Shearwater sailing tour around NY Harbor. We found the dock very easily. However, I had a little trouble finding the boat b/c the sign for it was below sight level. Other than that, we had a great experience. The boat is beautiful and the staff were great. They were very attentive and answered any questions anyone had. It is a very relaxing way to see the New York City Skyline. It was one of the most beautiful days of the summer so that helped to enjoy it even more. I would highly recommend this trip. ”
    “The crew was very pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. The ship itself was clean, beautiful and unique when you went under the deck. The only issue I would say is the seating is a little scarce, but my girlfriend and I were lucky enough to get the seat we wanted and had a wonderful time!”
    “We had a fabulous time on the Hudson river sail! It was doubly delightful because of the amazing weather we had. Would highly recommend this experience/excursion!”
    “Perfect gift for friends, family, and clients. The NY Harbor Sail was easy, beautiful, unique and we will book it again in a heartbeat. I loved it!”
    “Breathtaking! Everything from start to finish was amazing. The captain and his mates were very nice and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better time, truly one of the best experiences we have had!”
