Statue of Liberty Tall Ship Sailing Cruise

    What to Expect
    Set sail on New York City’s waters on board the Clipper City. Departing from Slip 2 on the south side of Battery Park, this sightseeing voyage explores New York Harbor with outstanding views of the Big Apple’s best attractions.
    The original Clipper City was built as a lumber-hauling cargo schooner just before the start of the Civil War. It was then rebuilt from the original plans, which were on loan from the Smithsonian Institution, and more recently refurbished to the modern-day sailing vessel on this tour. The new and improved Clipper City is 158 feet (47 m) long and 120 feet (36 m) high and can accommodate 130 passengers, more than any other sailboat of its kind in the United States.
    On this 1.5-hour afternoon sail, enjoy beautiful views of New York City landmarks from one of two decks.

    Forget the other crowded and noisy cruises and go for this quieter version. Smaller ship, powered by sails. Cruise lasts about one and half hours and it circles the bay, approaching the Statue of Liberty and going around Governors Island. Some fabulous views ofcourse.

    The Clipper City schooner cruise should be on every NYC visitor's list! We four travelers took a leisurely, exciting, and informative sail around the Statue of Liberty and can't wait to do it again. The captain and crew were personable, professional, and took excellent care...More

    Fun time. The crew are very nice. This beats the crowded ferry rides for sure. You don’t get real close to the Statue of Liberty but close enough for great photo ops. If you are willing to chance not getting tickets if sold out...The were...More
