We did the happy hour cruise and had a blast! The crew is so friendly and engaging. The crew was more than happy to answer any questions about the boat or sites along the harbor. You will not be disappointed.

We love NYC so decided that we wanted to see it from a different perspective and took the sunset sail. What a fun trip! There was no annoying narration about what we were seeing...just a beautiful night on the water. The staff was really pleasant...More

The whole family was in manhattan, some for the first time, and I thought going to see the Statue of Liberty would be fun. Everyone was excited. The weather didn’t look good, but it cleared up enough to go out and enjoy a lovely sail!...More

Very enjoyable sailing cruise in New York harbor. Excellent photo opportunities. Crew was pleasant and were glad to answer questions about the ship. Plan to go aboard again the next time in New York.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

I wouldn't bring a meal, but if a few little snacks fit in your purse or backpack, I can't see that being a problem. Yes there is a washroom. Enjoy!

I do not believe so It would probably have to stay in the pram and someone is going to have to hold the pram all the time while the other person can walk around the boat. Not too much shade on the boat so can get quiet... More
