Such a great afternoon. Was worried it would be a rough ride as the Clipper pales in size next to some of the other tour boat monstrosities. But no, it was fine! Really friendly crew, no annoying tour guide commentaries over loudspeakers, no crowds of...More

I was not impressed with this cruise. It was difficult to find the slip. It was in the early afternoon. There was little or no cover from the sun on a 90 degree day. We just randomly floated around the bay without narration. The crew...More

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 am pretty sure that the sail boat is too small for that. Sorry. You can contact them directly in order to double check.
