We enjoyed our time on the clipper city sail, it was very relaxing. The guides aboard offered no information though, and didn't interact with the passengers at all. There were great views, just weren't sure what we were seeing, as far as the downtown views....More

My husband and I sailed around 2:00 in the afternoon. The weather was perfect. We had really great views of the skyline, Statue of Liberty, and Brooklyn Bridge. It was very relaxing, and you got to enjoy the scenery without a tour guide talking.

A lovely calm & gentle way to approach the statue of liberty. Near enough for ample photo opportunities and great view of the Manhattan skyline. We'd visited before but in December & on one of the faster boats so this was perfect for a hot...More

We were walking to the Staten Island Ferry to take the ride across to see the Statue of Liberty, when we walked by the Clipper City Tall Ship. They were minutes away from setting sail, and they gave us a deal of $22 per person....More

Took the "Twilight Sail" on a beautiful very warm night in September and had one of my best times in NYC! It was a smooth almost 2 hours sail with lots of sunset photo opportunities and passing by Miss Liberty. The staff was very friendly,...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
