Shearwater daytime sails

Join us aboard for an intimate and thrilling way to visit New York's magnificent harbour on a meticulously maintained, 82 foot, 1929 vintage sailboat, the Shearwater. Enjoy a 90-minute voyage around New York Harbor that allows passengers to take in some of New York City's most famous sights while relaxing aboard a stately schooner yacht. > A cheerful staff member will greet you at the North Cove Marina, where you can snap photos of the elegant Shearwater against the stunning backdrop of Manhattan's World Financial Center, Freedom Tower (One World Trade Center) and other iconic downtown buildings before the sail begins. Once you board the boat, find a spot to settle on one of the various benches or even sprawl out on the teak deck with a drink available from the bar. > The voyage offers a wonderful opportunity to get an up close look at the art of sailing, as you can watch the crew in action. Passengers have freedom to move about at all times, so those who are curious about sailing may want to observe the captain steering the boat or head below deck for a look at what it would be like to sleep on board. > This scenic trip provides many photo opportunities, as the Shearwater's slow glide along the Hudson River provides passengers with ample chance to snap shots of the New York and New Jersey skylines from various vantage points. The Shearwater's unhurried pace as it circles around New York Harbour will also give passengers plenty of time to take photographs of Ellis Island and the seemingly close-enough-to-touch Statue of Liberty.
