We will greet you at Slip 2 in Battery Park, The Battery, right next to the Statue of Liberty Ferry. You will be invited on board our clipper ship, the CLIPPER CITY TALL SHIP, given a short safety speech and orientation where questions will be answered; and we will motor off the dock and get underway. We will raise sails once we have cleared the sea wall and sail around the harbor for somewhere between 1.5 - 2 hours depending on the time of day. You will be able to walk around the vessel and tour the below deck cabins and are invited to engage my knowledgeable crew with any questions you might have as we sail past the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, in view of bridges and other landmarks of NY Harbor. With the wind in your hair, Seagulls, bouys, foghorns and passing ships and tugboats will add to the serene and exciting respite from your busy NYC day that will leave you energized and ready for more.
Full Bar options available.
Bathrooms Available on Board the boat.
I was born and raised in NYC and first began volunteering aboard historic sailboats here in NY Harbor approximately 30 years ago. I and my carefully selected crew hold U.S. Coast Guard issued 100-ton captain's licenses; we have been sharing our love of sailing large vintage schooners under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty and the NY Skyline with locals and visitors to NY for the past 19 years. My largest boat, the CLIPPER CITY, is a 158' replica of a pre-Civil War Era boat built in 1854; she sailed until 1892. She was the fastest and largest ship of her day. Your host will be either me or one of my friendly captains. We take pride in offering an intimate, casual experience here in NY harbor as an alternative to the large ferry boat sightseeing trips to the Statue. Come down and enjoy a little part of NYC's history.
Unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, Colgate Clock, NY Skyline from the deck of a replica of a pre-Civil War Era Clipper Ship. Its epic and part of the experience!
