I went on a sunset cruise this summer with my mom and daughter. It was an absolutely great time. Beautiful views and the ride lasted a long time. It wasn't crowded so there was plenty of seating. The captain and staff were super friendly. The...More

The Manhattan Clipper knows how to throw a party! This evening cruise was filled with cool jazz from the 20's-40's. To add to the coolness of this cruise, there were professional dances that lit up the floor and turned up the heat. This non-stop entertainment...More

Superb sail in New York Harbor. So peaceful and beautiful. I haven't been that relaxed since being under general anesthesia for knee surgery. Five hundred stars!

Sailing into the sunset and enjoying the southern Manhattan skyline is a great and rewarding activity. The specific attraction 'Manhattan by Sail' is, however, different. First of all, its price-tag is much steeper ($50 pp) than comparable boat cruises of the same 2 hours duration...More

Fantastic views and knowledgeable guide. Lovely way to chill out and see the skyline. Bar on board, so just sit back and relax! Let them raise the sails and drift along

Took this sail around Hudson River. Beautiful views of Manhattan and up close views of Statue of Liberty. If you are a photo junkie, you've got to try this. There is even a cash bar on board. Enough room for all passengers to move around...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
