A great way to see the Manhattan skyline and the Statue of liberty at a very reasonable price. The Skipper and the crew were all friendly and helpful and there was no constant tour guide chatter, so you can relax and watch the sights as...More

On the day when we thought we were to go on this trip, we realised that we had, in fact, mistakenly booked it for the evening before. We called the Manhattan By Sail staff who offered to let us on to the tour that evening...More

We couldn't decide between the Circle Line and this harbor cruise, and we are so happy that we settled on this one. This is New York's only tall ship, and the crew unfurls the sails to take you on the 1-1.5 hour cruise around the...More

A great way to view the Manhattan skyline, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty while enjoying fresh air and a cocktail. Another plus...no continual drone from a tour guide!

Highly recommend this boat trip! I had done a schooner trip before from South Street Seaport a few years ago, and this one was just as nice. We took the happy hour cruise by the Statue of Liberty with my teenage girls and my 80...More

We happened to walk by the tall ship at night and decided to give it a try the next day. This was probably the best activity we did in NYC. Friendly staff, clean restrooms and awesome gin and tonic at the bar on the ship...More

After reading other negative reviews, I was feeling a little cautious, but it seemed like such a nice activity. After waiting to board in 90 degree heat, the sail was canceled 5mins after the scheduled departing time. There is a lot to do in NY,...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
